ask him why it is and if he says he is selling his house, then ask to see his papers that he got when he signed with a realtor to sell it.

Dont do it .. Dont car transmissions usually go for over $1500 anyway.. $400 sounds like too good of a steal, or maybe it has problems

Homes that are for sale as fraudsters first choice for "drops" where they can send fraudulently obtained money/items.
