Have a car for sale on Friday-ad website & received an email form a guy in Scotland asking best offer. I gave him my best offer and told him i'm in SE England so would be some way to travel. I received this in response:
Thanks for the information and sorry for the delay, I am sorry for the mistake made on my previous email. I want to purchase the car for my son as a gift, the offer is okay by me for £900. So I would like you to ignore other offers and hold it for me and I will offer you an extra £50 only if you can keep it for me and I will come for the pickup or I send my Freight Agent. I do not want you to be stressed, so id rather sends my Freight Agent to your location for pickup. Please give the information i have requested in order to make the payment:
(1)Cheque payable to:
(6)Telephone number/mobile phone:
Payment will be sent to you immediately i get the above details. You should be expecting a U.K Bank Draft including the shipping fee to cover the shipping expenses on me because i still have other pick up in Surrey.The reason is being that i couldn't issue out a separate cheque's on a single transaction like this due to my company policy, as soon as the cheque clears in your bank you deduct yourmoney including the £50 as compensation to hold the ad, then the rest would be sent to my freight for the pickup in your location. I hope I can trust you with my rest balance to arrange for my freight.

Any opinions appreciated but it seems fishy to me
