Same as all the others. Wants to use PayPal to buy my car but she\'s in the middle off the ocean on a ship.(oceanographer) sounded fishy from the start so googled her name and autotrader together . Lots of info. Beware!She\'s buying car for fathers birthday and appears to be in a big hurry. Says doesn\'t matter if car needs work as he is a mechicanic.thought it odd that one day she\'s calling from a cell phone in Westchester NY and the very next day can only communate by computer because she\'s in the middle of the ocean.
