DAVID GRAY JR. IS A SCAMMER!

He text messaged me asking me to email him at this address: David Gray , and this was suspicious because my phone number and name are NOT available anywhere in my used car ad. Even my license plate is blanked out in the pics. (that means he\'s hacked into craigslist\'s system to mine data) I called the text message number and it is from PINGER.COM, a free text messaging site. Here is his email reply when I said the car was still available:


Thanks for your swift response. Can you please confirm the amount you\'ll like to sell it so that we can proceed with the transaction?

David Gray Jr


His grammar is bad, especially for an \"Oceanographer\", and I called the company claimed in his linked-in profile (a different one from others who have reported this person) and they never heard of him.

His M.O. is to offer paypal payment and then ??? Empty your account? I doubt that he\'s in the US.
