Selling a car on KIJIJI First received this text:

Hello, I will like to know the firm price and condition of your car. Pls email me for quicker response.

I sent an email with details to the attached e-mail address and received this reply:

\"Thanks for mailing back, am ok with your price and the condition. I am indeed very motivated to purchase from you and am purchasing it for my leave because i\'ll be coming soon from this field. As I\'m a Petroleum Project Engineer in(Hamburg oil Field, Alberta) My work don\'t permit me to come over for inspection, contact via phone would have been the easiest means to talk to you but we are out of cell range, the satellite is often playing up but we can get along via e-mail. I will process the payment to you now via PayPal the fast and easy way to pay and get paid online, safe and secure for both of us. Once my money is through into your PayPal account and you cash it out, my Courier Agent will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up and delivery at any location of your choice to My Place. Kindly get back to me now your PayPal details(name and email address), If you don\'t have a PayPal account you can easily set up asap just log on to and sign up as its very easy/fast.
awaiting for the info


I suspected that it was a scam and googled the first sentence of the e-mail which confirmed it.

I sent this to the scammer:

\"\"For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?\" Mark 8:36

Sorry, but I am not falling for your scam. You may fool some people with this, but all you are doing is storing up wrath for yourself on the day of judgement. No thief will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:10).

Repent before it is too late.\"

I doubt that I will hear back.

I posted my car ad on Kijiji & Marcus was the first one to email me. His text message & subsequent email were identical to the one listed above. I became suspicious when he wanted to buy my car sight unseen, pay me via PayPal & then arrange for transporation. After Googling his supposed name & place of employment, I found this site.
Be aware of this guy & others like him.
