Type of a scam Online Purchase
The online seller of a vehicle utilizes a third-party seller (car shipping company) and requests that money be transferred prior to receipt of vehicle. Seller lists car at a seemingly reduced price, and offers to pay for shipping of vehicle and a 3-day inspection time frame. Three similar and related scams were also reported. Below is the correspondence (in reverse chronological order):
Because of the fact that I am quite busy with my job and unable to travel back to the States, I have decided to hire a company to ship the vehicle and take care of the sale for me. The shipping & payment part of the transaction will be handled by WW Glendinning Haulage Contractors. The vehicle is now located in their transit warehouse from Seattle, WA, because I had a buyer from there but he canceled the deal due to a decease in family. They have in their custody both the vehicle and the title signed for release, which had been verified by their inspectors and they already gave the go ahead to begin the transaction.
Regarding the payment, there is a 3 days inspection period available for you once you will receive the vehicle in which you have the possibility to do an inspection to any authorized service of your choice before the company will release any money to me. If you will decide not to keep it for any reason the vehicle will be sent back to me (free of charge for you) and you will get a full refund no questions asked. So basically I only receive the money if you are happy about what you are buying.
Please read their HOW IT WORKS pngage ( http://ww-glendinning.com/how_it_works.php ) and decide if you are agree or not.
To be able to start this transaction you need to register on the shipping company’s website. Once you are done, I will approve the deal from my account and WW Glendinning will contact you in order to go ahead with the purchase.

P.S. You should know that the vehicle will be shipped anywhere within the States on my expense !!
Looking forward for successfully completing this transaction.
Hi, how are you?
You inquired about my car and I hope you are still interested. This beauty is in great condition and extremely clean. It has been recently serviced and it’s being sold as described, no mechanical or electrical issues, never abused, non smoker, runs and drives perfect. You can buy it for the price of $7,700.00. I work overseas for Shell plc on an oil rig and my contract ends in December. Then I have another 2 years agreement starting from January 2019 so the car is no more useful to me.
The location of the car is Seattle, WA, ready to go. I have arranged for the sale of the vehicle before leaving the states so if you want to find out more details about how we can close up this deal, do not hesitate to contact me and I will respond at my earliest convenience.
