Hi Brian,

I received a text message regarding the sale of my car on Gumtree. You’ve asked what my lowest price is and the condition of the car, but I was wondering if you’d like to arrange an inspection of it first as it seems a bit odd to me that you’d be interested in purchasing it without seeing it.

Kind regards,
Marlene

Hi Brian,

I’m happy to correspond via e-mail since you’re busy. I can assure you that the car is in great condition. I even managed to get it started this morning! The lowest price I could go for would be $1000, but then I’d be rather disappointed so I’d like to get the highest price really. But we can talk about this. Whereabouts are you located?

Regards,
Marlene

ok no problem i will be paying you $1,000 with my PayPal account because it’s
attached to my bank account and its safe and very secure way to make
payment. If my mode of payment is accepted just send me your paypal
email address,(Paypal ID) or send me paypal payment request so i can pay in right away. Make sure you get back to me so that i can make the payment. I have a private courier agent that will handle the shipping after payments has been made, so no shipping included. OR better still you can just send me your bank account details and the payment will be made into your bank account asap.

And if you dont have a paypal account, you can easily go to
http://www.paypal.com and sign up. its very easy. i will call you later
I await your reply asap.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for your offer, but I haven’t actually agreed to this price yet. You asked me what would be the lowest price and I told you, but I just spoke to my neighbour and he told me he’d give me $1500 if it would mean getting the car off a section of his front lawn. There was more to what he said, words like “rustbucket” and “death trap”, but I think that’s irrelevant.

I’m also curious about the shipping you spoke of. Are you not local? I’m not sure if sending the car via sea would be wise as the salt spray could increase the rust in the car. As I’ve discovered, a few coats of paint does tend to make the rust disappear, so I guess that’s an option. If it would be cheaper for you I could always have the car delivered to you in pieces. Yesterday the driver’s side door fell off and almost killed my neighbour’s cat. I’ve managed to fix the door back in place with some super strong duct tape, so it’s really as good as new.

I don’t have a PayPal account, nor do I keep my money in a bank. I just don’t trust them. My husband, God rest his soul, was seriously screwed over by the banks. There was one time he was charged $10 for having his account overdrawn and we couldn’t afford that week’s TV guide, which resulted in us missing Muriel’s Wedding on channel 9. We were both so upset.

Regards,
Marlene

Hi Brian,

You, sir, have yourself a deal! I told my neighbour that I had a better offer and he said he didn’t care as long as “that unsightly heap of shit” is gone from our street. Personally I don’t know what he’s talking about as the car has performed so well for the past 27 years. Granted it’s been sitting on top of cement blocks for the past 8 months but the kids love to sit in it and pretend they’re driving. I just don’t like it when they play a game called DUI and act as though they’re drunk and running over hookers. I blame video games and rap music for this.

As I mentioned I don’t actually have a bank account. I keep all my cash in the third drawer down beside my bed. I find there are too many people on the Internet who would use bank account details for various scams, so I find it best to avoid the risk. I’m sorry for this, but I’m sure you understand that it’s the fault of those few bad apples who make it difficult for decent, honest businessmen such as yourself. Is there any chance you could mail me a money order or something along those lines?

Regards,
Marlene

Perhaps I’ll create a bank account tomorrow then, if you can guarantee me 100% that you’re completely honest and trustworthy.

Whereabouts are you writing from? I’m just concerned that it’s going to cost a lot to ship the car over to you.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the information, but I think you’ve written it down wrong. You’ve given me the address for the All Seasons Hotel in Robinson Avenue. Could you please send the correct info?

Thank you,
Marlene

Good morning Brian,

I have spoken to a friend who is willing to help me out with his PayPal account. Have you sorted out that issue with your address yet? Once we clear that up I’ll send you the details.

Regards,
Marlene
