    This is the auction wo which he is referring in case anyone was wondering:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...&category=6352

    When he said that someone offered him $5000 I thought it must be some really cool video game shit. Oh well.

    In reply to your question about shipping the car and then letting him pay....
    Hell no !

    Him : Oops I wrecked the car
    You : Really
    Him : Oh by the way I am not going to pay now
    You : Oh crap


    I dont know if he is trying to scam you , but that is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard asked.

    Even more likely...

    You: Ok, the car shipped out a week ago, where's my money?
    Him:.......
    You: Hello? Where's my money?
    Him:......
    You: GIVE ME MY MONEY YOU SON OF A BITCH!
    Him:.......

    Repeat for about two weeks before he's NARU'd and disconnects his phone.

    Btw, how DO you ship a car?

    There are companies you can hire out. You pay them some money, and they throw it on one of those car carrying trucks. Depending on how much you pay, your car gets a better position (ie top rack), gets protected, and gets delivered faster. Its VERY expensive.

    Yeah, that right there is why I wouldn't do it. He asks for different site to do the transaction through that doesn't have "SECURITY TYPE STUFF". My best guess is that he's a scammer; just a very, very unintelligent one.
