Details of Scam Report
I currently have a vehicle listed on with my cellular number attached to the ad. I received a text message from 347-566-8676 that stated the following:
"Hello, is your Car still available, Please get back to me on for the firm price as my phone line is presently scrambled.Regards"
The choice of wording sounded odd to me, so I did a Google search of the part of that message after the email. No surprise that that exact phrase has been posted by other persons who were targets of a Western Union scam.
