For those who are interested I thought I'd copy and paste the email chain here. This "David" guy seemed to be interested in the Myryad MXI2080 I listed on Aussie Audio Mart, but it was just a scam. Oh well, it made the week more interesting anyway.
Read from bottom to top, all emails were sent off to firstname.lastname@example.org (along with hash details) just prior to the "Well in that case there shouldn't be any problems" email. ATM I'm just leading him on to find out the details on the sting, partly because I'm curious and partly to document the whole experience. I'll update when he gets back to me.
Ok.. good, Payment will be done asap, once you receive payment in your
paypal, so you tell me when you will be available for pickup... please
note my friend is adding some amount to your asking price for me to
process shipping, once you receive the payment in your account, you
will deduct your asking price and send the balance money to me..let me
know if ok by you and also email me your phone number...Regards

Hi all, Just wanted to reinforce the idea of being careful on the good old internet (and that includes our good old SNA). I've just got a PM from a fellow who offers me no info other than asking if I am interested in the item listed in my WTB thread and if I am then I am to contact him via a free email account, which is the only way he will talk to me...
It set off my scam detector rather loudly. Don't be afraid to use the ignore button ladies and gents, I certainly will be.
