BarnesGrimes@gmail.com I just now received text from 516-406-3431 telling me he was very interested in buying my car (advertised on cars.com). Made me an offer and said \" i\'ll\" like you to confirm car is in good working order (the ad said excellent condition), that he would pay through Pay Pal, and that for all further communications I am to go through barnesgrimes@gmail.com. He has ben reported multiple times by others for the same thing.

I got a SMS from 15164063431 (gavintyler00@gmail.com) regarding my Cars.com ads saying will offer me a price.... I knew it was a scam so I responded it right back with the following SMS text.
------- Responded back to the scam via SMS 15164063431 Thanks for the great offer, it is far beyond my bottom line price. Lets close this deal ASAP. Please send me the 75% of the payment first immediately and I will email you the car right back. Yes, "email the car" you are reading it correctly. This is the latest technology from our planet Mars. Once you get the car, please send the remaining 25% payment and I will email u the title. Lets do it now. But wait.....what is PayPal? is it a pal that you paid to get it? Like escort service or prostitute? No,no, no, prostitute is not good for ur health, although she will make u feel good. So u are going to email me hooker as payment...? What does she look like? If it's like Taylor Swift....ok I will take it but if like the fatty Britney Spears...no no. Lets do it now!!!!
