Hey, where ya been?
That's the "I steal your money" scheme. They don't want your car,
they want your money.
Someone is bound to respond to your message with a link to a internet
site that explains the whole thing. Once you learn the scheme, you
can actually "play" their game. You might even get lucky and be the
owner of a counterfit cashiers check. Just don't let your car out of
your sight. If they win the game, you get nothing, they get your car
AND your money.
