Dude I know. I didn't respond to her last email because it screams scam. Originally I was like hmm where is this going, but it's very clear after.

Seriously, how do people not recognize a blatantly obvious scam like this. OP should send her a deposit to hold the car pending inspection.

Sounds like the same scammer I ran across earlier this year when I came across a great deal on a used M3 coupe (was shopping for a sedan but this deal was too good to believe.) In this particular case the original posting was from an address in California but the supposed owner turned out to be a pilot and was supposedly in the process of moving from a home base in Miami which is where the car supposedly was despite the Cali posting ZIP code. Once I explained I flew through Miami monthly or so (at the time I was living in the Caribbean) and wanted to inspect the car there still before making any deposit all contact dried up.

Remember if something looks too good to be true there's almost ALWAYS a reason why.

Scam alert

This person did the same thing with a 1M. When I emailed back cash in hand and I come pick up the car she never replied. This is a total scam so don't waste your time

Susan Branford

This person also has a 2010 GT500 Shelby convertible for sale at $19,999.00.

I asked them to send the VIN and it comes up as stated car above, except the car is for sale in Florida on a used car lot for $45,000.00

Long story short, when she said she could ship to me I said great; can you ship to the FBI office that is near my home. Haven't heard back.

Same email/story you got on the M3 was the same I received on the GT500.

Since she is recently divorced I would suggest you marry her first. If that works out OK then buy the M3.
