Asking for car history when buying a vehicle

Often, fraudsters will attempt to organize a transaction that is not face-to-face. The following is an example of a common reply you might receive from buyer(s) or scammers:

(Initial contact) “Hi, thank you for your posting this ad. I like the car and also it looks great. I am also ok with the price so I will proceed with my bank loan. Just, I will have to see the car and if you don’t mind, I will also bring my wife & daughter with me so they will see it too. I will pay you cash after I will inspect the car. Could you please tell me that do you have all the service docs? And also tell me that you have all the papers for the sale? The bank will require the car history so they will approve my loan. Please reply and tell me if you have it, if not tell me so I will give info how to get it.” Etc.

 (kind of Follow Up) “Hi, my bank is asking for the car history with the seller name on it. Please go here and get it This service will cost you some amount. Don’t worry, I can refund you when we will meet. You can get it even from a car dealer if you don’t want to pay for it online. Any of that reports are good but I will only refund you the amount of that you pay on the site I sent you, because i have found the cheapest and trusted one. Once you will have it please save it as pdf and send it to me so I will forward it to my bank. I will be able to meet you within 48h after that, so please also tell me when you can show the car.”
