Received the following email after making inquiry about car. I immediately knew it was a scam, didn’t respond. She keeps emailing me the same thing, even though I have never responded.
2005 Honda Civic is in perfect condition, no accidents/liens/loans. No scratches, never been repainted. I have all the car manuals, title,documents. I’m selling this car because my child of only 18 died 4 months ago in a car accident,a drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiance’s car coming to our home at his little brother birthday of 9 years old. The unit belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it. I also got a new job and moved to another city, and many other things have priority now, so, this car has to go. The last price is $1800.  Very Important! If you are seriously interested in my car please reply back

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in buying my 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 SS. This vehicle has 90,846 miles and its a true pleasure to drive it. There are no leaks of any kind. Garage kept, rust free, pampered, and serviced, this vehicle could not be nicer. The powerful V8, 6.0 engine moves this vehicle with ease and the power is delivered through a smooth automatic transmission. This car is turn key ready to go. Not interested in a trade and my final price is $3.500.

I’m serving in Offutt AFB, Nebraska but I was promoted and transferred to Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage Alaska for a 3 years period, so I don’t need it anymore at this time. The vehicle is already crated and sealed in eBay’s storage facility number 11 in Omaha, Nebraska and the shipping process will be handled by them. The shipping costs are already paid off so you won’t have to pay any extra charges for it. The entire shipping process will take around 4 days. The financial part will also be managed by eBay, which means that you will have a 5 days inspection period before committing to buy it. In this way both, buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. If you agree with my bottom price and you are interested to conclude this purchase, please email me back and I’ll gladly provide you more info on how it works. Also, I’ve attached you some more pictures with the truck in this email.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thanks,

Too good to be true posting of car for sale on Milwaukee’s Craig’s List: Honda Accord 2003. Here’s the reply I got when I emailed Brenda Carlson about the car:

“The car is in perfect shape, never been smoked in, without scratches nor dents, and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents. I legally own, free of any liens or loans,under my name. It has 74,836 miles, for sale at $1,500. I’m selling the car because I lost my husband and my child of only 19 years, with 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk truck driver hit them. They were in my husband’s car and they didn’t had a chance. This was my child’s car and brings me a lot of memories that make me suffer and this is the reason for what I want to sell it as soon as possible. If you have any other questions, or need more info, please free to ask.

Thank you for your interest,

Posted on Denver Craigslist 7-27-14. It’s been removed now, but did get the number as only means of contacting this tool.

Hi, thanks for getting back to me.
My car is now at the shipping company warehouse sealed in a cargo container ready to ship and i want to use ebay’s services for this transaction as it is the safest for both of us.
Let me explain how it works: First of all I will need your full name and shipping address so I can register the transaction with ebay. once you receive the details from ebay, the car will be reserved for you until you read the details and decide if you want to proceed or not. You will have a five days inspection period, after the car arrives at your address to make sure it is as shown in the photos and in good working order.If by any reason the car is not as described or if you find any problems with it, I will arrange to ship it back on my cost.The payment will be sent to ebay and they will hold it until the inspection period is over and you decide 2003 Honda Accord is in a perfect condition, no accidents | liens| loans.No scratches, never been repainted.I have all the car manuals, title,documents.I’m selling this car because my child of only 18 died 3 months ago in a car accident,a drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiance’s car coming to our home at his little brother birthday of 8 years old. The unit belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it. The last price is $2,000 and the Mileage is : 74,293.I also got a new job and moved to another city, and many other things have priority now, so, this car has to go.
Very Important! If you are seriously interested in my car please reply back here
if you’re going to buy it or not.

This way you’re not going to pay for something you haven’t seen and with the inspection period you can make sure it’s as described. If you agree with this terms please reply with your full name and shipping address so we can get the ball rolling.
Keep me posted

Thank you for contacting me about my 2004 Toyota Corolla LE. The car is in great shape with 59k mileage, it’s automatic with 1.8L L4 EFI engine. I’m the second owner, it was never been involved in accidents and has clear title.
I am selling it for 1,500$ because my husband died 1 month ago (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories. Along with my daughter we decided to sell the house and moved to my brother in Maine, trying to start a new life.
I want to use eBay services, 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.

Thanks!

Hi Al,

This is Kim, I am glad you are one of the people interested in buying my 2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L. Let me give you a few details about it: very good shape, no mechanical issues, no scratches or dents, easy on maintenance costs, extremely reliable and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents. Has only 82,408 miles, its automatic, with an 6 Cyl 3.5L engine, white exterior/tan leather interior. I have a clear title, free of any liens or loans on it, under my name. Because of my divorce settlement, I own it and as a woman I won’t need it so I’m trying to get rid of it as soon as possible, that’s why the price was reduced at $2,500.

Here you can find the pictures: http://imgur.com/a/zKyCJ

If you are interested in buying it or if you have any questions, please reply to this email.

Sincerely,

Kim

Dear Al,

I am very glad to hear back from you. I’m a flight attendant at American Airlines and because I’m away most of the time I will not be able to deal in person. Before leaving I had pre-arranged the deal with eBay Buyer Protection program so my presence is not necessary. The van is located in Omaha,NE in eBay`s custody at their shipping company in a cargo container, ready to be delivered to its hopefully future new owner. With eBay, you get free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2 to 3 days. In addition, you will have 5 days to try out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don’t like about it you can send it back at my expense. I want to make it very clear, that eBay will hold your money, and I won’t be receiving a single dollar unless you call and tell them to release the money to me.

If you are ready to buy it, please reply with your whole name, address and phone # so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my buyer, and they will contact you right away.

Looking forward hearing from you.

Kim
