I listed a car for sale on Cars.com. I was originally contacted by a text message. I contacted him through the email address he provided. His first email offered full price (which was over priced) for the car I listed. The offer was, assumedly, based on a half dozen pictures and a 2 sentence description. He said he could only pay through PayPal and indicated that it was an international transaction. He said he would use a transfer agent to pickup the car once the payment was made. So far all the contacts reek of scam although, for the life of me, I don\'t see how the scam is supposed to work. Millions of people use PayPal everyday to sell things. Still, it can\'t be real.
