Default Anyone from the Roselle, IL area?

If so any idea if 847-997-XXXX is in that area?

Search says it's a cell number but when I called I got a fax machine.

Had a guy emailing me on my boat. Sounded like it might be a scam because his English was poor and broken. The number from the email was a 847-997 number.

I actually talked to him just a few minutes ago and the whole thing is just "weird". I've bought and sold a few things in my life and never dealt with anything like this.

If the listed number is a fax.....scam. Just called one from autotrader like that last week. They probably wanted to do the transaction through an ebay account deal I bet.

Nope he didn't ask for online transactions. I've had plenty of the "I'll be sending you too much money" scam offers over the years!
