He offered to buy a used car I listed on Craig\'s List at asking price and without inspection. Said he was an oceanographer about to leave for new job and could only communicate by email - no phone reception from ship. Wanted to pay via Paypal. Said a mover would handle the title transfer. It all seemed to good to be true but i corresponded with him a couple times to at least confirm an agreement on terms. But when it came time to send a Paypal invoice, I searched his name and email address and found this scam alert website (thank you!).
