Zipper is 100% correct, listen to him, if you give this guy that info he'll clean out your bank account. As Zipper said NEVER give that info out!

I had a car on the Jalopy Journal aka the HAMB and got almost the exact same email wording including the australian colloquial term "Mate".

It is no question-a scam-at least in my opinion.
