Also, regarding them phishing... it's not likely, but it does happen. Again, the industry is pretty hectic and the margins can be small for dealers. They may have to move insane number of units each month, and the listings could be about to expire or someone missed updating them. If you emailed about an f150 and they sold it then they probably have some more coming right in due to the popularity of the car. The car you asked about may be at a paint shop getting a bumper sprayed, or at the detail guy getting work done or dents removed.
Don't assume. Just call.
