Without looking into it...

NO. This was real common with eBay a few years ago. Every deal I've found like that was a scam.


Did you get a phone number for the seller? Most of the scams will only communicate by email. Price seem cheap? Another big sign. A lot of them don't even own the truck they are "selling". I've seen the same truck for sale across the country on eBay at the same time it was on my local CL.


EDIT: Looked at the site. Looks like they monitor online auto sales as a 3rd party and don't give money to the seller until you accept the vehicle... I would still be extremely careful with it.
