I have a car listed for sale on this site and a couple others. I received an email from a "propective buyer" yesterday morning. After I replied with further details about the car, I received the following email from a scammer who did not want my car, but rather was attempting to steal $4000 from me.

shoulder and assign a shipper like wise that i will
