Glad I researched before I purchased. Camper was posted on ebay for sale. When I contacted her for more info, she told me she was an airline flight attendant for American Airlines and traveled a lot. Told me she got the camper in divorce settlement. Therefore, she would not be doing business in person. Ebay supposedly was holding the camper for shipment. Of course, I had to pay upfront but had 5 days after camper was delivered to request refund and ship camper back at her expense. Researched and found this is a common scam. She is using the name Evelin Thomas. Had 2 different email addresses. When I told her I didn’t feel comfortable with this type of transaction and needed to do some research, coincidentally the post was removed from Craigslist.
I HATE scammers and people who take advantage of others.

Hi, I have received your email regarding the 2004 Honda Accord with only 92,000 miles. The car is in perfect condition with clear title, no accidents, no liens or loans and it has just been completely serviced. The engine runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. The price for the car is $1,500(including delivery and handling to your address).
I’m selling this car because my child of only 26 years died 2 months ago in a bike accident, the car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it.
Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program, so if you’re interested in purchasing the car just reply me your full name, full address and phone number, so I can notify eBay. Once that is done, they will contact you in the next 24 hours to explain the entire procedure.

God Bless you and your family!
Currently I’m stationed in a military base in Tucson AZ. The vehicle is here with me but it can can be transported directly to your home address and you will have it for 7 days to see how it’s working before paying for it. The process is done through eBay for both our safety so all I need to start the transaction is your full name, address and phone number so that eBay can send you all the info.
Waiting for your reply,

My name is Diana, and I’m emailing you about Toyota Camry that I have for sale. It is a 09 model loaded with everything. Never had or need any paint/body work done, garaged keep always, without any mechanical problems, tires and wheels are in great shape as well, electric is working perfectly. The engine 2.4L runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. Has a clean and clear title in my name and there are no liens or loans on it.This car was used by my husband who died 4 month ago.The price was reduced at 2000 because I’m in a hurry to find a buyer. I need to sell the car before the 15th of the this month, when I will be leaving on military duty with my medical team back to Japan for a year and do not want to store my car. Hate to sell it but its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for a year.Right now I’m in a military base of Army National Guard in Bel Air,MD. The vehicle is here with me at the base and the delivery process will be managed by me Also, the car is too big for my daughter so there’s no use on keeping it. If you have any other questions, email me back.

I sent your details to eBay,you will receive the invoice in a few minutes.I will wait for you to make the payment to eBay so the shipping company can begin the shipping process because the car is already in their custody.When you`ll receive the 2002 BMW 330i you`ll have 5 days of inspection like i told you before and in case you won`t like it you can send it back on my cost and eBay will send all your money back.I will also send all the paperwork and a bill of sale which will be already signed and notarized onto your name.If you decide to keep it all your have to do is to sign the transfer papers and announce eBay to release the funds to me.
P.S.: This reminder may end up in your “Spam E-Mail” or “Bulk” mail folder, depending on your service and mail account settings.
Fake eBay account
Justin Paul is claiming to be selling an RV via the eBay VPP.
His email is: email@example.com
But he claims to also use firstname.lastname@example.org
In the first email he claimed to be active airforce. He tripped himself up as the 2nd email a few days later he became a retiree in Montanna too old to drive.
so when I found my dream truck for a low price I was sure that it was a scam but figured I would play along for a few emails.
This one after first contact goes into telling me that he has been transferred overseas and the DoD will ship me his truck for free. I was like ok sounds good. Send me the link and I will but it right now.
Needless to say the emailed link was not Ebay. And it is definitely points to a scam since the number has multiple scam reports against it.
This from craigslist in Charlotte NC.
Hi, my name is Dianne Sharp
My 2001 Toyota Tacoma SR5 4×4 never had or need any paint/body work done, garaged keep always, without any mechanical problems, tires and wheels are in great shape as well, electric is working perfectly. The engine is 3.4L V6, gasoline fuel, the automatic transmission shifts perfectly and the 4×4 works like new, the truck has only 82k miles. Has a clean and clear US title under my name and there are no liens or loans on it. I am selling it at this final price of $2,000 because my husband died 1 month ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason why I want to sell it asap. Me along with my daughter decided to sell the house and so we moved to my sister in Omaha,NE trying to start a new life.
I want to use eBay’s services for the safety of both of us so if you’re interested in purchasing this truck just email me with your full name, address including the zip code and phone number, so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
P.S.: Here you have pictures with the car
Thank you !
I noticed irregularities in the language used and found that this same language is used in other verified scams of the same type.
“garaged keep always, without any mechanical problems, tires and wheels are in great shape as well, electric is working perfectly.”
“Has a clean and clear US title under my name and there are no liens or loans on it.”
