Total money lost $48
Type of a scam Business Email Compromise
I am attempting to sell my vehicle on craigslist, I get an email from someone saying their husband is interested in purchasing the vehicle and needed my email address. I sent over my email address. The con artist said he wanted to buy the vehicle and had his loan officer on hold. He said he needed my title information and a title search. I went to the https://vthreport.com/ that he sent to me. I applied for the report and it said that the credit card was not approved and I needed to use another credit card. Something told me to check my credit card to see if it was charged. I saw that it was charged. The more cards you would have used, the more it would take the money and say the credit cards did not work. Below is the correspondence from the scammer.

To be able to come , see , test and make a deal for it face to face , i need the report so i can pass it to my loan officer and make sure he will allow me to buy it .
I need the report because the loan company ask for it .please go to https://vthreport.com/ and get one . will not make sense for me to get one because i can`t re use it like you can , you will be able to give it to all you potential buyers , me on the other hand if will not be ok i will gave to look for a new vehicle and get a new report .
I know is only $24 but if i have to run 5 reports until i find an ok report where will i be ?
If the report will be ok you can consider it sold.
P.S if is about the money i will add the $24 to the final price

I’m ready to come and talk over the details.
I also need to make sure everything is legit on the vehicle. Can you provide a current Title Report?
My loan officer has requested a report from https://.vthreport.com .
I would really feel more comfortable buying a vehicle with an official Title report.
