Details of Scam Report
This guy started by sending a text with the email as above ''. It didn't really make sense as it asked for photos of the bumper (?) nothing wrong with bumper at all. I emailed and said, 'please clarify' and received this text :
Thanks for getting back to me! Can you assure me that there won't be any problems with the car once it's purchased? I'm wanting to get the car as a birthday gift for my dad, and I'm ready to pay asking price. I'm currently on contract overseas for an oceanography company for the next few months, so my connectivity is limited and I can't meet you in person. We don't have any cell service since we are out in the middle of the ocean, and I'm lucky to even get internet. It's really...really...slow. What I can do is pay via PayPal, if this is an option that works for you. I know that they charge a 3% fee, so I'm willing to pay the fee as well so you don't get charged anything extra. PayPal usually is fast and it's secure. If you don't have an account, it's pretty easy too open one. Just sign up, and it'll explain everything you need to do.
I want to do the transaction fairly quickly because my dad's birthday is approaching. I know he'll love the car. He is a mechanic, so if there is anything wrong with the car, just let me know, and I'll tell him so he can be ready to fix it when the car arrives.Also - I have a mover that can come and get it and can handle the title for me, so you don't have to worry about that. Let me know your thoughts, and if you're ready to move forward, just fill out the info below so I can work everything out!
