Was interested in purchasing a BMW I found through marketplace. Messaged “seller” who said she is selling on behalf of her cousin and said email her. I emailed and received a really nice, informative response about the car: all seemed well. I then asked when I could see the car and revived the following message which after googling if this is a scam, it is.

Hi again, Natalie, I want to thank you for your words and support. Right now I'm stationed at RAAF Base Pearce, in Bullsbrook WA, doing a special training and getting ready for my deployment. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay (using their services you will get a 4 days to inspect/test the vehicle before I'll get any money) so my presence isn't necessary. I think I can have it there at your home address within 2 working days. The shipping fees are included in the final price, because someone agreed to buy the car, but in the end, he never got the loan for it. For this reason, the shipping is already paid for. If, by any reason, you will not be satisfied with the actual condition of the car, you will have to notify eBay and they will take it from your possession without any questions asked, at no expense. So, you'll get the BMW for $9.000, without any additional costs involved.
If interested, please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so I can notify them that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

Regards,
Gina

      Exact the same happens to me! And i was doubting if it was a scam or not. This was her email:

      Right now I'm stationed at RAAF Williams, in

      Laverton VIC, doing a special training and getting ready for my

      deployment. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay (using

      their services you will get 5 days to inspect/test the vehicle before

      I'll get any money) so my presence isn't necessary. I think I can have

      it there at your home address within 2 working days. The shipping fees

      are included in the final price, because someone agreed to buy the

      vehicle, but in the end, he never got the loan for it. For this reason,

      the shipping is already paid for. If, by any reason, you will not be

      satisfied with the actual condition of the vehicle, you will have to

      notify eBay and they will take it from your possession without any

      questions asked, at no expense. So, you'll get the Qashqai for $9,000,

      without any additional costs involved.
      If interested, please include in your next email your contact info for

      eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so I can notify

      them that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact

      you to explain the entire procedure.
