 Scammer
  Information
Name:
Scott
Telephone:
5712492544
Within 24 hours of placing ad on AutoTrader received a text that first repeated the vehicle information and price in my ad which I have eliminated here. The rest if the text was as follows: Hello,Kindly let me know the condition and availability of this AD. Thanks,Scott.

Was immediately suspicious of the text because the condition of the vehicle was very clear in the ad which included 18 pictures. After doing some research, found this site indicating this person has done this with other AutoTrader ads.
