| Auto Trader Ad for Car Listed a car for sale on Autotrader. com. Within one day of listing received a text requesting more information. Asked to respond to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Received email back stating they would be buying for a friend and willing to pay asking price. I needed to open a PayPal account as they were in a conference and couldn\'t pay cash or talk. They would pay the PayPal account the asking price and to include full name and zip code of location so a mover could pick up the car. Google the name and it came up on the Scamdex and someone else had the exact same thing happen to them. I responded with specific questions and got back a general email asking for the same information. It has been reported to Autotrader.|
