Hi Everyone. This people called me for a car I listed on Craiglist from this phone no. 1-215-385-3625, the lady ask me for a CARFAX report and told me she need it via email, as soon as I sent her the email this is what she answer me:

Thanks for writing back. One quick question, have you ever had any transmission repairs? I\'m ready to pay your asking price but not cash in person because am a widow serving with the US Coast Guard in Alaska. Personal calls are also restricted at the moment so email is my only mean of communication. I will be making the payment using PayPal, its safe, fast and secure 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 easy to open one kindly log onto PayPal website to sign up. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? I\'m buying it for my son as a gift. I will be contacting a shipping agent that will handle the pickup once payment clears in your account and he will handle the title for me also. I look forward to hearing from you with your paypal ID and exact price you are letting it go;
