Craigslist car scam

I was on Craigslist and I found this amazing car that was such a good deal. She was selling it for not even $3 thousand dollars when the car was worth $ ten thousand. I was so excited and emailed her, it was the only contact information she had and asked If I could have more information on it. About a half hour later I got an email back and it gave me the information but said she only goes through amazon protection program. I thought it sounded off but never heard of it so I googled it and found all these websites that said it is a scam. I thought this is crazy! And I had found a different car that again seemed too good to be true and only had an email address for her contact information. So I emailed her and not even a half hour letter I got the exact same story as the other girl. Same story about why she is selling the car and only going through amazon protection program. I only want to warn people so they don\'t get ripped Off in the end. I will be posting this story about the other girls name too.. You can never be too carful these days. Good luck everyone!!!!
