1 of 3 things:

1) he forgot the 1 infront of the price
2) it has an irrepairable title
3) it's stolen

Its sad that people still have to question those scam adds...

Its not, stolen, or salvaged, it just does not exist! The VIN is a copy and paste from some other site, like ebay...If you email them, he will tell you how he is out of the coultry but the car is in storage, and he will fly right back and sell it to you, afer you pay for it....bla bla bla...

I e-mailed one like this one time that was a little more believable and they sent me the same type of scam back, so i told them i was with the R.C.M.P and that they were going to be investigated. The ad along with 4 other similar ads with different cars were off within 5 minutes..

got a reply

the problem is that the car is near Ottawa because i tried few days ago to sell it, and the person who was supposed to buy it declined the deal in the last minute for some reason, i dont know why because the car its just great, and the vehicle is now in iSold It custody (iSold it its a third party company that protects buyers and sellers, i used them to sell the item, because i wasnt able to meet him in person). So i left it in iSold It warehouse until i find a buyer. They will take care of the delivery and title transfer papers. There's a 7 days return policy so you will have the chance to test and inspect it.
So if you want to purchase it, let me know and I will explain you how we can proceed with the deal.
