RE: Watch out for scammers!!
Here is my experience. After I put an ad in carsdirect.com, I received several e-mails, they started by asking reasonable questions, and then they all end up like following:
Great ...,I have to stop the order i have already made.I sent payment
for Another Vehicle But for the fact that yours is cheaper,has a lower
milage and more options .I decided that i go for yours and offset
shipping expenses and other commisson charges with the difference.This is to say that i accept your price.
As soon as i have your acceptance with the required payment information i will go ahead to terminate transaction with the former seller.I have already discussed that with him before writing you and he accepted on one condition,that he will deduct $150 from the initial payment of $41,900 sent to him.He informed me as well that du e to company policy and book keeping, this refund payment can only be made out in one whole amount, because the company policy only allows a refund payment in one cashier check, so i have to instruct for the check payment to be drawn and
send to you.
All you have to do is when you receive payment,you deduct your the
price of your vehicle and send the difference for shippment.
So send me an email confirming your acceptance to my offer with the
following payment information - (1) Full Name,(2) Address for delivery of payment and (3)phone #.
This guy even gives his contact info:
PLEASE KINDLY STATE YOUR BOTTOM LINE OF PRICE.I CAN NOT COME TO SEE IT RIGHT WAY DUE TO THE NATURE OF MY JOB.
MEANWHILE I AM A CANADIAN BUT HAVE TWO YEARS CONTRACT WITH BRITISH AIRWAYS BUT MY FAMILY IS THERE IN QC.
BELOW IS MY CONTACT:
23 CAMOMILE STREET,
LONDON, EC3A 7PP
439 PL JACQUES CARTIER

So watch out.
