Shipping + Escrow Company

Looking at a car listed in Miami. The typical this was my Dad’s car and I don’t have any place to keep it.

Seller wants to use a shipping/escrow company called Prestige Auto Transport which has a website at Prestige-Auto-Trans. com. They list their address as 80 SW 8th Street Miami Florida which is a high rise in downtown. No phone numbers. They also list offices in ireland and Germany. There aren’t any phone numbers.

Scam?

I would say scam, yes. Offer a different escrow company and see the sellers reaction. If they are not open to that, I would walk.

Well, I found a legitimate inspection company that would has experience with classic cars and would do it for 300 bucks, told the “seller” to set a time for the inspection and haven’t heard from him since.

Go figure.
