I listed my car for sale on cars.com and got a text message from 502-225-3732 at 8:53pm on 5/22/12 as follows (this is the exact message including the sender's typos):
Hi, am interested in your vehicle. Pls confirm the price/availabity to my email address: email@example.com. pls no sms bcos I won't b able to read it.
I found this very suspicious since I received this message via SMS yet the sender says not to reply because they won't be able to read it, and then found it listed here on this site - same message under a different phone number. Not to mention all the details about the car are clearly posted on the website. I believe this is a scammer.
