My Grandmother was almost scammed by a Craigslist posting for a beautiful white 2006 Jetta that was listed for $2600. She assumed it was an error in typing and emailed the person that responded willing to sell the car for $2000 including shipping from Florida. Said she had lost her son in a bad car accident and this was his car and her and her husband could no longer bare looking at it.
Wanted to set up the transaction through Ebay vehicle buyer protection (which makes it seem more realistic) upon getting everything set up and processed the payment was requested through a Money Gram vs. paypal. Over dinner she was sharing the details of the great deal she was getting and upon looking into it we knew immediately it was a scam. We emailed seller again and said we had family in Florida that would pick car up and pay in a cashier check vs. shipping it and never heard back.
She was hours away from processing a transfer.
