I responded to a (for sale) ad on craiglist about a 2003 Chrysler 300M... they responded back by email, giving me what was suppose 2 be their name, and phone # and how to go about the transaction... I told them i wanted to purchase, so they sent me a (how to pay) threw what was suppose to be Ebay... I was iffy about it, cause I shop on ebay all the time, and always paid paypal, but the thing they sent me, they wanted me to go load two prepaid cards wit $500 each.. so I called Ebay to comfirm that the ad was real, & they told me that they knew nothing of it, & it was not from them, nor there ad

This lady pretended that she was selling her car but I found her address related to other Craigslist ads in other areas that were similar to this. The phone number provided was her "son" but he wasn't able to provide me with the information on the Craigslist ad. She asked for my mailing address and email address, but I am very suspicious about who she is.
