Exclamation Has anyone received an offer like this from:

Douglas Willie

I have read through your advert and from what I have seen,it is priced favorably compared to others so I want you to consider it sold to me ''AS IS'' for the asking price but you have to assure me it is as described. I am comfortable paying you via PayPal to complete this transaction because of their security when it comes to online transactions. Let me have your PayPal email and the your full name so that I can initiate the payment.Since I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, I will be responsible for all the PayPal fees/charges on this transaction,If you don't have a PayPal account kindly set one up because it is absolutely free. (www.paypal.com) Furthermore, I will hire freight agent that will come for the pickup, and also do the necessary paperwork on my behalf as soon as we are done with the payment part of the transaction.I'll like to see more recent pictures if you still have. If you don't , then lets proceed.I hope we can make this transaction as fast as possible,So kindly get back to me with the info below so I can work everything out!

Home Address and time you'll be around because i will contact the UPS agent now so please get back to me:
Full Name:
PayPal Email:
Firm Price:
Phone#:

Thanks.

When you get a message and they call it a "advert" instead of ad or post. That sends out a red flag, because their not from here.

Just got the same exact response on a car I posted yesterday.... I figured it look suspicious, so I decided to google his email address....Thanks for posting this.... I even got a call from this guy telling me he is 75 years old and still drag racing...

Thanks

I received the same email as well. I was sure it was a scam by the way it was worded.
