I can't log back in to the esgrow site. I might have to make another account. I'm still trying. Sorry for the delay, this company's website is just being annoying.

Sorry, there is a lot of info on the website. the email account name is DELETED. If you need more info to set it up, let me know.

I'm waiting for your reply, Mr Shin. The process is explained on the company's website. Mainly it goes like this: you send the money to the company for safekeeping. The car will be driven to your address by one of the company's agents. The agent will assist you during the 5-day inspection period. If you like the car you keep it and you release the money to me and the agent handles the title transfer, if you don't, you'll get all your money back. It will probably take around 3-4 days for the car to arrive at your address, from the moment the company verifies the payment.

After doing some research, I have decided that this esgrow company seems to eliminate most of the risk I was concerned about. The carfax report was also helpful. I am therefore willing to go ahead with this process. I might not be able to have the money to by tomorrow afternoon, but if I can't, I will have it to them by the next day. I have not registered with the esgrow company yet, but once I do, I will email you the required information along with any extaneous questions I might have.

Dear Mr Shin, I have signed up with and decided that they should handle the deal for me. I will have the car shipped at your address at my cost for inspection. So if you want to make the deal register at their site and send me the e-mail you have used for registration so I can start the transaction. The car will be driven by one of the company's agents to your address and assist you with the inspection. Also, during the inspection period you have the option to keep the car or return it if you don't like it, and have all your money back. So if you send the money to the company, let's say until tomorrow afternoon, I'll sell it to you for $3400. I'm waiting for your answer.
btw: here's the carfax report of the car: ... bDgDaCTSi3

Toronto is probably a little to far for me to travel
to pick up a car, even at that price. All risk
considered, I might not even make it back to LA from
there without a breakdown. Thank you for responding.

this same person almost scammed my family! but we figured it out just in time! our e-mails from this, "melvina" person, are practically the same, and the same car as well.

yes i know was shut down, i didn't know why but thank you. my mother actually went to western union to wire the money over to their "agent" Kelly Barrens, and then she came back home to go on the site and update her account and she couldn't access the site, and she thought it was our computer so she went next door to her friend's house and still the site was down, so that's when she figured out that it was a scam and right away called western union and put a block on the money.

Wow... close call. Glad to see that I was able to do some good. was quick in responding to my requests to have the site disabled. I think you are very fortunate to have had the right events happen in time to save you your money.
