first i got a text message to email him. i emailed and he sent this:
\"Thanks I\'m just asking about it to make sure its in good condition as im buying it for my Family as a surprise gift and he doesn\'t know about it, so can you assure me i will not be disappointed? also no shipment involved as i have a mover that will come for it. Im okay with the price and condition , I can only pay you via one of the fastest and secure way to pay online (PayPal).. Do you have a PayPal account? Let me know asap so i can arrange the payment through PayPal. my shipper will be coming to pick it up as soon as the payment clears into your account .

I posted my car for sale on Craigslist. In just a couple hours, I received an email from someone saying the EXACT same thing as in this post. I logged out, then opened another browser to my PayPal account. I forwarded the email to spoof@paypal.com as PayPal requested. Who in their right mind would say they would buy the car, sight unseen, for the full price??? This has SCAM written all over it!
