I was selling a car on Craigslist and received an instant message from 314-766-8816 asking me to send an email to her boss at email@example.com about the car. Within minutes of sending the email, I received an email which is similar to scam emails posted on various sites.

Thanks for taking time to reply to my email. Please understand that I cant come around to inspect or see for myself as I currently serve in the U.S Army as a HRO 42H (Senior Human Resources Officer) (AG) currently out of the states on active duty and we've been quite busy in the field these days with lots of restrictions, strictly no calls for security reasons. We only have secure access to the internet as our major means of communication for now. I am trying to buy this for someone in time for christmas. I am okay with your asking price, just wanted to be sure its not going higher than it is. Now If you don't mind, I can only pay with PayPal at the moment because its the most secure way to make or receive payment online making it my preferred payment method. Don’t have a PayPal account? No worries. Getting one is fast and free at paypal.com and I assure you its safe and secure. Kindly answer these few questions.
Whats your reason for selling? Are you the original owner? How long have you owned it? Any other thing you think I should know? Do you mind sharing a few close up pictures with me?
I hope you consider my offer and if you do you can pause negotiations with any other person as I am ready to buy now to make it a quick sale. We can schedule pick up after you have confirmed and received payment via paypal. Thanks for understanding, hope to read from you soon.
