Just had the same when trying to sell my car. Received a text message saying 'I'm interested email me at...' Thought it was a bit odd asking to email him instead of just calling but some people can be a bit funny I guess about giving out their mobile number etc. I told him the car was still available and he asked for some more details...how long have I had it, last service etc. After replying with the information I then got the same reply as everyone else...I'm happy and want to pay by Paypal now please send me your details. Twigged at this point it was a scam, confirmed after a quick google and finding this thread! Thanks to all for posting their experiences. One thing to note, instead of appearing to come from a random mobile number, the original text message appeared as from 'bernaggio' with no number attached. So it looks like they're now masking the numbers. Email appeared to be from 'David Lucas' - david2bd at gmail.com Luckily I used my spam email account to converse with him! Still off to change the password to be safe.
