Scam probably

Bet it is a scam.

Hello,
This is Allan I just move to your area and I have just bought a car on the auction, So I need the air conditioner serviced and I need a good expert to work on  it. It's a  Mazda CX-7 2008, Which needs a total wiring system check, I will like you to get back to me if you can help me fix the AC in my car.
Kind Regards,
 Allan

( I replied, take it to an auto elec.)  
Guessing now that i have replied then something about credit cards will be mentioned.
Sure enough.

Hi,
    Thanks for the mail, Sorry I didn't let you know I am hearing impaired in my first email, So I cant talk on phone and this is the best way we can communicate. I need a  air conditioner in my car serviced, I have just relocated into your area and I need the car down here asap. I have made an arrangement with the tow agent that will bring it from the auction ground to your workshop for the service.
   Let me know if you can handle these order and I will be paying with my credit card so what type of credit card do you accept for payment. Can I have your store address for the Tow people and can i be booked for Friday 18th? Then you can diagnose the faults and give me estimate as regards the cost, Then you can charge my credit card.
  I await your quick and urgent response  ?
Kind Regards,

(not going to be any quick and urgent response)

A big part of detecting is being in the right place - in your head and at the site.

His first letter was sent after midnight which is strange. He had Fridays date right for Australia. He doesn’t know my work adress which is also strange if he has seen an advert. Guessing tonight he will send something else. I might tell him i have Mucho Grando money and only deal in cash  :)

Tell him he didn't hear from you due to his hearing impediment.
