There is a person(s) using LTG Patricia Horoho in trying to scam people using MY car on carsforsale.com
I have a Subaru SVX for sale on eBay and someone took the pictures and put the car for sale on carsforsale.com, weeks ago. I was only alerted by someone who was watching my eBay auction and thought the pictures of my auction and the pictures of the ad they saw were the same, but different people asking for different prices. The person they tried to defraud was kind enough to forward the e-mails to me and here is what it said:
This 1994 Subaru SVX LSi Coupe runs and drives excellent. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained, hasn't been involved in any accident and has a clear title. Everything works in the vehicle: lights, gauges, radio, seats, windows, locks, etc... It has no leaks, drips and does not smoke at all. Has no electrical or mechanical problems, damages, dings, scratches or hidden defects.
I bought it when I was serving in Fort Lewis, WA U.S. Army base and now I am deployed in London, UK. The vehicle will be delivered from Washington, US. I have dropped my price to $2,200 (purchase price) that includes delivery and handling to your address since this is an Urgent Sale! I need to sell it before September 19th, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.
I have setup this sale with Amazon Payments so this deal must go through them. The transaction will be managed by Amazon Payments for our own protection as they act as a neutral third part, which means that you will have a 5 days inspection period (starting from the moment when you get it) before committing to buy the vehicle. If the vehicle is not in same condition as I said, you will ship it back on my expense and Amazon Payments will send you a full refund. But I assure you won't be the case.
If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Full Name and Shipping Address to open a case with Amazon Payments. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure without any obligation to buy it or fees.
I don't want to offend you, but the vehicle is priced for a fast sale so if you intend to apply for a loan or financing please do not reply to this message.
Hope to hear from you soon!

They have a "PS" on the bottom of the e-mail with a link to a Photobucket account that I did not include because it has pictures of my personal car that I have for sale.
The e-mail address associated with this scam is firstname.lastname@example.org
The person hosted the car several times under different names on that site. Again, I am not posting the links because this is of my car and I am already angry that my personal info was taken and posted online to try and defraud people.
I have contacted the website that where these ads are posted, contacted Photobucket about the account, going to contact Comcast about the e-mail address, and going to take this as far as I can. I am so god damn angry right now. What else can I do with this limited information? Thank you.
