yup. Escrow service and warehouse are 2 key elements in most of these car scams.

Run away, run away!
If you do this, you WILL lose the 35% of the purchase price!

The last used car I bought I located on Autotrader. I then went to the dealers website where I found it listed for $1000 less.
I would recommend Autotrader to locate a vehicle but I would then search the dealer's site or call the dealer to confirm price.

Google "Auto Escrow Scams" and you will find a bunch
I had a guy in England try to run a similar scam on me here one time but we caught on quick.
When I contacted the bank he was writing the stolen check on they said I was welcome to forward the info but it is so rampant they probably would not pursue it.
