Type of a scam Counterfeit Product

Jim emailed, interested in my car tired sale on craigslist. He sent the following email in which I stupidly fell for:

"Hello, I was reaching out to you about your vehicle for sale. Do you have a current vehicle history report for it? If not, I suggest getting one at:

When I was selling my vehicle I got one from there to show people that were interested. It was only $24 which is half the cost of Carfax($40 or more). It will show if there are any issues with it. The peace of mind it gives for such a large sale is a bonus too.

It will verify that it has not been in any bad accidents, that it has a clean title and that it has not been stolen. There are so many scams out there. People are more likely to look at it with a report provided – it will definitely help you with the sale.

Let me know if this helps. Thanks!"

I was suckered out of $40.
