Latest scam heads up

Recommended Posts

Auto-5

I listed my late wife’s car on Craigslist and immediately got a  message from a fellow claiming interest in it. He was a bit evasive but asked if I could run a background on vinncheck and send it to a email address. An antenna went up as he called  at 11:00 at night and when I called his number no answer and later got a text that he couldn’t talk but preferred to deal via text. He said he had a lot of questions so I said to text them to me and I would answer them . He then only asked the price though it was clearly in the ad.  He  then popped the request for the car check .A quick search indicates that there is a series of scams where these companies try to generate business with this ploy and ding you $39.95 when you contact them. Just doesn’t feel right the way it’s coming down. I think I’ll offer to run it via Carfaxor AutoCheck and see his reaction

I hate craig's list scams.  I now only list a phone number and specify no texting or email contact and that I will only deal with people that call me and talk to me.
