OFFERED TO BUY VEHICLE I HAD ON AUTOTRADER AND ASKED TO HANDLE MONEY THRU PAYPAL, THEN THEY SENT A FAKE EMAIL CONFIRMATION OF PAYMENT, AS IF IT WERE COMING FROM PAYPAL, ADVISING ME OF A PAYMENT RECEIVED. UPON FURTHER CHECKING, PAYPAL VERIFIED THAT IT WAS FAKE AND THAT NO MONIES HAD BEEN RECEIVED INTO MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT. I THEN GOOGLED THE PHONE NUMBER AND THE SCREEN EXPLODED WITH ALL KINDS OF INFO ON THIS PHONE NUMBER AND NAME. GLAD I NEVER SENT THE CAR.

POSTED A VEHICLE FOR SALE ON AUTO TRADER. RECEIVED TWO TEXTS FROM TWO DIFFERENT NUMBERS FROM ANNETTE GINA. THE PERSON REQUESTED I EMAIL THEM. THIS RAISED MY SUSPICION SO I GOOGLED THE NAME AND FOUND THE POSTINGS ON THIS WEB SITE. THE TWO PHONE NUMBERS USED WERE 864-939-8026 AND 864-938-7630. DO NOT COMMUNICATE IN ANY WAY WITH THIS PERSON!
