I was contacted at night time via cellphone SMS by Sharon Pizzirulli that she is very interested in buying my car, the price was excepted and than via email she gave me all the instructions for getting the payment through PayPal. All this was done within 24 hours and with the instruction to pay the inspection and shipping upfront via Western Union to Jachius Steward, 41 Rose St. Waterbury,Ct. O06704
Than I had 2 emails from \"PayPal\" to let me know that the money was send but first I have to go to ne nearest Western Union with cash and make the payment for shipping and inspection to Jachius Steward the amount of 1100.- was added to the selling prize.
The first thing I did was looking up that name on Google ans sure enough it was connected with vehicle shipping scam.

I posted my car on Auto Trader in the morning and by the evening, I received a text stating that they wanted more pictures of the engine and videos of my car. I had a feeling it was a scam and googled the e-mail address. Thanks to Scamdex, I realized it was indeed a scam.
