Thanks for your response,Do you have extra keys? and When is the last
date you serviced it? are you the original owner, i need answers to my
question because I'm ready to pay but not cash in person because I’m
currently on a business trip and my only quickest payment option is
PayPal, its safe fast and secured and i will be responsible for the
PayPal transaction charges so you can get your expected amount. If you
don’t have an account with PayPal, its pretty easy to open one,Just
log onto and sign up. I hope we can make the purchase
as fast as possible? As I am buying it for my wife that just give
birth, and I’m pretty very sure she will love it. I have a mover that
will come for the pick up once payment clears in your paypal account
and moved into your bank account, The mover will handle the
documentations on my behalf. I'll look forward to reading from you
with the information below so that I can make the payment today.
This is the email I received for a car we are selling on Auto Trader. I looked up the mans name and email on google and The first thing that popped up was how it is a scam.
