Fraud attemts here and on Ebay so buyer beware


Asked by Sep 11, 2016 at 03:04 PM about the 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Convertible

Question type: General

we were contacted by a; who claims to be a military DR. stationed over seas. wanted to sell us a car Blue 1997 Porsche we saw here and wanted us to send $ to and escrow account he is setting up. Watch out for this type of thing.....

Rick, this is how eBay's escrow service works:

1. I will contact and give them all the information regarding this deal.
2. They will email us the official form once they acknowledge and confirm it.
3. You will send the escrow payment to eBay and they will trigger the automated shipping to start.
4. After you inspect/drive the car and decide to keep it, eBay will release the funds to me after you take legal ownership.

Remember you have 5 days to test it. If by any reason the car is not as described or if you find any problems with it I will pay to get it back to me.
I work odd hours, email works best so please bare with me - sometimes I cannot respond immediately. I will try to check it every time I'm free and give you a response as soon as I can. A little patience and I think we both can get what we are looking for. Hope you can agree!
I need to know if you are interested so I can ask them to send you the official form for this sale. If "YES" please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address /billing address and phone number), so we can move forward with this transaction.

Thank you!
