Just want to let everyone know to be cautious of a poster on Audifans named Paul Dyson from Mclean, VA. Paul and I had a verbal and written agreement that I was to buy his car to be picked up within 7 days from 7/9/11. I spent the time and resources to do the usual pre-purchase things such as carfax, moved some money around to secure funds, made travel arrangements & purchase tickets, etc. I offered to paypal a deposit for the car on 7/9. Below is a copy of Paul's response. However, Paul called me this morning and said there is "Somebody at my door with money right now and he wants to buy the car."  I asked Paul how this other buyer came into the picture when the car was sold as we had a verbal and written agreement. We discussed our agreement and that I was going to pick up the car no later than this Wednesday as we agreed in our phone conversation and emails. Needless to say, I will not be buying the car from this dishonorable seller. 
Here is the exact email the seller sent me on 7/9/11 at 2:45 PM I cut and pasted (with the exception that I deleted his street address)

I talked with my wife about her PayPal account but she is not sure if it is still alive or even if it is how she would get money out of it.  I will keep the car exclusively for you for seven days to give you time to get here. 
My address is:
Paul Dyson
McLean  VA 22101
I am not sure which way will be best for you to get here - I leave that to you.  If you come by train , bus or plane I can pick you up.
