scams are usually obvious as hell. Can usually spot them a mile away.

considering your a car dealer, that email seems to coincidental.

I'm guessing its probably genuine.

Still, regardless of whether it was or not, since the sender hasnt the balls to sign it or at least put a phone number, I would just delete it anyway.

If they are serious about contacting you, there's nothing to stop them picking up the phone or at the very least, outlining the issues and who the car buyer is, in the email they sent.

Personally, I wouldnt even waste my time replying to it. Hit delete.
