Selling a Car Online

My friend is selling a car. He added it to Autotrader. He hasn’t got a legitimate response yet – but he’s got a load of scammers. You’d think they’d do something about that. It’s got to be obvious from their point of view that someone is using their email form to contact 50+ sellers at a time?

Hey,

Thanks for the prompt response.

I will like to know more about its condition and possibly have more pictures of it I will be very glad to have more pictures of it. Do as well advise on the least amount you will like to give it away. I will be very glad to conclude this as soon as possible.
Due to the nature of my work, I will not be able to come for the inspection,because am presently out of the country. I will be handling the pick up of this merchandise through a legitimate shipping agent.. The vehicle will be picked up after you receive the full payment, so i really need to know the mode of payment because i need this vehicle urgently. Hope to read from you asap.

Thanks again and hope to hear from you soon..

Thanks for the message and i am glad to the condition and reason why you are selling the car.My pick up agent will come for the pick up and delivery tomorrow after PayPal transfer has completely done, so will need you to send me your contact phone number and address to figure it out.

Thanks for the prompt response.. I am ready to buy it for my uncle and
i am at sea at the moment as i am a marine engineer and due to the
nature of my work,visiting of website are restricted but i squeezed
out time to check this advert and send you an email regarding it. I
really want it to be a surprise for my uncle so i wont let him know
anything about it until it gets delivered to him, i am sure he will be
more than happy with it. I insisted on PayPal because i don’t have
access to my bank account online as i don’t have internet banking, but
i can pay from my PayPal, as i have my bank a/c attached to it, i will
need you to give me your PayPal email address and the price so i can
make the payments asap for it and please if you don’t have PayPal
account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to www.PayPal.com and get
it set up, after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail
address you use for registration with PayPal so as to put the money
through. I have a pick up agent that will come and pick it up after i
have made the payments…

Thanks so much and i will be waiting to read from you soon.

You’d also think that they’d get more success if they slowly lead you up the garden path instead of copy and pasting a generic large email.
