The text indicated an interest in the car we have for sale. He made a strong offer and offered to pay by PenPal. He made no mention of trying to see the car or drive it prior to purchase. That was our first clue that something was wrong and that it was likely a scam. Also, his telephone number was from Long Island , NY which is nowhere near our location in FL..
