Auto Trader Scam Daniel Cassidy

Thanks to Scamdex it was like reading my own email. Emailed by Daniel Cassidy with email of daady101@gmail.com. Using a 949 phone number, Orange County Ca. I love the car you posted on Auto Trader can you please send me some pics of the engine. I did and hours later he responds with I am a software Engineer at Hewlett Packard and I cannot come in person to pick up the car. If you assure me it is in good shape I will pay pal you the money and send a carrier to pick it up. It's my brothers birthday and I want to buy him this car as a present. From what other posters have said he fakes an email receipt from paypal showing the cash has been deposited in your account then the "shipping" company apparently calls and says you will need to send a wire of $1800 for shipping to release the funds. I didnt get that far thanks to other reporters on Scamdex so I thought I would return the favor and report it as well.
