Same fake info as the above commenter. This time they were listing on Facebook marketplace. "Selling it for my sister. Email her at..." the auto-reply message said. After sending the email which seemed suspicious due to the unusual nature of the spelling and layout, I did a Google search regarding Facebook car scams and found out this is a common thing nowadays. It's always someone selling for their relative, etc. They also may pretend to be a legitimate car lot and list the car as being at that location. Then people give a hold fee or pay outright, show up at the actual car lot, only to find they've been scammed. So here's the response I got from "Brianna Taylor": "Hi, I'm happy to see you are interested in my 2008 Honda Accord.. let me give you a few details about the car.really good shape, never had any problems with it,no scratches or dents,the car is free of any accidents.The engine runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly.It has only 86,228 miles, white exterior. the title is legally under my name, clear and free of any liens or loans. the price was reduced at $1000. The only reason for selling is that, I won it after the divorce with my ex-husband, I don't really need the car (i don`t have driver license). I also got a new job and moved to another city and many other things have priority now, so, this car has to go.If you have any other questions, or need more info and pics, please feel free to ask, thank you"
Scam. Selling a 2008 Honda Accord thru EBAY for only $1000 that only has 86,000 miles. Sounded suspicious from the start but when I got an email from a FAKE EBAY EMAIL saying that I had to pay using EBAY GIFT CARDS I knew it was a scam. Researching the customer service phone number (818-660-1229) on the EBAY EMAIL further proved to be fake. Glad I knew that when someplace asks for gift cards for payments that they usually are scammers.
