I bought a Mercedes S600 on eBay from a private party. The guy went by the name of Anthony Gleason. We talked about the deal over several days to ensure that I was getting my monies worth and I was going to have the car in my name.
He asked for a deposit and said I would only have to pay the rest after I got the car. I never got the car and he took money from my account.
Big mistake. beware of buying from a private party.
