Same story...different day. Just posted a car on autotrader 2 days ago. Got a text yesterday showing interest in car. Wants to pay via pay pal for a gift for wife who just gave birth. Not trusting the story to want to purchase a car site unseen and have movers "pick it up". Who does that? Anyways, I also got another text of someone wanting to see the engine pix as well. Name was Julietthomas00@gmail.com Beware of people like this!!! Ticks me off royally!!!! :(

Something as the list before something is just fishy but here is the request I am asking him for his Paypal email he won't respond so BEWARE..
I'm ready to pay your asking price but not cash in person because I'm currently on Holiday trip,My only quickest payment option is PayPal, its safe fast and secured and i will be responsible for the PayPal transaction charges so you can get your expected amount. If you don't have an account with PayPal, its pretty easy to open one,Just log onto www.paypal.com and sign up. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? As I am buying it for my wife that just give birth, and I'm pretty very sure she will love it. I have a mover that will come for the pick up once payment clears in your paypal account and moved into your bank account, The mover will handle the documentations and changing of ownership on my behalf. I'll look forward to hearing from you with the information below so that I can make the payment this today.
Your PayPal e-Mail Address : Phone # linked with PayPal: Full name: Zip code for pickup:

We got a text message offer to buy, sight unseen, from that same gmail address but using the name Zack Olden. He claimed to be at sea so unable to pay in a "normal" way or inspect the car. He claimed to be buying it as a birthday gift for his wife. Damned scammers.............. The first contact came as a text message from firstname.lastname@example.org and follow up stuff came from email@example.com We were happy to have a buyer at first but smelled a rat because it was an offer "too good to be true" and there were many grammar and spelling errors in his messages. After a bit of internet searching we ended it.
