I recently received an email alert for a 240z for sale, the car is advertised for $16,000.00 and as you can see is worth much more than the asking price.
After contacting the seller by email (no phone number available) i have received many images and emails regarding the purchase of the the vehicle.
As it seems to good to be true, I have researched the payment method and Amazon payments is a scam.
The email below is the most recent I have received this morning:-
"Hello again ,
As I mentioned in my previous e-mail at this moment I am in RAAF Base ,
NT military base, getting ready for Afghanistan, and I have the car with
me.I'm in a special training program before my deployment and I am not
allowed to get out of the unit or have visitors.I can ship the car to
you without problems using army transport and logistic system. You will
receive the car along with all the documents. As for the payment I can
start a transaction through Amazon Payment.All I need is your full name
and address so I can contact them and after that they will contact you
to explain the entire procedure without any obligation to buy it or
fees.They act as a third party and will protect both of us in this
transaction.You'll make the payment in an Amazon managed trust
fund!After that, I send it over ( the car will be delivered with the
title, owner's manual, service records, and of course the bill of sale
authorized and signed by me).You will have 7 days inspection period on
it from the day you'll receive the car, you can inspect it, take it to a
mechanic to check it out, ride it and then if you decided to keep it,
you'll confirm to Amazon the sale. If by any reason, you will not be
satisfied with the car ( even though I can assure you that it is exactly
as described, in excellent condition), you can return it at my expense
for a full refund of your money, no hidden or extra cost for you.So,
this is not a blind transaction, you can see it before committing to buy
and to eliminate any concerns you will have 7 days to inspect it and I
think this is more than fair for both of us.I tried to explain as best I
can but if you have further questions do not hesitate to contact me. I
will wait your details (full name and shipping address) if we have a deal."
I have attached a few of the many photo's I have received, this is a current members car I believe
Another screenshot is from a blog about the scam where Steve Rodriguez had a 1964 Dodge Phoenix for sale.
Rarely do I post anything but I thought you all should know about this scam as I was almost ready to accept the offer.
