I really really need an adivce on this matter, i wanted to buy this van, which i found on gumtre. Its really a good reasonable price. I emailed them to get in touch see if i could view the van and so on. Recieved reply saying he is out of the country and would close the deal with me using a safe method which is using MONEY GRAM.

return it and get your money back instead of releasing the payment to me.
You can go to your mechanic for inspection to confirm you that the car
is OK and to Police so they can tell you that the car it's not stolen
or something like that.
