Suspicious e-mail and buy

AUTHOR: Eriobis - ()


A big thanks for this information. I'm really glad i'vq found this on google. I was selling a bike and got a txt message from someone telling me to contack mklmorgan@gmail.com


1st email : 

I want to ask you the following questions before proceeding with the
purchase. 1)Why are you selling? 2)What's the present condition?
3)Are you the first owner? 4)More Pictures? 5)Re-confirm asking price?
I will appreciate you,If you could kindly get back to me with your
paypal email address to send you the money now and your contact
address to forward to my pick up agent because the shipping will be
handled by my pick-up agent.Please,get back to me asap.Thanks


It really looks like in the previous report ... then I replied


It is unsual for me to do transaction like this on the web via e-mails.
Can I get some more informations, like where are you located ? Are you a
bike shop or something ? And how do you want to proceed ?

His reply :

Thanks for your reply..i will need your full name and contact address
and also your phone number so complete the payment for the bike..pls
do let me know as soon as possible..thanks

For me it was too quick and too obvious to be a real buyer, so I typed his name in google and voila ...

Don't think I will provide my info and don't think this is a real buyer.
