Same idiot hit me up last night as well with the exact same follow up email as You received.  I just reponded to him and said.  You would know the price of the car if you look at the ad.  Googled your email and number and you are a known scammer.  Thanks for nothing!

Thanks for the info, i just wanted to make sure nothing is been left out. Payment will be sent using PayPal. I will arrange with a carrier to have this picked up at your location once i have paid as i am out of town at the moment. In the meantime,can you send me more pictures (if available)?

As most have said, thinking they are fishing for email address w/linkage to PayPal account???

Thanks so much for confirming my suspicion.  I even went to a local Honda car dealer and they believed this scam artist.  He asked for additional pictures which I felt he was looking for license plate numbers since he had the VIN from the Car Fax report.  Be careful with those pictures!!

He is now going by David McDonald but same MO.  (The area code is out of Atlanta.)  Tip off for me was sender "From" name was David McDonalds and signed McDonald.  McDonald is so American, he is certainly thinking we are stupid using ole Ronald McDonald as a front.  Some of my communications were:

What is the asking price for the purchase? and can you tell me about the service history/record? Get back to me with the concrete details.

I cant make or receive calls here due to the nature of my job as i am offshore. I would have love to call but our satellite server has been down which restrict our calls. Please bear with me as i'm willing to buy.

I agree his email should be sent to every subscriber and deluge him with spam and junk mail.

Just to add, he is now using the number 631.618.8159 and using the name David.  You'd think he would change up his MO a little.

Same, texted me early morning from 562-453-0959 inquiring about my vehicle on Cars.com. Gave me his email of icemondo3@yahoo.com and signed G.Mc. Emailed back and forth about service record, decided he wanted to buy it via Paypal without seeing the car. Said he was "out of town." Same sentence structure as the people above, he stated "4 further correspondence."

All of his emails are signed:

Cheers

Same message after I posted my ad on cars.com (see below) - different number for me (2408128327). Glad I discovered this site and the warnings before I wasted any more time than two messages on this. He is still using the icemondo2@yahoo.com email.
I'm going to let the real person know that someone is continuing to impersonate him. Thanks, everyone, for
helping to warn others!

WISE UP FOLKS.. Your first clue is the AREA code.. your next clue.. they always message "it" or "item" they dont say "2002 Mustang" or "washer/dryer"  .. whatever your ad is for... and they want your EMAIL address..(and worse scammers for your bank info)   Email address  are  sold every day.. where do you think all that JUNK comes from..  THIS IS 2012.. these scams should be old school by now.. Ebay, Craiglist, Car.com anywhere you list.. you will get a scam.. if you cant recognise how they all look alike.. protect yourself by not posting. Or at least google every name, number and email address you get before responding.

I respond to NO ONE with out a google ( lol THAT should be in a Tshirt.. )

Read all of these posts. I just posted my car on cars.com yesterday and got the same information. 209-213-7631. The email used is icemondo2@yahoo.com. I just reminded him that interstate fraud is investigated by the FBI. I got the reply "AND?" So he is either trying to play dumb or is taunting me. I may just forward this info to my local field office.

Very much agree Stacy- When I hear Western Union, or Paypal, I say 2 words "Cash - Local". Sure cuts through the dead wood.
