Posted motorcycle to Craigslist - individual contacted me via text and laid out the same thing - buying for son as gift and an agent would pick it up and would handle title work upon arrival. Wanted paypal id to submit payment but would not give any details about "agent" or address/contact information for him/her self.

I was selling a 100+ old wood barn on Craig's List. Received several texts from firstname.lastname@example.org main text reads: "am buying it for my son as a surprise gift and i wont be able to see this myself but i have mover that will come for the pick up once the payment has been made and completed so do get back to me with this details. 1) Are you the Owner? 2) Pick up Location? 3) what is the final Price 4) your paypal email id"
I asked him for his email address so that I could sent him a release of liability form to complete prior to completing the sale. Once the individual provided me with their email, that is when i decided to do a little research prior to moving forward with the sale and found this website with a reported scam so I am adding to the scam list to hopefully warn others regarding this individual.
