Type of a scam Online Purchase

This person above contacted me by phone, then started messaging about a vehicle I have for sale in Craig's list.

She sent me official VIN website and her email to send report.

I paid 20.00 for the report and sent it to her.

Did not hear back and no response to calls or emails so I got suspicious.

Was selling a car on and got a call - asking if still available - and then cut off immediately. couldn't get through when trying to call back. then they texted saying "can't talk right now" - which is weird since they called ME. and then wanted a VIN check of car through this site "" which goes to which charges $19.99 for check on vin - but then they get your credit card details.

Buyer on craigslist wants you to look up VIN and have you email it to them, since my vin came up with no history when other sites give the history, I said that it wasn't coming up and the person kept saying that they will wait for the report when I said that it doesn't work.

My experience was identical to that found in the comments of this webpage:

I advertised my car for sale on my local Craigslist. I received a missed call from 1-223-50. Immediately afterward, 727-605-9615 contacted me via text. In short, it asked me to use to get a VIN check and email it to [email protected] I tried to deflect, and the next message told me to use to do the VIN check. Both "sites" are redirects to (and are blocked by my organization, which is great!). I'm glad I found the report to understand what was happening.
