Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
Was selling a used car on Kijiji. Got a reply via text message ~12hrs after posting, asking me to email at the address above and saying they would offer $700 above my $3500 asking price. Since that's 20% (!!!) it seemed fishy, did some googling and the exact email text I've entered here pops up in dozens of other results. Went by the name of Jeff Doyle - I also got suspicious due to unfamiliar (Florida) area code - I'm in Alberta, Canada. The profile picture for that gmail account also looked suspiciously like a stock photograph of a smiling African-American man. Don't fall for this!
just thinking you might have had some buyer\'s interested in buying your Vehicle and i think the best way to outbid them is by offering you additional 700 to your asking price on the ad, Well am actually purchasing it for my Brother at home to have something to move around with when am not available but i won\'t be available to come for the inspection my self due to where i am presently . I do have a pick-up agent that will be contacting you on where and when the pick-up will take place after have completed the payment my self .
If you don\'t mind can you please tell me a little bit more about the present mechanical condition,how often you do the servicing and the history ? I will be waiting for your response then if we come to an agreement i will proceed with the payment immediately.
