Ok, im looking into getting my first car.
I saw a blue 2003 Audi A4 w/ 45,000 miles on autotrader. 3,970 dollars.
I see it is "in my area". But it's not. Thats just where the seller seemed to post it. The phone number to go along with it is a CA area code. I live in NY.
I inquire about the car.
"Where is this located in NY? Do you have more pictures? Why is the price so low?
First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my car. I am selling it at this price
($3.970) because I just finished the divorce with my husband. When the divorce finished, the car was registered under my name. Now as a woman I don't need it. This car is in excellent working condition, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title, 3 months transferable warranty.
From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services. We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at eBay and I have a purchase protection account for $20,000. The final price that I want for this car is $3.970 USD including shipping and handling.
If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name and address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon.
I don't understand the shipping and handling though. Where is this car located?
Nice to see that you’re still interested in buying.
If we reach an agreement, the car will be delivered directly to your address.
It will be shipped by truck and it will take about 5-6 days to reach your address.
To speed up the process I’m telling you in advance that for payment we should use eBay's security for such transactions.
The transaction will be fully under eBay's surveillance, giving us both security and insurance that nothing will go wrong. They will be the 3rd, objective party involved in the transaction. This way you will actually pay for the car after you will receive and test it, because eBay will hold the funds in an escrow account and release it to me only after you accept and confirm the delivery.
After the car reaches your address you will have 5 days to see and test it. Within this period you have to decide if you purchase it or not.
If you decide to take it you will have to contact eBay and let them know that, so they can release the payment to me. If you won't like it you will have to ship it back to me within the 7 days and eBay will refund you. The shipping back will be done on my own expense, but I am sure this will not be the case.
To start the transaction with eBay, I will need the following details in order:
The final question:
Legit, or not.
