even if he sends you the money through paypal their is a good risk that ull be legaly responsible for this transaction and trust me the money you will receive through paypal or bank wire is real but their r 2 situation regarding these matters one called call back where the other bank that sent this transfer will say that this xx amount was sent by mistake and we needed it back or fraud transfer where they scamed a person through the internet and they gave him ur account number so ull receive his money and u laundering it by sending ur car this victim will look after you and their is interpol looking after you

Scam...

Have som fun with him.

I usually create new email accounts and play games with them. He wouldnt even know what car he is making the enquiery on.
Send him a picture of a Jaguar and tell him that you wanted to show him a more detailed picture of the vehicle.

or just give me his email address and i will have some fun with him. lol

It's a scam. When I was selling my STi last year I got similar emails twice a week. The way it plays out is this from what I heard. He pay pals you, you ship item, he calls pay pal with a dispute, pay pal reverses payment.

That's funny! Bump!

PS. This is a SCAM, who knows how, but the fake paypal acceptance website is probably close. Being one who spent $500 on fake NLCS game 5 tickets...find another buyer and do not mess with this SCAMMER

The 1st Armored Division is a US Military Division, not a GB Military Divison, though we we have attaches' from other countries sometimes, this doesn't pass the common sense test.

SCAM I would think. Tell him to wire the money and if the money is still there in 120 days you will send the car. 120 days because the maximum amount of time for the "wire trail" to make its way to the "source" is about 90 days. The bank will tell you at that point if the funds are legit or not.

I did this with a Bank check and a Mustang I was selling , I got the check, set up a separate account and deposited it. I did not touch a penny of it and 38 days later I got a notice that it was fraudulent. Lucky for me I never did go to Western Union and send them cash back for their transportation company.

I wouldn't give him your address or anything, just give him your paypal address and tell him, if no money then no car. 100% of the money has to be delivered before a tow truck can come and pick it up.

only weird thing is, why a british guy want a US car?
No.... This is not legit.

This is a huge scam. Before I left Germany I was trying to sell my other car and I got a bunch of these from posting on the Stars and Stripes classifieds online.

Don't send him any info, don't do anything. Report the account to whatever website you posted the classifieds ad on so they can ban that account.

They are always "off shore oil drillers" or "soldiers stationed in remote locations" or whatever. Anything like this is always a scam.

Some of his story had some truth. Yes the 1st AD is here in Wiesbaden and a lot of times other countries are along side them but the 1st AD wasn't in Afghanistan but Iraq, there is a 1st AD in the English army doing work in Afghanistan. After messing with him last night he quit e-mailing me. I guess he didn't want to talk

Not to mention I believe there is no Armoured Divisions in Afghanistan for both the US and UK. Mostly light infantry or Airborne units. The US is just now going to send a contingent of M1A1 tanks this spring to Afghanistan for the spring offensive.

From a former Light Infantryman myself..25th ID.

The UK does have a 1st Armoured Division..just not in Afghanistan.

Total scam. He's asking for his paypal e-mail address not so he can deposit funds to it, but rather, so he can hack into the account and alter information or access his banking information to take money from his bank account.

I haven't read every post and maybe someone explained this already but here's how they try to scam you.

After you send them paypal email.
1)They will pay with another victim's account that they already hacked into and hope that you follow special orders by shipping to where the scammer specifies, instead of shipping to paypal payer's address (paypal's rule in order to be covered). Scammer also rushes you so that you will ship the item ASAP before paypal finds out and informs you of the fraud. If you would have already shipped, then you can guess the results.

2)Scammer sends you a fake email that appears to be from "paypal.com", stating that the funds have been deposited to paypal and put on hold until you have shipped the item and provided receipt to paypal. Then the money will fully transfer to your account.

Those are the 2 ways I ran into. Unfortunately, I was the vicitm of option 1 many years ago when I sold my rims.

I would love to know what the conversion rate is for a successful scam by these guys. 10,000 emails for 1 successful scam?
