Hello,
I am glad that you are interested in my car. Is a great 2000 Toyota Avalon, priced at $500.
This car has been extremely well maintained with a full service history. It has 33,247 miles, a very strong 3.0L V6 engine and an automatic transmission that shifts perfect. It runs and drives perfect because it has been very good taken care of. Never been involved in any accidents. It was always garage kept. Recently I had it serviced witch includes: changing all the fluids breaks, new rotors and new pads front and back. The car is ready to be driven. If you need further information please get back to me as soon as possible!
This was my daughter's car who passed away three months ago due to cancer. The car brings me a lot of memories that make me suffer and this is the reason for what I want to sell it as soon as possible. I know she would never have sold her stuff but for the past months the car has been packed and no one to use it. Due to my job I'm away and I've decided to make this deal through Amazon Auto Sales, so if you want to move forward please let me know so I can explain you how amazon works.

Sincerely,
Emily

Same scame. Different name using Lisa Collins for an 06 Toyota Camry listed at 1,000 but asked for 1500.00. [email protected].
Said daughter passed of cancer and it hurts too much to see the car anymore.
Im so sick of these people. Im a real person in need of a vehicle for my kids and I & people like this seem to always get ahold of vulnerable people in these scams especially. I'm just so irritated. Im glad my mom and I looked here first before sending any money.
Wish I could attach all the emails. I still have them

Thank you for posting. Could you copy/paste some of the emails you received? Especially the ones asking you to send payment. Make sure to remove your personal information before posting them.
