Classified Ads Scam
The next morning I received a text message (SMS):
Hi, am interested in your vehicle. Pls conifrm the price/availability to my email address: email@example.com. pls no sms bcos I won\'t b able to read it.
The domain contactgray.com has its contact info hidden by one of the domain privacy firms. The server does not not respond to browser inquiries. The DNS entry for the www version is not properly defined.
It appears that the phone number (202-599-2349) has been used (or spoofed) for many other kinds of spam (free cruises, etc) for quite some time.

I too received the exact same text message. I replied using an alias, hoping it was not a scam but being cautious.
