At least the asking price isn’t astronomical
I believe the idea behind this sort of scam is to collect as many sight unseen "deposits to hold the car" as they can get, the trick being to arrange for those deposits to be paid in such a way as they cannot be traced or returned. Scammers are very clever in how they go about doing this. They will create a sense of urgency that you must act now to secure the car and come up with convincing reasons why the vehicle in question cannot be inspected in person immediately. Your deposit must be sent a certain way like through Paypal Friends and Family, a Walmart-to-Walmart transfer, cash to a post office box, whatever. They will insist on communicating only by a particular means "that works best for them" outside of any forum or listing medium like CL or ebay. They know a certain small percentage of hopeful and gullible folk can be talked into jumping through whatever hoops they ask for to send them money. You send the bucks and they become suddenly unreachable.Whats the point of people doing this? Are they trying to get emails or phone numbers? I'm really sick of scammers and their BS!
That thread by new member bbildakid from 3/29/20 was titled "Old Mustang for Sale As Soon As We Clean Out The Garage". He has not been back. The scary thing about that thread was when he said that some of us had "already reached out to him". Those words "reach out" are a scam tell in any potential For Sale transaction by the way. Watch out for those that say they want to "reach out to you" by some other method than the one already being used.Whatever happened to the alleged Shelby in the NJ garage, all covered by graffiti and junk? That had a fishy smell too.
