    Hi all. Looks like I may have run into some tough times and listed my 03 terminator on Autotrader to see if I get any offers.

    I’m getting non stop emails about my price from some nutjob. Like every 15 minutes. My price is pretty reasonable for what I have. The emails are getting more and more aggressive. I have reported to auto trader but he is using fake email addresses.

    Have any of you run into this? Advice?

    I can’t even respond to the guy. He’s using the contact form on the site so it’s never his email address. He’s really posting some nasty, threatening comments. Non stop.

    Yes. That’s the one. That’s what I paid to land it here in Canada earlier this year. Exchange and shipping is a bitch. There is a coupe on there for the similar price and double the mileage. And a vert for more that’s been ridden hard. I am open to offers.

    Can you quote his comments? These cars are always so damn controversial on price, especially here in BC for some reason.

    If he is threatening you in a way that has you concerned for your safety, report him to the authorities. Maybe they can do something.

    This link (article) might help you. It's long, but good. Pay attention to the recommendations scattered throughout the article.

    Post some of the messages he's sending you. If they are threatening violence, call law enforcement and give his contact information to them.

    Did you tell him it's only a few thousand more than a coupe with 30k miles and in pieces?

    I would take $40k cdn. At bank exchange rate, that is $29k USD. Based on what I see advertised, it is pretty fair for one this nice.

    The emails are mostly immature. Homophobic slurs Etc No threats of violence yet.

    Once you have someone to buy it and you can remove it, it will be time to pay back.

    "Jesus man, fine, what do you want?"

    "I want you to sell it to me for $32k."

    "Ok fine. Where are you located?"

    Send him somewhere 100 miles away to look at the car that's "stored" in your buddy's shop. Then remove the post from autotrader.

    Ya that definitely sounds like someone from here emailing you ha. Just kidding, sorry that is happening to you. I wish I had some good advice but I havent ever dealt with this type of behavior when I've sold vehicles through autotrader.

    I've sold other things through something called offerup and get non stop lowball offers but nothing threatening. I concur you may want to contact the police if he doesn't stop harrassing you.

    Not driven too much. Hopefully I can get over this and just keep the car and meet up one day
