I got two text messages from two "different" people but using exactly same wording "Hi I just viewed your car ad, Pls confirm ur selling price and d condition 2 my email address asap" One was from Nick on the number above - one was from Bidem on Web SMS019. Your site and this response confirmed my suspicion that it was a scam
