Posting this so it comes up on Google:
[email protected] is a huge scammer that has been trying to contact 100s of sellers here on the site, both by email and by text from various phone #s and there have also been reports of texts coming directly from that email address with no phone # at all.

Emails from this email are blocked by the site, along with 100s of other known scammer emails.

Sample email/text from this scammer:
Quote:
Hello do you still have this for sale,please let me know.God bless

Quote:
Thanks for the mail. I'm ready to pay your asking price and to be honest, i wanted to buy this for my Dad, but the issue is i am an marine officer and i do have a contract to go for which starts tomorrow and am leaving any moment from now.The contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. But I'm able to access email anytime so my only quickest payment option is PayPal as i can send money via PayPal anytime..Since I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the paypal fee/charges on this transaction.so kindly get back to me now with your paypal email address info so that i can
proceed with the payment.

Quote:

My mode of payment would be in paypal and i will be responsible for all the paypal fee/charges on this transaction, i will arrange for a pick up agent as soon as you get the payment,because that is the only convenient means for me and due to my work frame i can not be able to get there and i promise everything will go smoothly.I really wish to be there to check out the item but i don't have chance cause am very busy Person am (US MARINE). Concerning the pick up, i will arrange for it after you receive the payment and it clears... Pls get back to me with your paypal info so that i can proceed with the payment

From a recent scammer conversation I was notified about:
Scammer email wrote:
I want you to know that this is not a scam so you have nothing to be worried about all you just need to complete the transaction so that PayPal can release the money for not your PayPal account,so kindly go to the nearest store and get it done


The scammer (buyer) was insisting that the seller send money to his shipper via Western Union. Once that was done, payment for the car would be released into his Paypal account.

Reminder:
Do not send money to a "shipper".
You are sending money to the scammer when you do this.
You will lose any money you send.

Since late 2014 there have been some scam ads where the seller is sending out photoshopped titles, often using an Ohio or CA title that has been photo shopped.

Example:
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

The Price / Tax / Date Issued line is the correct font and is original.
The other text is photoshopped.

Real Ohio title example - look familiar? Note same Price / Tax / Date Issued text, among other things.

CA fake title example, used by several scammers in the past with the name/address changed as needed:

Message I received from a site visitor today regarding fake checks from a company called General Formulations:

Quote:
The checks will come from a company named General Formulations which is a real entity. I believe that their identity has been stolen.

I have already contacted the Attorney General of Michigan.

If anyone receives a check from General Formulations, DO NOT cash the check. Send them to the Attorney General in Michigan. It would appear that they send a check in excess of the item that they are going to purchase in hope that the individual will cash the check.

FYI - Over the past couple weeks, there has been an abnormal number of water-cooled (Rabbit/Jetta/Passat/Caddy/etc) ads that are scam ads.

Often these car are NOT in the water-cooled section of the site as I think the scammers don't know what is a water-cooled VW.

So be on the lookout and please hit Report on any vehicle ad that you suspect to be a scam ad.

Thank you.

There have been a bunch of cars listed in the past couple of days where the seller is stating "TEXT ONLY" with a phone #.

Email contact is turned off in the ad.

This is a new scheme the scammers use.

Most of these ads were clearly scams as the cars that were posted look restored or very nice but are often listed at low prices like $2800, $2400, $1500, or $1200. Most of them have photos stolen from other web sites like eBay or oldbug.com

If you suspect an ad is a scam, hit report and select the "ad is a scam..." reason from the dropdown. It helps us clean them up more quickly.


Also:
A few people have reported to that scammers have been contacting them by text only.

There have been a bunch of cars listed in the past couple of days for $9950.

This may be a new price the scammers use.

The vehicles shown were $25K-$75K vehicles so obviously scams.

75% of the scam ads were auto-deleted but a few were on the site for hours before they were caught, deleted, and everyone who contacted them notified that it was a scam.

Just a reminder: If you suspect an ad is a scam, hit report and select the "ad is a scam..." reason from the dropdown. It helps us clean them up more quickly.

These 2 cars are Scams:

A couple more

Quote:
Hello,
This 1972 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon westfalia, with 175,001 miles, runs and drives excellent. Hasn't been involved in any accident. It has no leaks or drips and does not smoke at all, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions with a clear title. I bought it when i was serving in Naval Base Point Loma, in San Diego, CA and now I am in London, UK.
I have dropped my price to $2,300 usd (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before June 30, when I will be deployed in Iraq with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.
If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your; Full Name and Shipping Address to open a case with eBay they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. You'll receive important guidelines and payment instructions from them.
The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 5 days inspection period before committing to buy the vehicle.
In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.


Quote:
Hello again,
As I've told you at this moment I am in in Great Falls, MT in a military base getting ready for Afghanistan. This means that I do a special training program and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or give calls whenever I want. The shipping won't be a problem because I can do it at no cost for you. You will receive the vehicle along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, full service records and more .Because it is a large transaction we will complete the deal only using an authorized third party like eBay, using their Business Purchase Protection Program. The payment will be handling by eBay and you will benefit of 5 days inspection time period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the vehicle on my expense. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info and they will notify you about our deal.

Another sample:

Hi,
The car is still for sale. It is in perfect shape. It has no scratches, dents and it was never involved in an accident or something like that.The VIN is 1XXXXXXX. It has 65000 miles.
I have a clear title and it is on my name. Why is the price so low? I'm in Glasgow (United Kingdom) with my new work and I cannot register the car here, as it is made for USA, according to USA standards. So all that I want to do now is to sell the car at this price, because I need to sell it fast(I already made a deposit here to buy me another).
My final price is $4000. I already have tons of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out. I will take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the car, to be sure that I don't waste my time with endless discussions. This way, I shall be assured of the serious intentions.
Thank you.

P.S. If you are decided to buy it, I can make a private auction just for you on eBay so you can purchase it there. That way you will receive assistance for the purchase, paperwork, title transfer and an extended warranty. They also are guaranteeing purchases up to 50.000 so we will both be protected.

Hello there,
and thanks for the interest shown in my car. First I want to tell you that it is in great condition and never involved in an accident. This car belonged to my brother and he cared for it but unfortunately he died two weeks ago in a bike accident. I have it's clear title, signed and ready for ownership transfer.I have the rights over the car now and I'm selling it since I am not a VW fan. The car is located in Augusta, ME. I offer free delivery to all US states so there's no extra cost. I will have the car truck forwarded to the buyer's home address. If you're interested in buying it, I want to complete this deal via Yahoo AUTOS Finance.It is recommended to use a third party escrow. Due to the low price I expect many replies on my ad; that's why I will sell it to the first person to agree on my price - $5,800 . I am looking for a quick, safe and hussle free transaction. In case you don't know how it works, it is very simple, just ask and I will be glad to help you. You get a 7 days inspection period also. If you're interested, email me your full name and shipping address and we can start from there. Also, if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards !
David

Hello,
I'm glad that you're interested in my 1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia . Let me tell you all about this car.
This was my brother's car, he died and left me the car in his will, I'm selling so cheap because it brings bad memories, it was registered in US.
The car is street legal and accurate. It has no scratches, no damages, no hidden defects. Kept it in a warm garage. It comes with all the documents needed for registration in US, it has a clear title and it can be registered into your name at any time.
The buy it now price is US $5,800.00 . This buy now price does include the shipping and insurance fees.
Location:
I'm located in Mansfield UK and the car is here as well and so this is where the car will be shipped from ( for local buyers or for cash payments vehicle inspection / pick up is also available at anytime during 10:00AM - 20:00PM ).
Shipping:
I've done some research and the best and fastest way I can ship it is using Hemisphere Cargo Shipping Ltd which takes between 7 to 9 days to arrive at your door and costs (door to door handling and shipping insurance fee included).
The most important thing in all my activity here is that I am affiliated with Yahoo! Finance where I have a purchase protection account for $ 5,000.00.
How will Yahoo! Finance protect your purchase ?
This service allows us to complete this transaction in a manner that is quick and safe for both of us. It acts as a third party between seller and buyer to insure that both parties comply to transaction requirements and provides dispute resolution and mediation between parties. Yahoo! Finance is responsible to insure that both parties comply to transaction requirements.
If this is ok with you please reply with your complete name, address and shipping address in your next email and let me know if you are interested in knowing more details about this purchase so that I can open a transaction case at Yahoo! Finance and move forward with this deal.
Thank you,
Andrew

Sample scam email involving a fake escrow company:


hi , the car is in the escrow warehouse www.usvehicledelivery.com in Florida and ready for delivery to your location .To avoid any kind of complications related to shipping and other stuff i have contacted this company, they came to my door and took to their warehouse .

It's is in perfect condition, will come with all the paperwork including bill of sale, everything, first owner .

Free shipping. Five days of inspection with www.usvehicledelivery.com , you can refuse it, they will take it back and refund you. If you like it after the 5 days the company will release the money to me and the transcation is ended.The company will bring it in front of your door.

All the fees are payed. If you want to buy it please register to the company and follow their instructions. See the "how it works" section at the website. I am looking forward for your next email and let me know when you register.

Please reply because i have more clients for this sandrail.
Thank you!

The reason why I am selling it so cheap involves my job.I work as a sergeant in the US army and I was deployed to work in Austria for a while.
I've brought the car here with me so I can drive it during my free time but I found out that I have to pay a large amount of money to register it here, because it was purchased and registered in US and Europe emission regulations are different from US ones. The car will be shipped from Innsbruck, Austria & i will cover shipping fees to NY, you will only have to pay the shipping from NY to your location. You will receive all the documents of the car (owner's manuals, keys, clear title, bill of sale) in order to register the car under your name. The car is in perfect shape and starts smoothly. The car has been always garaged and I have never smoked in it.I only go home once in 8 months, it's a shame to keep a car like this garaged for such a long time . If you want to buy it, e-mail me with any questions that you may have.
Thank you ,
Nelsen Petherson
Joint Maritime Facility,
