sent me an email through Autotrader to purchase my vehicle; asked me for the email attached to my paypal acct
my wife looked up his name and discovered he was a scam artist and had tried that same scam on others since Sept 2015; first email said this:
Thank you for getting back to me,Below are my questions?

When was the last time you serviced it?
Do you have the extra key ?
Do you have extra tire?
How much is your last asking price?

The reason why am asking all this is because I'm ready to proceed with
the purchase, though i cant pay cash in person due to my schedule, but
ill pay using my PayPal account because paypal will make sure you get
the your fund and i get the vehicle i want to pay for, they will stand
as 3rd party and ill pay the paypal transaction charges so you can get
your expected amount. PayPal will send shipping company to pick up the
vehicle after you withdraw fund from paypal into your bank account and
the agent will deliver the vehicle to me so with this we are both
safe, I look forward to hear from you along with your email address
linked with your paypal account and if you don’t have paypal you can
easily set up one at www.paypal.com its easy fast safe and secure way
to transact online.

I will process the payment as soon as you reply with answers to my
question above and your paypal email.

Terry.
