VO96568 scam on cars.com for $25k

Just want to give quick heads up of a scam on cars.com
A VO for $25k
If it was one of the salvaged ones I could understand, but it's the typical "I'm out of the country, pay me and I'll have it shipped to you" scam.

"Vehicle Description
fully loaded, almost brand new, smells and drives like a new one"


Read:
"Vehicle Mock-Up
fully scammed, almost ripped off, smells and tastes like a fishy deal."

Well, luckily my long lost relative just passed away in Nigeria leaving me 14.5 million dollars US, so once I send a small transaction fee to get that money, perhaps I'll use it on a new smelling 1M.

What gets me is that they're using some pics that I've seen before either in other ads or just random pics that people/forum members have used as ways to show off their beautiful cars. That'd even go down as copyright infringement. I wanna say the one background looks like the members' here that purchased the Audi R8, but please don't quote me on that. I don't wanna offend anyone or tick anyone off.

I have seen these same type of scams now when shopping for Apts here in Germany. Of course the apts looks too nice for the prices and the German own prefers to only speak in English and is living in the UK.

I can not believe people fall for these scammers.
