This is a new wrinkle on an old scam. For years, this company, and similar
have offered to list your car for $X until they sell it for you...question
is, have you ever seen their listings when you are buying a car? Do you
know anyone who has ever bought a car from them? Didn't think so.

Now they're offering to conduct activities outside the US so what they do
is even *less* visible to you.

These folks simply pray on your desire to move your car quickly...and I'll
bet they told you that you could even *raise* your price by a few
$K...just to make their deal even more attractive.

Worst kind of flim-flam...run away...
