Here is a PayPal scamer\'s response to an ad i had on Cars.com.

Hi thanks for your message, I will not be coming to view it because of my working condition, i am a Marine Biologist and i am buying this for my Dad, i am at sea right now and $xx,000 is a fair price, i will like to proceed. I can only pay through paypal at the moment as i don\'t have access to my bank account online but i have it attached to my paypal account and this is why i insisted on using paypal to pay, all i will need is your paypal email address to make the payment and if you don\'t have a paypal account yet, it\'s pretty easy to set one up at www.paypal.com, i will be expecting your email. I have a pick up agent that will come for the pick up after payment has been made for it. When last was it serviced? Are you the first owner ? I will really appreciate if you can email more info and pics

Regards
