Scam Description

I received a message from the phone number provided above in response to an ad for a used vehicle for sale. The person contacting me reported being interested in purchasing the car I had listed for sale and requesting a specific vehicle history report from nationalreportsvin.com, while refusing to look at existing report from CarFax and NMVTIS. Concern for phishing to commit identity theft.
