If something is too good to be true, it usually is. Watch out for Sofia Curtis selling a 2006 Jayco RV/Camper for next to nothing. The camper is apparently in Nebraska. They also try using the death of a family member and “I’m in the military” to bait you. Pathetic. Her email is: email@example.com.

Thanks for getting back to me! As stated before the car is still registered to United States. The car is already at a shipping company prepared for transport with all registration documents, service records, both car keys and the original invoice.
If you are interested in purchasing i want to use a third party for our protection in this case eBay VPP Protection Program Using their services it allows you as the buyer to receive the car first and also give you an inspection period of 7 days in which you can decline the sale if you are not satisfied. I doubt that since the car is in perfect condition.
The shipping will be home delivery and insured.
Let me know if you agree and wish to move forward and if so please get back to me with your credentials as entire name, phone number and shipping address so i can open the transaction with eBay and. they will notify you with all the details (how the transaction will take place, how you are covered and payment options)
PS: Please keep in mind that once the vehicle has been shipped you will have 7 days to inspect it, test drive it and take it to your mechanic and decide.
If by chance the car does not suit your needs and decide to decline the sale i will have the shipping company come and take the car back at no cost for you and ship it to the next buyer.

I’m replying you regarding the 1993 Toyota Winnebago Warrior that I have for sale. The condition of the rv is excellent, no mechanical problems, very well maintained, never wrecked or involved in an accident, title clear,legally under my name, 117,689 miles, V6 engine, 20 feet long, 4 person sleeping capacity, 2 AC, functional generator, no leaks and you can find the pics attached.
I am selling it for $2,000. Because of my divorce settlement, I own this rv and I don`t need it, so I’m trying to sell it asap. I gave the motorhome to eBay shipping company in Oklahoma City who will deliver it to the next owner. The transaction will be made through eBay Payments for our own safety. The best part about this is that you’ll get 5 days of inspection and shipping for free. If you’re interested in purchasing it just e-mail me your full name and shipping address so I can initiate the deal through eBay and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

Hello thank you very much for contacting me regarding my 2006 Honda Civic LX. This car is in a very good condition and runs very well and the car has never been involve in any accident. The title is clear.it is not a salvage one.interior and exterior looks great. The mileage is 114,707 and body style is sedan with an automatic transmission.The car is like a new one, in perfect conditions, no special marks, no need for additional repairs what so ever. a genuine road runner. The car is in excellent working condition, no scratches, no flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking condition. No accident record and comes with a clear title..This machine is just like a new one and i promise you that you will enjoy the car if you can pay that price as soon as possible.
The price of the car is $2100. I’ll try not to explain all the reasons why I’m selling my car at this price. I’m selling the car at this price because I just finished a divorce with my Wife because of a cheating incident with my fellow friend so i couldn’t stay in USA with such a shame and disgrace .So decided to move to Canada for my new job and my company here have already offered me a brand New Jeep as my service car and i have also bought a 2012 Toyota Camry as my personal car. I left the car with Diamond Auto Movers shipping Company in USA because my date line at work was due.Diamond Auto Movers(DAM) is ready to deliver the car any where and they are also an escrow service company that will help me sell the car to any customer interested in buying it. The price of the car is $2100 which includes all the delivery costs. The payment will be done to Diamond Auto Movers. You will make a deposit of 50% of the car price to Diamond Auto Movers and they will hold the money and ship the car to you.When you receive the car, you have 14 days to test drive the car and if you are satisfy with the car, you complete the balance to Diamond Auto Movers so that they can release the payment to me. But if by any reason you are not satisfy with the car after the 14 days inspection period, you can return the car to Diamond Auto Movers and they will refund your money without any problem.But I know you will not have any reason to return the car because it’s exactly as described in the picture you saw in the advertisement. The 50% down payment is refundable, and is just a security measure, to make sure that you are a serious buyer.
If you want more pictures i will send them to you and the pictures where taken when preparing the car for sale so they are current pictures.So Please, if you are really serious in buying the car and want to complete this transaction with me,kindly email me your delivery address such as your full names, home address,state.city,zip code and phone number let me forward it to Diamond Auto Movers (DAM) and they will contact you with more information regarding the delivery of the car and also with the information to send the deposit to them.

This site is written by a college kid that needs to go to B-school. I went to college in San Diego which, as a whole, is a predominantly Military community. I, too, sold a car on eBay. I honored a low final bid on my no reserve auction although I should have just kept it. I didn’t care then and could care less ten years later about my “10” rating or ranking or whatever insignificant name it’s given. I sweetened my highest bidder’s prospects by offering only 200 miles free towing since I knew I could finesse it for free with my AAA card. My low bidder winner ended up being an out of town bidder, and got his car the night the money hit my PayPal. I didn’t hear about the eBay Motors’ version of eBay’s original buyer protection coverage until eBay called and said I didn’t respond to an email allowing eBay to fix the car that this old man blew up in two days. At first I them both to shove it since the car was my dad’s before it was mine, and ran and drove everytime it was started for years until the evening it was shipped to the buyer 150 miles away. I continued to contest the buyers’ crap shoot and eBays fraud, even when I was coached by the warranty representative, or whatever igsignificant title those boast, to just play along at no risk of civil financial penalty. Win-Place-eBay loses. I didnt care to leave this man car-less, so I ignored eBay. Everything about the ridiculous supposed scam dreamnt by someone smarter than you was a common scenario of a legitimate auction. I could not make up a story this coincidentally similar, down to the car coming from a military town and the coverage easily and always covering the car. This buyer, as any other can, finessed a luxury car and lied and said it was recieved needing the free eBay engine (installed). If your going to sell fear, write a false story as believable as this one. Details, not lame stories and an email address supposedly derived from cat devotion and an unlikely nickname. eBay didnt even ding me, and bought an out of state buyer a new engine for a car that ran. A stated shady number for which I searched brought me here. I’m torn. The numbers are an insult. If the email addresses displayed are simply supposed to represent even a small and consecutive selection from a larger list, they still do not convince a reasonably intelligent person that at least the ‘names have been changed to protect the innocent.’ All those Amy’s would have found something more unique to use once realizing their emails would be 99& identical to countless other(Amy’)s. These are supposedly just (some of) the Amy’s that scanned somebody and has a 10+ character email with one unique digit. Anyone continuing to scam under the same first name would at least be smart enough to switch up login names.
Beware of Seller Mary Reynolds firstname.lastname@example.org trying to sell a $13000.00 Tahoe for $2000.00 and will pay shipping to you after you have released pin codes for pay pal cash cards.
Email used by the scammer – Emily Loch<email@example.com>
I sent an email to an ad in a classified for a used Honda Accord. This is what I got in return.
My name is Emily, I’m the original owner. It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn’t been involved in any accident. Non-smoker. 2007 Honda Accord, automatic transmission with only 78k miles ,Engine 3.0L V6 ,Transmission Automatic. I am selling this car because I am in the military and my unit will be sent back to Iraq. I don’t want it get old in my garage. Also, the car is too big for my daughter so there’s no use on keeping it. The price is low because I need to sell it before June 05th. Always adult driven and garaged, never abused or raced. If you are interested, it’s still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is ($ 2,500 shipping free).

After I asked some questions, another email came through.
Right now I’m in a military base. We are training, getting ready for Iraq. I am only allowed to check my email several time a day. We have to stick to e-mail for now. Hope you can understand. The car is already at our Military Logistic Department form Fort Belvoir, U.S. Army base crated and ready to go. Like I already said, the delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address within 2-3 working days. It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the eBay buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask eBay to send you the details on this deal. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can move forward with this transaction.
Craigslist posts with the e-mail address francisruiz254 (@) (g-m-a-i-l) (d-o-t) (c-o-m) are now answered by Betty Lois with return e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. I guess that the e-mail address should be add to the list but I am new at it and do not know how to do it.
These phone numbers, email addresses and web sites have been included in fake casual sex ads on Craigslist by nasty foreign criminal gangs, who will victimize anyone who replies to these numbers and email addresses/web sites. AVOID!
