Would-be buyer of Mini Cooper complies with terms but doesn’t get car

A Jasper Parrish Drive man who attempted to buy a Mini Cooper car off Craigslist reported that he spent $3,000 but has not received the car, police said Friday.

The man reported that he was instructed to buy six $500 gift cards and send the cards’ information to a toll-free number in order to buy the 2005 car.

He did that, but although he and his daughter both texted a woman named Andrea at a phone number with a Salt Lake City area code, they have not received any information showing that the car has been shipped, police said.
