Anyone know this car? $15K seems too good to be true.

It looks familiar to me, I think this is the one that was won in a church raffle? It has been for sale before.

The car appears incredibly nice for the money asked. Paint job looks fantastic.

VIN #8R01J142809

Here is the reply from my inquiry. No idea if its true or not but it invites extra scrutiny.."

Hi, the Mustang is still available for $14,990. It has 37,645 miles, clean title, no accidents and no money owing on it, and I recently had it inspected by the specialists from National Auto Inspections LLC and has been rated in excellent condition. I have attached the Inspection Report to this email for you. I am a pilot and I just got a very good contract with British Airways in London and I need the money for an advance on a house here in UK, that's why I am in a hurry to sell it. I have left the car there in US at a freight company, with all the paperwork (title signed by me, keys, service records, etc) so they can handle everything for me.

Link in his email to a site with extra pictures doesn't work.....

Don't know anything about the seller, but this sure sounds like a scam to me.

I sent the seller an e-mail stating that I understand he is out of the country and has a company handling the car with a signed title. And if he will furnish me with the location & name of the company I can have the car inspected, and if all is satisfactory, arrange verified purchase funds.
Now we'll see.

Definitely a scam. I received an email form Daniel stating Craigslist was not forwarding emails to him. He sent me the info noted previously above above. I said I was interested and live in Denver and asked when and where I could look at the car.
He sent this.
"I have the car now at Edmunds Detroit Sales Office, with the title, signed by me, keys and all the docs, and I have empowered them to transfer ownership on my behalf.
Your will make payment to them, they will secure your payment and ship the vehicle (all shipping charges will be covered by me). You will receive it, inspect it for 3 days and if you accept it, they will pay me and transfer the title to your name, if not, they will pick it up from you and refund your full payment. To go ahead you will need to set up a transaction trough Edmunds on their website: http://edmunds.com.us-transactions.info/ using my reference number (FM9606FE7A).

For a more detailed description and the Inspection Report see my Edmunds listing here: http://www.edmunds.com.en-cars.info/...IN:8R01J142809.

Edmunds Detroit Sales Office: 150 W Jefferson Ave, Detroit, MI 48226, USA
Phone: (313) 879-5096

Regards,
Daniel George Cushing
+44 7441 909161"

Edmunds does not provide these types of services and if you search the web you will see several stories about fake Edmunds web sites.
