Need some help here because my scam radar is going off. I have a previous post(http://www.stationwagonforums.com/f...idea-to-find-a-wagon-input-appreciated.52774/) explaining my search for a wagon for an upcoming family reunion next summer. A few weeks ago I found a listing for a 1973 Chevrolet Caprice Estate, almost identical to the Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser my family had when I was a kid. It looks to be in great shape. I sent a request for more details to the seller through the listing's website. The seller wrote back explaining he is currently overseas (red flag #1) and he has left the vehicle with a shipper who is handling the transaction: Proceed Shipping, Ltd. My research shows that they are a UK-based company but have a location in Seattle, which is where the car is currently located, according to the seller. The ad said it was located in Hartford, CT, (i.e. closer to me in Philly so I could at least drive up there to take a look) but the seller said he had a buyer in Seattle who backed out of the deal, so that's where the car is now, ready to be shipped. (Red flag #2.) The shipping company's website is http://proceed-shipping.com/. There is NOT a lot of info to be found through Google on this company (red flag #3) but the website looks legit. Apparently they handle international vehicle sales and transportation and use an escrow until the buyer receives the car, has a chance to inspect it and approves the vehicle condition. This process is outlined on their website. If I don't approve, the car gets shipped back and I get my money back. I asked if it is possible to view the vehicle prior to the sale. Here was the response: Unfortunately, we cannot arrange pre-inspection because in Seattle, WA is only a transit warehouse without any packing, cleaning or sealing materials. The vehicle has passed the inspection and now is inside a 20ft dedicated container sealed and ready to be shipped. There is nobody there to deal with the transaction. VEHICLE INSPECTION REPORT - SUMMARY This vehicle passes Proceed's inspection. An owner's manual and spare key are included. Encumbrance status - No encumbrance reported. Written off status - No written off incidents reported. Odometer reading - No odometer rollback reported. Stolen status - No record of vehicle as stolen. Cosmetic Condition - No flaws above normal wear were found. Your vehicle will be moved using a specialty shipping system designed and tested to protect against damage and wear. Our drivers provide detailed inspection reports to the shipper and recipient with each move. We hope this helps with your planning and please do let us know if you would like any further details. I've been communicating with them only via email, so I wrote back to request a phone number to talk with the company rep, stating that I am hesitant to make a major purchase like this sight-unseen and without actually talking to a live person. I will admit that the email communications all seem professional, even with my heightened skepticism. But I am surprised that they would pay to ship the car to me, across the country, and I then have the option to return it at no cost to me if I don't like it. Here are the pictures the seller has sent me. So my questions: Has anyone on this forum seen this car before? Or know anything about Proceed Shipping, Ltd? Does this seem legitimate, or a carefully-crafted scam?
