    Hi Everyone, Just got this today after i posted an add about a puppy:

    Hello mate, it's Richard, thank you for your response, I'm fine with it on the advert, exactly what I am looking for, is there anything I should be aware of?I work with Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. Beetaloo Basin, Northern Territory, Australia and the reception is terrible. We do not have access to phones at the moment, which is why I contacted you with an internet messaging facility. I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery.I am interested in 1 boy and 1 girl.

    As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit (EFT), using PayPal instant bank wire transfer service, linked up with my ANZ bank account, I will need your bank details and I will make the payment through PayPal facility to your bank account, all I will need is your acct number, BSB number, acct name and your final asking price.

    With the issue of my details, transferring the name of ownership will be done by the freight agent so you don’t have to worry about that.

    Awaiting your reply.


    I sent him back my bank details. what will happen now? I wont click on any links from him. Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks goodness I am not so gullible to click his PayPal links that he sends - obviously its that part that ends up phishing your files etc...I got a very long winded story at first about him being in the Australian Army Corp and buying a trailer for his son who is graduating! Far out he was good until his grammar let him down and then he didnt want to supply his drivers license...So annoying just want to sell my trailer!!! what a waste of my time.
