Ship it from where, Nigeria?

If you go any further with this you are begging to get ripped off.

If you think a 2000's BMW is only going to cost that little, you're better off not getting one at all - you probably won't be able to maintain it.

They'll say they'll ship it to you and you'll have 5-10 days to inspect it and ship it back if you want, at their cost. Then they'll go onto something along the lines of using PayPal. Afterwards they'll say that you have to wire around $2k via Western Union because their "agent" needs an agent commission fee in order to be able to schedule a pick-up time. Finally, they'll ask you to verify with PayPal to finalize the Western Union transfer.

This sounds a lot like the "Used Car Shipping" scam.
Heres a basic description of it:

Seriously these scams aren't new, they've been around for years. Nobody sells cars like this for dirt cheap, and nobody lists cars in a Texas craigslist, when they "just recently moved to North Dakota" etc.

I suppose I buy more cars from craigslist, auto trader, etc. than the average person, but its pretty common knowledge, If it sounds too good to be true, It is.
