I was texted at 12:00 am that he was intersted in the vehicle. He just wanted some pictures of the engine.
His reply email to the email with the engine picture was...

Same AutoTrader Classics scam as previously reported in connection with "Linda Moyer" aka "LJ Moyer" at "relub21@gmail.com" - this version, the scammer sends a text from (317) 912-2560 and asks you to contact them via email to kwilley@gmail.com. Once you reply, you get this email:
Thanks for getting back to me regarding my text...I hope the vehicle is in good condition? and there wont be any cause of disappointment if i purchase it from you? I want to buy it for my daddy as a birthday gift and I am ready to pay the asking price. I'm a Marine Engineer and am currently on sea right now which is strictly no calls. My Mode of payment is PayPal because i don't have access to my bank account online, but i have it attached to my PayPal account. Since I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, I will be responsible for all the Paypal fees/charges on this transaction, if you don't have an account with paypal, it's pretty easy, safe and secure to open one. Just log on to www.paypal.com. I hope we can make this transaction as fast as possible. Less I forgot, I have a Mover that will come for the pick up once payment is cleared in your paypal account and they will be handling the title for me, as I look forward to hearing from you with your paypal information as requested below.
Your PayPal e-Mail Address : Full name: Firm Price: Address for pick up:
Many Thanks
-- As you can see, this is almost the exact same email as is sent in connection with the other scam reports. I have been replying with a detailed message suggesting we use the legitimate partners at AutoTrader Classics to conduct the transaction, so far no reply either from relub21@gmail.com or kwilley@gmail.com.

Wanted to buy my $40 k car pay with pay pal didn't want to view the car, sent a fake pay pal email to me and said some one would show up pick the car up in a few minutes after I would give them the address. Pay pal never received the cash. I never spoke to her or him but I know everyone would inspect a car or pay for a service to do so.
