WOW!!! I knew it was too good to be true!!! Got an email from Stacey Harris shortly after listing a car on autotrader classics. Email was the same as others on here. Wanted to buy it for her dad as a birthday present - would pay full price - was an oceanographer and didn\'t have a phone. Allegedly paypaled me the full asking price - But... in order to get my money, I had to moneygram the \"mover\" Ken Linville in Redmond, OR $1830 plus $170 for the moneygram fee = $2,000 Thank goodness for this sight!!!!

BEWARE of a Stacey Harris aka Kenneth Linville with an address of 461 W. Antler Ave, Redmond, OR. BOGUS address - I drove by and no such address exists! I also had a classic car advertised at Auto Trader Classics. These people pretend to be interested and will pay FULL PRICE (alert). She poses as an oceanographer with no access to a phone - birthday present for father. She arranges for Kenneth Linville to transport the vehicle for her. She uses a bogus PayPal account and sends the full amount of the car plus $2,000 for shipping. The catch again is: you must pay with your own money in advance $2,000 before PayPal will release the funds to you. Don't fall for this TRAP! You won't get your money back because her funds never appear in your real PayPal account! I reported this to the real PayPal and to Auto Trader Classics.
