Sounds shady to me. I wouldn't purchase a car like that. I don't think you could get the money back

I hope you're joking. This is not walmart. If you bought the car face to face, you couldn't get your money back. Buying it sight unseen, with a shipper, is just a gamble. You will not get the money back if you don't like it. Take some responsibility if you buy this car. It's yours when it leaves Alaska.

Don't do it. There's way too many problems with that, so many opportunities for the purchase to go wrong its too risky. I would never buy a car i couldn't inspect in person and test drive.

I would never buy a vehicle sight unseen. I think you could very easily get ripped off.

This is a SCAM. Yahoo doesn't hold or transfer money.If you send your money you will lose it because you cant get it back. No it is not safe. He probably doesn't own the car ...This is a SCAM stay away,Yahoo doesn't have accounts to distribute money............UJN
