is this a scam using CarGurus logo? Or do you really ask for such things before running an ad?

Question type: General

I placed a used car ad with you last night and just received a request,
supposedly from CarGurus, to re-photograph my car with an odd object
on the hood to verify that I own the vehicle.

No, it's legitimate. This verifies that you are at the email address that you provided and the car you're listing is for real and you own it. HTH. -Jim

Thank you. Does it take awhile for the ad to show?
