I could be wrong here... but it sounds as if this is another over-seas BS deal... probably an Asian person.

You gotta watch these folks, they very clever and they are everywhere - Believe it or not what they want is your personal info not your car and if their lucky enough and your dumb enough, some money to boot from that bogus check they send you.
Don't even reply they can get your personal info through your IP address just click delete don't give them what they want.

Yes its your indentity and money they want, the B/S about wanting to buy the car is just an excuse to get your personal info and hopefully your money to boot.
Beware of these scammers, never sacumb to the temptation to reply back and mess with them, just click delete and report their email addy as spam.
