    It's a scam. Leave it alone.

    And leave any internet transaction alone until you educate yourself. I'm glad you had the inhibition to doubt this one and ask questions but you need some common sense .

    Those photos are nice but 1) that is not a "restored" car, 2) this is a scam. Best place to find a car is through this forum. It may suck but, when i was shopping for my car i kept finding ads just like that. Everytime i offered to travel to see the car i got some story about it being in another state etc, or them not being able to send time stamped photos. Avoid this ad imo

    As others have said, this one is a scam. Iíve known the real owner of 6960 for 20 years, and it is not for sale.

    Ok, I just called my friend about it. He is still in contact with this seller/scammer. He too has gotten suspicious of the car.
    He also said that the "seller" has been contacted by someone here in Florida about the car. Any one know who here in Florida might be contacting this "seller"
    I want to make sure none of our member here get scammed!

    Unfortunately you really have to be skeptical especially if the price is low and the car seems too nice. One "test" to see if it is real is to ask for a specific photo of the car. If the "seller" is swiping pictures off the internet of another car he will not be able to produce your requested picture. Once a scammer finds out you are not even in the same country he figures you won't know it is a scam.
