Kawasaki Mule-$3000 on Craigslist

My 2007 Kawasaki Mule 3010 TRANS 4×4 is in perfect working condition, the exterior look like it just came off the assembly line. The atv has only 202 hours,clear title. This is the second time when I try to sell my atv…First time I tried eBay because every time I only use 100% safe methods and I’ve sent the atv through the eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection Program to a buyer from Florida. He paid the shipping and insurance costs and when eBay requested the full payment he refused to pay. Why? … because he agreed to purchase the atv in the first place, but typically didn’t had the necessary amount to do so. …

I’m an US Air Force Sgt. currently stationed in Rota Air Force Base from Barcelona,Spain in training, getting ready for Afghanistan. My brother from US works for DAS and he will take care by the shipping.

The atv and its documents are in the US at DAS auto shipping warehouse waiting to be delivered. My wife just gave birth to my forth kid, I need all the money I can get to leave to her. Also, I hope to sell the atv before we deploy to Afghanistan. The atv is fully paid for, fully functional, the title is clean and clear.
This is the email I got after inquiring about the ad:
The total price will be $3000 including shipping, insurance and ebay fees since have been paid the previous buyer.
It is very important for me to know if you have all the money to buy it or you need to get a loan for it. We will use eBay protection program for our safety and for payment I prefer to use an eBay Managed safety account.

Thank you

George & Anna Jefferson

PS:If you want more pictures,just let me know.

When I followed up with “where is the vehicle?”  I got the following:

Hello again,

First see the pics of the atv..just click or copy and paste in your new browser the following link:

A cash sell would have made my life easier, but I can’t leave my Military Base from Spain so the atv will be shipped by my brother who works for DAS from Havre,MT for free (the atv is ready for shipping because the loan of my previous buyer didn’t get approved) .The shipping will take 3-5 days, depending on your location. Shipping will be door to door,to your home address,somebody must be home when the atv arrives to sign for the reception.The atv will arrive with all the papers and documents required for registration and the keys. The clear title and the bill of sale will be already signed by me

The transaction will be made only trough eBay Managed trust account. eBay will be the third party that will hold the payment until you receive and inspect the atv.If the atv meets your expectations and you want to keep it you will have to tell them to release the payment to me…I think its a fair deal for both of us.

Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the atv and make sure everything is as agreed.

To set up the transaction through eBay,I need the following details:

1.Your full name.
2.Your full shipping address

I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible.

Thank you

    What email address was he using? I’ll add it to our database at TrustMe.com so our users won’t get fooled by this guy.

    he uses :
    georgejefferson67@msn.com

    he had a spot on craiglist in Bowling Green, Ky which I reported as scam, they removed the ad. but next day, another appeared in another town. Since I didn’t know of your site, I also reported him.
    As far as I could see, he puts his ad. in “appliances”
