Contacted me regarding my vehicle for sale... Hello Rachel,
Thanks for getting back to me on here. I will take it for $14,700USD including PayPal surcharges since I am interested in the immediate purchase.
I can only make the payment via paypal because it's very safe and secure for both of us. In case you don't have a paypal account I'll advice you to register for one at I have a private pick-up agent that will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up at any location of your choice to New Zealand once the payment is completed. I would have loved the agent to handle the payment with cash but he doesn't make payment on behalf customers.
I'll like you to tell me more about the present mechanical condition, how often do you service it, mechanical history, have you ever experience any mechanical problem with it before?
Your quick response is greatly appreciated.
Best Regards, David
Hi again,
Thanks for the info. I'm very much interested and I want you to know that you don't have to surf around looking for buyers because you just found one. This is a gift for my Dad and it must be presented in few Weeks from now. I hope you understand my eagerness to complete this transaction a.s.a.p...? What's your Paypal email and Name to send funds to in order for me to pay you ASAP?
Immediately the payment is completed and transferred into your account, the agent will contact you in-order to handle the pickup from your location and he will also be of assistance concerning the change of ownership by presenting all the information's/documents needed to complete the change of ownership. This transaction is based on HUGE amount of trust and I expect to see this from your end as it is on mine.

Details of Scam Report
wanted to buy jeep and ship to father in new Zealand .Purchase using paypal . Would pay all expenses. Living in Arizona and agent would meet and handle transaction. Asked for ID info from him and gave me his linkedin- Looked legit. Traded emails . Suspicious still. Did not sound like oceanographer. Grammar suggested not college educated and perhaps english second language. Wonder how these people can sleep at night.
