I saw the car on craigslist and emailed about it because it was so cheap. Said i had to pay through ebay and couldnt see the car. Wanted my address and phone #. Said after i gave her information she would send more pictires of the car. She said she was in Virginia even thought craigslist said Cortland Ohio. Said car would be sent to me in 2 to 3 days. She didnt even want me to see pictures of it till i paid. I told no i am not buying anything if my son cant look at it or test drive it. Then she said car was all packed up in Virginia and waiting to be shipped. I just dont want someone sending money and being ripped off. Just wanted to report it and maybe someelse wont fall for it. Thank u

Next Email saying i can go through e bay she just signed a contract with them. I looked up the email on white page it said untrustworthy.
