Details of Scam Report
Shortly after I listed my car through an online ad, I received a text message from phone number 307-696-2657 saying:
"Concerning your auto advert on the net. Kindly contact me on tmagic99 at if it's still available and amount. 'Txt STOP 2 end'"
After emailing saying it was still available, I received the following replies:

Hello James,
Thanks for your response. I am interested in the immediate purchase. I will take it for the price you've mentioned and I will gladly cover PayPal charges from my end.
I can only make the payment via paypal because it's very safe and secure for both of us. In case you don't have a paypal account I'll advice you to register for one at I have a private pick-up agent that will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up at any location of your choice once the payment is completed.
Question: I'll like you to tell me more about the present mechanical condition, how often do you service it, mechanical history, have you ever experience any mechanical problem with it before and why are you selling it?
Look forward to reading from you at your earliest convenience.
Best Regards,
After providing some service history:

Thanks for the info. I'm very much interested and I want you to know that you don't have to surf around looking for buyers because you've just found one. This is a gift for my Dad in Idaho, I hope you understand my eagerness to complete this transaction a.s.a.p...?
I am presently at work in Auckland and won't be back until the 31st of Feb. Once I transfer the payment, the person handling the pickup will contact you in-order to setup a date and location for pickup and he will also be of assistance concerning the change of ownership by presenting all the documents needed to complete the change of ownership. This transaction is based on HUGE amount of trust and I expect to see this from your end as it is on mine.

I'm in CA, so I asked why he was buying a car so far away from Idaho:

I don't mind buying the car for him from Idaho but it will mean so much to him if I buy it from where he was born and take the stress of transporting it to where he his now in Idaho.
While tempted to see just how far this might go, I have decided to stop corresponding. This is identical to what has been reported by other people here. Beware of this guy!!!!
