    I wouldn't do anything, especially if you had no business with them. This is probably a bait/switch job. I'll bet if you had someone call about the car, they'll probably say it's not available. but we have something else you might be interested.
    Hey.....as long as no one is bothering you, don't sweat it.

    I used to Buy & Sell Vintage Porsches. There were multiple times where I found one of my cars listed on a Company's site ( mostly in Europe). I tried to contact the companies a few times but gave up

    I saw this site when I was looking into consigning my car. I did not pursue it, but my understanding is they consign only and hold no inventory. It appears that someone else was trying to commit fraud through DP9.

    Good advice. Before you buy a car online always “Meet the Fockers” first. :lush:

    I just found several bogus ads for 2007 Porsche 911 Turbos in US Classified4All. The ads show great looking 911 Turbos and descriptions at $10-15k below low Kelley Blue Book prices. Came across these guys using bogus classified ads for high end stereo equipment in Los Angeles classified ads and learned my lesson --> If it's to good to be true; it's to good to be true.

    There are the 4 ads currently running for four difference 2007 911 Turbos in Miami, Las Vegas, New you and Los Angeles. These guys are super clever and I doubt you will ever speak to someone live or get a real phone number. if you do reach someone, please ask them if there mother knows what they are trying to do - cheat hard working people of their hard earned cash. i hate these bastards and i am going to report these ads.

    This is what I got when looking into a 1965 Mustang Fastback from US Classifieds4All, felt like a scam from the very first email.

    That is a total scam. It is almost word for word what my daughters friend received when she was looking at a convertible VW ad on facebook that I suspected was a scam before she contacted them. Her email was almost identical with "I'm in the military", "it was my dads car", " Comes with 2 sets of keys, owners manual and some service receipts" "car is not local to me, it is at the shipping company where I was last deployed"

    That is a total scam.
