    I recently listed my M2 on the club classifieds. This morning I received a text message expressing interest in my car and asking for my email. I thought that was odd but giving out an email that I use for specifically e-commerce was harmless enough.

    Within an hour or so, I received an email with a lame story asking me to sign up for a CarFax like report at this URL:


    I have't bothered to visit the site. Do so at your own risk.

    I did do a quick search on the URL and found this article:

    I replied to the "interested party" with the link to the article. No reply.

    Apparently the scammer has a club membership. Because this is the only car listing site that has my phone number visible, and it is visible only to members, correct?

    Beware of text messages from this number: +1 801 658 2227 and this email: jessica.russell78@protonmail.com
