On Oct.06 2013 I\'ve posted a car ad for sale on Autotrader.com.
The following day, I\'ve got a text message from sherryc@gmail.com - saying that she would only respond to e-mail.
She was wondering if a car is still for sale and needed more information.
Then, she wanted to purchase a car.
This kind of text message seemed suspicious.
For starters, she didn\'t give me a description of advertised vehicle.
Second, there was no questions about an advertised vehicle.
Finally, she wanted to purchase a vehicle without knowing any thing about it.
When I Googled her e-mail address, I came across Scamdex tip off report service, where I\'ve red similar scams. This gave me a reassurance that this would be a scam.
Thanks to Scamdex and many consciences people, I\'m not the victim of this scam.
