Type of a scam Online Purchase
Used car listed on Facebook Marketplace. Seller insists for certain personal information to be given to Amazon and that Amazon is handling the transaction. Here is the text of the last email I received: "Hi again
You will have the opportunity to see, test drive and inspect the vehicle before making the actual purchase but payment must be made and confirmed to Amazon first and then the vehicle will be delivered to your address.You will receive it in 3 days and get to try it out for 5 more days before making the actual purchase.During this entire period Amazon will not release any money to me and if after this trial period of 5 days you decide to keep it then with your approval Amazon will release the funds to me.If you don`t want to keep it and decide to decline it then Amazon will send you your money back in full and the vehicle will be returned to my address on my expense.As I have told you in previous email my husband died recently. I had to move out and now I am living with my parents in Lawrence, Kansas. At the moment they are the only ones I can rely on. The vehicle is at the shipping company sealed and ready for the shipping. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-4 days. Once you will get the vehicle you will have 5 days to try it out prior to making any purchase. In the case that you feel that the vehicle is not suitable,you can just return it all fees being on my expense. When receiving it you will have as well all the documents including title, sale bill , 2 sets of keys, full service records and more. The title and the bill of sale will be notarized and signed by me.
