2003 Chevrolet Tahoe on Craigslist
I noticed a listing under Columbus Ohio for a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe for only $2,850. The pictures looked fantastic and since there was no phone number, I emailed the address on the ad which was email@example.com
I received the following response back to my email yet it was from:
Jenny Haxe <firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Jenny Haxe, I am emailing you regarding the 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LT that I have for sale.
The car is in perfect condition , with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (NO SMOKING). It has 120.000 miles ,automatic transmission. I have a clear and clean title for it , no liens or loans ready to be signed and notarized on your name.
I'm selling my son's car , who died in Iraq two months ago and I want to get rid of it asap because the sight of it makes me think of him often and often and the pain is too great . Put yourself in my shoes and you'll do the same (selling the car of your dead son, no offense) !!!
As you probably noticed , the final price that i want for this car is $2850 if you will buy it today or tomorrow.
Let me know where are you located and any other details you need about it.
So I emailed her back asking where in Columbus she was so that we could see this vehicle and I got back the following from "Jenny Haxe"
I`m located in Great Falls,MT (the car is here with me) right now because i got a new job here,the thing is i`m very busy and i don`t have time to stay and meet with all my potential buyers, that is why i gave to a shipping company that will ship it to the next owner(on my cost). I will make the deal only to eBay. I am a member of the eBay buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested in buying it so I can ask eBay to send you the details on how this works. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay ( full name, full address and phone # ) so we can get things started.
Thanks and have a great day !
I quickly did some research and found your site and so thankful for all of the folks coming forward to stop fraud. I emailed "Jenny" back, told her that I found her to be a fraud, that I was going to report "her" as much as I could, etc. I then noticed that shortly thereafter, I can't find that Tahoe anywhere on Craig's List!!! Thanks so much for providing all of the information that you do to help others not get fooled by these frauds.
