    Hi, I received this e-mail, and I would like to know if this is a possible scam, I know better now not to buy cars online, but I would like to warn people, so if it is, please let me know?

    Hello and thank you for your interest in buying my car.

    The 2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe with 29,829 miles runs and drives excellent. This car has

    been extremely well maintained. It is
    slightly used in 100% working and looking condition, very well maintained with a clean

    and clear title.
    I have dropped my price to $3,500.00 (purchase price) since this is an urgent sale and I

    need to sell it fast. Soon I will
    be deployed in Kuwait with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.

    To conclude this deal in a timely and safe manner, the financial part will be managed

    by a third party mediator. You will
    have 7 days inspection period before committing to buy the vehicle. In this way both,

    buyer and seller, are 100% covered in
    this transaction.

    If you’re interested to purchase just email me your full name, complete shipping

    address and phone number. I will notify
    MSN Money that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the

    entire procedure.

    Best Regards !

    Hoi, please see your email.

    If you have not touched the vehicle with your own two hands, it is a scam.

    Ratzxx6r@gmail.com
    eBay@eBay.gr
    ebay@buyers-purchase-protection-program.com

    Seems not to be taken as spoof mails and they managed to pay them £600 for a buying from the irresponsible and unsafe eBay.

    Just anyone could steal others account, put an item for sale, manage to take a bidders email, let him try to reach them as they vanish the item and then use a fake agent respond from eBay buyer protection program (protection program for eBay only and a management tool..), just to make thing more believable..

    AA,

    My research indicates that Ebay is not involved in any of these scams. A typical scammer will place an online advertisement for an item at 33% of the market value. The criminal then portrays Ebay by stealing the trademarks and graphics of Ebay and placing them into emails from, “ebay@vpp.com” or something similar. Personally, I buy very few thing off Ebay — not because of scammers, but because Ebay allow sellers with no conscience to use their service.

    Thanks for your site!!!

    I was dealing with a Craig List ad and the reply was…

    Hey there,

    The Dodge Dakota it is in perfect condition, there’s not a scratch or any dents on it. Everything from engine to tires is mint condition. I have a clear title with no liens or loans. I’m selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan on June 15th for a 1 year contract and I won’t let it go to waste in my backyard, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer. If you are interested email me back.

    A few words about the truck:
    – 2000 Dodge Dakota SLT
    – Mileage: 119,000
    – Price: $1,975
    – Transmission: Automatic
    – Engine: 4.7L V8 Gasoline
    – 4×4-works properly
