Fraud Email: Seller Money Wire Scam

Sellers who require their vehicles to have money sent through Money Gram or any other wire transfer company are known to be fraudulent. Cars.com would never ask a buyer to send a money transfer or be part of the transaction process for the seller's vehicle (whether purchase, verification,shipping,etc). Cars.com highly recommends the buyer to meet the seller and to test drive the vehicle before any transaction takes place.

Below is an example of a fraudulent email

Hello,
