Responded to an Autotrader ad I posted, car for sale. Received text msg to phone with rqst for more photo to respond to Asked for more info, then offered to buy car \"for his dad\" as he was working \"out at sea\" Proposed to pay via PayPal and asked for some info. I looked him up in scamdex and found the refs to his prior scam attempts. Later in the day, got another offer on the car via text to phone, asking for more info and pls respond to contacted with some car info and received an answer back with virtually the same wording except buying for friend who is a mechanic vice for his dad who is a mechanic. When I say \"same wording\" I mean literally a page of indentical sentences.
