If you have caller ID, email him back and give him your Ph# see if he calls you back, then check where the call came from.

Ofcourse it's a scam, but would be intresting how far he will go.

Zip.

I must be missing something in that ad. I dont see anything wrong besides they are a new member and no phone number and they are from Ohio.

If one could get a better view of the van in the background of the photo it does have a license plate on it. I would try to get him to call. Cleveland is an hour up the road. I can go look at it.

Dennis, where can you buy this for $11,500.00? If you have a connection, I will buy however many you can get!
No phone number raises really big red flags up the pole for me.

Standard Scam.

* Member less than two weeks,
*Car grossly underpriced
* Bypass of RJ server to eliminate communications tracking

Same scam runs on Ebay all the time, they offer Shelby's for $5500 and offer to end auction early. You could out him if you could locate the original pictures he stole.

Been lucky on this occasionally- he either got them from Ebay, Craigs, or hemmings, or another larger online site.

Email him and tell him you are 30 minutes away and wish to see it in person.

Will either get no answer, or car is sold, or seller unavailable.
