I listed a car for sale on Auto Trader Classic. I got a response the next day from someone claiming to be an Oceanographer. They wanted me to send them my paypal information so they could buy this car for their dad\'s Birthday.

I sent an e-mail back to them with questions such as where they were located and that I really wanted them to look at the car before they purchased it.

Their E-mail response was let me know when you get your Paypal account set up! I had my suspicions that it was a Scam. Their response to my E-mail confirmed that it was a Scam!
