This person responded by email to a Craigslist ad I posted for a vehicle.
Email 1 (from "Ray"):
Hello – Any accidents that you know of? Anything major? I have been having problems with messages going through here on Craigslist. If you can, send a message to me direct instead. I will leave my email below for you. Thanks!
My email: RayCook257(at)Gmail_com – (you’ll have to retype that to work)
Maybe check your spam folder too – I have seen some of the messages ending up in there for some reason. Thanks! Talk to you soon.

Email 2 (From "Ray"):
Do you have a current vehicle history report?
If not, I suggest getting one at this website: AutoAdviceBlog.com
The report is really inexpensive, only $19. Alot cheaper than a Carfax, which is $40. The report will show any major accidents, title issues, if it was stolen, if it was flooded, etc.
You will get a lot more interest providing a report up front. Basically, showing that there is nothing to hide with the vehicle to potential buyers. It definitely helps sell faster.
Let me know if this helps. Thank you.

He said his name was Ray and asked if I could hear him and I said yes and then he hung up. I think this was an attempt to use my voice saying yes to make purchases in my name.
