• At 9:04 a.m., a caller reported that he had advertised his vehicle in an Auto Trader and was called by a potential buyer, who offered $8,000 above the asking price. The buyer just wanted the vehicle shipped to him and for the seller to return the extra money from the shipping costs via Western Union. When a check arrived, the caller said, it did not look legitimate.
