This guy text me and said that he needed to urgently buy a car we had listed on our local garage sale internet service. The car has been torn apart for years, and the buyer would have to rebuild the engine, so I could not see how it could be so \"urgent.\" He refused to let me call him, he said he wanted to make a deal through email. So I searched his email address and found two references on this sight. Thanks!
