    I've been emailing this guy about it for a few days and he is not giving much information. He did tell me the VIN is ZFFYT53A220129731. Could someone run a Carfax for me? Needless to say I'm a bit skeptical.
    Thanks.

    Scam Scam Scam... There is no way in the world that it would be 90K unless it is very very salvaged title.

    Look - but be very careful...

    How about a '98 355 Spider for $40k? I just found this one so haven't contacted them about it.

    That scam is so old, if you go to Yahoo.com and look up autos, you will see almost all good deals are this scam, you will end up with this same story. I have led a couple of them for a while and they get really mad and start freaking out. You can tell they are not from around this country since they start mispelling alot and don't know how to put a sentence together the proper way. Just look for the really cheap cars like a $25k Ferrari 355, etc, and email them and you will see a version of the email. They get tiring after a while and I wished they could stop them or just delete the ads but I guess there is nothing they can do about it. I even have seen it on a M3 that I tried to buy and won on Ebay but then the seller asked me to send the money to London with Western Union. You can probably figure that out. I made a complaint and found out the Ebay Identity was stolen and the real person for that Ebay Identity didn't know about the whole situation. My point to this, don't let these people take advantage of us but I am sure most of you are intelligent enought not to fall for something of this kind.

    hello I am Dan I am from Chicago IL I got this car three years ago when i business got really good and i was making a lot of money, but now I am kind of, on red, and I decided to sell the car to recover some of my money! the car is in outstanding condition I only used it for fun driving, to miami beach or to las vegas for girls and stuff. It was never abused in any way so that I am selling it as new. It was in a ferarri servce three months ago and when I took it out they told me that this is a out factory car! I am willing to transport it for free in any address within USA area but for this I will need anadvance payment. So the car won't leave ny garrage witout a safety deposit

    Sadly I can pull up 800-900 scams off ebay and autotrader alone. Nothing we can do but report the ones we see.

    that car for 11000 I've seen a bunch before. I saw it on a Range Rover. It was out of the country.

    ** I remember seeing on Autotrader a long time ago a Plymouth Prowler that was for like 15k...and 3k miles. His story was that it was used in Porn Movies and had sex in it about 40 times...A deal if you choose so

    yes, this is no good... You can get a 355 Berlinetta for barely 90, 000...so a 360spider seems fishy being priced that cheap.

    After sending him an email a while back, I finally got his reply... Since I have family in Greece and my cousin is an importer/exporter specifically with Greece, I am thinking of playing along for a while. I need to contact my cousin first to see if he wants to play along.

    Keep you posted.

    Hello there,

    Thank you for your interest in purchasing my car.First of all i want to inform you that the car is located in Greece.I must inform you that.The car is like new no scratches or dents, no hidden defects,keept in my own garage.The car is an US model with US specs,it passed the test emissions and comes with all the documents you need to register the item. It has a clear title and it can be registerd into your
    name,so stay cool about this.I can show it to you if you are realy interested to close this deal.I hate to sell it,but after long disscusions with my
    wife, we decided to buy a new car and I need the money to make the entire amount for my new car.You will not have to pay additional taxes,just only the price for it. I have to tell you that I have other serious offers that I have to consider and I will make a decision regarding this sale function of time of payment and price. I made a couple of phone calls and the best and fastest way I can ship with is using GhTransporting and it takes between 5-7 days to arrive at your door.

    I'm looking forward receiving a positive response.
    My best wishes!
    Keanu
