Well, this all might be for nothing.

POSSIBLE SCAM ALERT!

The listing has the car in Hamburg Michigan, but I get a response that the car is currently in Miami (Hey, that is where I am!!) and he can not show it as he is currently on an oil rig in Mexico. He sent photos of the car, but did not answer any of my questions about the build or how it runs. The pictures are obviously not from South Florida.

Yup David, the scam clues are there alright. A small town at least an hour's drive from a major airport for the listing location, then a 1,400 mile change of location (because someone is willing to make arrangements to have it seen), and then someone trying to sell a car while on an off shore oil rig in the first place. Who the hell tries to sell a car this way?

Hi David and thank you for your interest,

please check out the pics. This was my dad's but unfortunately I do not have enough room for her and has to go. Clean title, not salvaged, no liens.

Currently the vehicle is in Miami, FL. Unfortunately I can't show it to you in person because I was just sent off to the rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

I'm using a trusted third-party to complete the sale of the vehicle which makes this a lot easier. They are a shipping and escrow company that reduces the risk of fraud for both parties. The vehicle will be delivered to you and then you have an inspection period for test driving or even to have it checked out by your mechanic. The price includes delivery within the US and escrow fee.

Hi David and thank you for your interest,

....I'm using a trusted third-party to complete the sale of the vehicle which makes this a lot easier. They are a shipping and escrow company (Fake company and website that looks real at first glance. Any monies sent go directly to the scammer.) that reduces the risk of fraud for both parties. The vehicle will be delivered to you (No, it won't) and then you have an inspection period for test driving or even to have it checked out by your mechanic. The price includes delivery within the US and escrow fee. (Because sure, why not?)

Roger Sauter Fake name. Any monies sent must be made payable to another name or entity, guaranteed.
Deepwater Drilling Engineer Fake title
BSChE Fake degree in Chemical Engineering
Equinor ASA - Energy Company Real company with over 20,000 employees worldwide one of whom is probably named Roger Sauter but who wouldn't know a Cobra II if it hit him.
David (69GT350H) already caught on to this scumbag. For the uninitiated, see bold italics above. The clincher; Fake "Shipping and Escrow" companies are on the rise in the world of scamming.

Definitely a scam.!!
Once I was interested in a car in EU (I’m also here!) and was the same procedure. Someone would bring the car over to you, you inspect it and if all is fine, then you pay. Of course the transport had to be paid, hahaha.!!!!
Let it go as fast as you can.!

I'm sure in this case he wants payment upfront before he makes the delivery before you get to inspect the car. Truth being, the car will never be delivered, and the seller will disappear with your money.

It's probably the typical scam. The scammer "steals" the photos and description from an ad and then he posts a for sale ad on some other website. Since he's so far away from civilization he offers to ship the car to any prospective buyer and then the buyer can look it over and make his decision. Of course the transportation charge must be paid up front. So the unsuspecting buyer sends the scammer $999 for transportation through Western Union, the car never arrives, WU says "sorry", the scammer has $999 in his pocket and the buyer gets screwed all the way around.

So now that the seller has stopped responding to me, let me post where I found this car for sale:


And I repeat, this car may not actually exist, it for sure is not for sale. This is a scam listing.
That whole website looks like a scam.
