    I Need some professional input from the Sharks

    Im in process of buying a BBC for $2900--Im smart enough to know if it sounds too good to be true it usually is-The delima with this is hes using the Auto trader as a go between.Im to send the money to The Autotrader who holds the money until I have recieved the engine-I just recieved a phonecall from him & guess what? He has a hell of a foreign accent??The ad# is 1718475-And just when I think I have seen them all??Check this out for me,Theres noway it can be for real--He is suppost to be in the Army in Fl.& the engine is in CA. Maybe I can tell him I will pick up & pay in person?

    I went and looked at the ad and this is what I figured out.

    1) That pic looks like it has been taken out of a magazine or something. It is too clean for a non professional photographer.

    2) I would ask him exactly where that engine is and if you can have the name of the company or person that has it in their possession. If he gives the name to you then call them directly to see if they have it.

    3) no phone number listed on ad. Red flag there.

    4) Going thru autotrader for the deal sounds like a scam to me.

    5) New member. Joined less than 2 weeks ago.

    Run Forrest!!!
    The engine is supposed to be in California.
    The Porsche is in West Virginia and he's in Florida.
    Wouldn't take the chance.
