Asking $28k? 0 Feedback account? Sounds like a scam to me.

It is definitely a scam. It has all of the signs. Lets bid it up and see how high we can get it before the auction is pulled!   :D

Was this car not for sale a while back as a tribute BOSS 429 ?
That FE engine looks nice though.

Would be interesting to see what he would say to a request to go and personally inspect the car

I know.
The car is nice.
And if it was a real sale, it would be a good buy for the asking price.
Now if it is a real KK # car for that price ??
Yes, looks like a SCAM.

I almost ordered the ebay vehicle inspection on it...... I wonder what the results would be?

+1 on mwizz on what he would say to personally inspecting the car.

He'll say it's in storage and he's currently out of the country.  Then he'll give you some BS about ebay protection, so you should just buy the car.

Here is what the seller said in an email to me.

Hi,
 
Thank you for contacting me about my 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 that I have for sale. This car is in great shape (35600 Original miles ,Title: Clear). It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition,meticulously maintained and hasn't been involved in any accident. I do have the title, clear, under my name. My husband and I divorced last year,after the divorce I was awarded with the car, I don't need it and that's why I'm selling it so cheap.The total price is $28000 including delivery and handling. I am relocated in Indianapolis, IN and the car is here as well. I recently moved here after I divorced. We can use eBay protection program for our safety and for payment I prefer to use a eBay's buyer protection plan. The financial part will be managed by them. Which means that you will have 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the car, a refund policy is included. The deal will go strictly according to eBay rules and policy. There are no other costs on thistransaction through eBay. Let me know if you want to buy it.
Regards,
 
Marla Fiel

I'm in Indianapolis...try to get an address and I'll check it out to see if it's legit.

This was the reply when I asked if I could see the car.

Hi again,

 





The car is already at the delivery company in Indianapolis, IN ready for delivery. I have setup this sale with eBay so this deal must go through them.

 Unfortunately I'm not near you so I can't meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my car on internet.
 
In order to complete this deal the payment must be sent to eBay. As soon as they receive the payment will notify me to start with delivery. The delivery cost is included in the price.
 
eBay will not release the payment to me until you receive and inspect the car (you have 10 days for inspection). If the car is not in same condition as I said you will ship it back on my expense and eBay will send you a full refund. But I assure you won't be the case. Now, if you are serious about this and want to move forward, just mail me back with:
 
- Your Full Name - Required by eBay (You'll receive important guidelines + payment instructions from them.)
 
- Your Delivery Address and Phone Number

 As soon as I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to eBay and declare you as the buyer. They will contact you with further information regarding payment and delivery.
 
 

Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!
 
 

PS:The car comes with all the documents ( title, bill of sale, full service records, etc.) It has a clear title in my name. The title will be signed into your name as soon as the payment will be sent to eBay.


Obviously this individual has figured out (or thinks they have) a way to pull this scam off through ebay.

They get your information and spoof ebay's email address.  They get the money sent directly to them and you are SOL.   Looks like the auction has been pulled now.

Auction is pulled.  In the past when I reported a scam like this they reply that they will investigate and give the poster time to correct the mistake, change the ad, or they will pull it.  They always put something on the end that says something like " please don't respond or report this again.  Unfortunately, because of privacy concerns for all our ebay customers we cannot inform you of any decisions or out come othe the investigation."

This is not word for word but from what I can remember.

Unfortunately, a lot of people fall for scams like this.  I was at a old corvette dealer in Kansas City a while back and he was telling me every once in awhile he would get a call from someone who had bought one of "his" cars from ebay for like 10K when the car was listed at his dealership for 60K and was wanting to schedule delivery.  The scammer would do like the ebay posting here and highjack the photos and description and post.

 AK 69Boss ,
It just makes me give my head a shake as to why
people would send a large amount of $$$ to someone
selling an item over the internet that they have never met
or know who and where they are...
I for one will only do a deal in person, one on one with the buyer.
Yes I have sold parts over the internet but to a member on here.
( BOSS 429 breather caps ) a while back with no problems.
If that car, in this topic was mine this would be where I would be asking
to sell....
Not Ebay.
