Help me figure out this kijiji seller... quote:

So about 3 weeks ago, I get a notification for two new 370Z's posted on kijiji at exactly the same time, both black and both with unusally low km but a reasonably low price according to VMR.

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/...door/1244047845

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/...oupe/1244050837

Both are well written ads and seem totally legit so I didn't think much of it, I was in the process of selling my car so I didn't want to contact them until I sold mine.

I get a showing for my car and so I finally email both of the ads.

Turns out the ad is posted by the same seller..."Amerie"...you can tell once you message someone on kijiji the name of the seller.

Also, on 1 of the ads, it links to an iPhone for sale with a phone number. I googled the phone number with Amerie and it links to a "Cars by Amerie" facebook page...so I'm thinking whatever, it's just another car curber...seems like she works for or used to work for House of Cars (no comment).

My question is...where are they getting these two cars from? How can both cars have such low km??! Are they rebuilt? Flooded? Km rolled back?.....or do these 2 cars even exist and this is some type of new scam?

Maaaan...kijiji is getting so shady as a place to buy cars....for some reason she never emailed me back either.

I would request a car proof for one of these cars and then go from there.

NVM she does work for "House of Cars" so stay far away. These cars most likely have shady histories e.g. rebuilt writeoffs.

Interesting tactic. Get one of your reasonably attractive sales people to create their own fb page as a honeypot for potential buyers and avoid using your shady business name.

Ya I noticed the 2nd ad has a front license plate...

Okay, so they are different cars then and probably actually exist.....but these are pretty rare cars, I'm just wondering how they got their hands on 2 with such LOW km?? Did they roll it back?

FYI, I emailed her on both ads, didn't get a response.

Not sure she still does...in one of the ads it mentions she lives on an acerage and the 370Z in the first ad looks like the pic was taken on an acerage...

That's what I thought at first too, but then noticed it's just click-bait.

Forgot to say, I checked House of Cars' inventory and they don't even have any 370Zs so I don't think she is working for them.

Since when is a 370z "rare" Maybe the touring package is a little more rare. 6,456 of the 11,208 produced were Touring. A NISMO version would be rare.

I sent a message to poke for information.
A. Its a rebuild with major frame problems.
B. Its a scam

That's what I want to know haha...what exactly is the scam if it's a scam?? The only thing I can think of is a rolled back/switched odometer...

Sometimes shitty car dealers put up imaginary cars just to get you to call, then that one is mysteriously unavailable but surprise, they have a dozen other rides to get you in.

The advertising laws say they are supposed to reference a specific stock number just so dealers can't pull that crap, but it still happens all the time. Also, I hate AMVIC with a passion, but you can use it to check if "Cars by Amerie" is a legit dealer/salesperson and report if you see any shady shit.

Dude, why are you so hung up on the km? they’re not that low for a summer car.

Also, they’re not rare at all.

If you’re interested then email from another address, set up a viewing and pay for a carproof followed by a potential inspection.

I worked with her all of her postings are attempts to lowball other sellers, they are in no way related to
House of cars, she's just trying to use them as leverage with other sellers.

And FYI red civic: none of the HOC cars have sketchy histories or write offs or rebuilds, car proof is free for all too see with the listings on website, you must be thinking gallery, and international
