    This just happened to me. I found the following classified.

    Mini Cooper Hardtop 2003
    Date: 2011-03-09, 6:40PM

    Mini Cooper Hardtop 2003 onoly 104,225 original miles.Runs Great.I keep this car in excelent conditions!The exterior is Yellow and interior is Black .

    Please contact me at this e-mail address: jonmccoy2@msn.com

    so i emailed him. he emailed me back. he sent me more information and pictures of the car. he told me his motivation behind selling and why it was so low:

    “Hello,
    My name is John McCoy, I’m emailing you regarding the 2003 Mini Cooper that I have for sale. The car is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (smoke-free). It has 104,225 miles, manual transmission, 4 Cylinders , Yellow exterior and Black interior . It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. I’m selling the car because my 21’s years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiancee’s car coming to our home at his little brother birthday. It was his car and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible The price that I’m asking is $2,600.00

    Here are the pictures with the car : http://img508.imageshack.us/g/hci5jbmekgrhqzk4e1f31ny.jpg/
    I can provide VIN # to check on your own, also I can send you more details too . Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .

    Thank you,
    John

    I sent the money via Western Union to the following person/address:
    Alex Terrence, 413 Rainey St. Austin TX 78701.

    He uses eBay Motors and sends an offical form to confirm transactions with a Fax #: 1-206-337-9593… then explains that the money is held for 24hrs. then it takes up to 3 days to ship the car, at which time you will have 5 days to confirm and test the merchandise. Once the 5 days are up and you confirm you are happy with the car the money will be released and the transaction will be finialized.

    He also calimed to have another buyer that dropped out but already paid for the shipping so all I needed to do was pay for the car.

    It all seemed too good to be true and it was!

    I dont know who/how to report this guy or guys but I will be calling anyone and everyone to try and get my money back or atleast have charges filled. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Lambert,

    I am sorry that this has happened to you. These guys are professional crooks and prey upon the honesty in our culture. Catching them is rather complicated since the ringleader is probably in Eastern Europe. Read this article to see how extensive this network is. I adjure you to report this per the steps outlined in this posting.

    Honestly, the likelihood your getting any money back is near zero. By reporting the fraud, your case can be aggregate with others so that law enforcement can track these guys more easily.

    Thanks for dropping by and please report this thief.
