2007 Spirit American 4H Sierra 12’LQ $4800- on equinenow.com

This is a reply to my inquiry on an ad posted on equinenow.com for a too-good-to-be-true deal on a horse trailer

Hello there,The trailer is still for sale and is in excellent condition as you can see from the pictures, looks brand new, never had a horse in it, no dents, dings, scrapes or scuffs very nice trailer, tires look new, you will love this trailer…
If you are interested in buying it, the price is $4,800 and this is with shipping costs to your location included. I sell the trailer at this price because I cannot enjoy it due to my job(I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship) and I’m a single woman and I have nobody close who can use it. This trailer was used by my ex husband who died two years ago.
All documents, including owner’s manual, clear title and a bill of sale on your name will be provided along with the trailer.
Also about payment and shipping I will use only eBay vehicle protection program so we can both be protected. I am looking forward to hear from you.

PS: If you want to see again the ad: www.horsetrailer.host22.com/

Thank you,
Catherine Madison

Here is a 2nd email from her, after I requested that she list the item on ebay so it would be eligible for ebay protection.  There was no photo attached.:

Hi again,

First of all I have to tell you that I can’t use the phone due the casino policy. Here on the cruise ship, the dealers have prohibited to use the phone.It was listed on eBay and apply for eBay Policy but my ad expired.The trailer is already at the shipping company in San Diego, CA ready for the shipping.The shipping process will take between 4 -7 days, depending on your location. I have a contract with eBay so this deal must go through them.
  As I said in the first email I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship and I can’t meet you or bring you the trailer, so that’s why I am using a shipping company.
  Since this is an online transaction I wanted the both of us to be safe so for this deal I am using eBay Purchase Protection, and that means that you have 5 days from the time you receive the trailer to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.
Here is how it works:
1.First of all I will need  the following details from you:
    – Full Name
    – Full Shipping Address
2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to eBay Purchase Protection.
3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices.Your will make the payment to eBay and the funds will be 100% insured by eBay Purchase Protection.
4. eBay Purchase Protection will contact me and I will ship the trailer to you. After you receive the trailer you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the trailer.If you will buy it, then I will receive the payment from eBay.Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the trailer and make sure everything is as agreed.
5. If you will decide that you will not buy it,eBay will refund you and I will have the shipping company come pick up my trailer.
If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed.

PS: I attached you a pic with the VIN.The title and the other documents are created at the shipping company and you will receive it along with the trailer.

Thank you,
Catherine Madison

    This one almost had me, but something told me to dig a little deeper. I was wondering why someone would sell a $62,000 horse trailer for $4800.When it don’t sound right dig &dig. More and likely you will find its a scam. I don’t know why people can’t be honest. People work hard for their money just for some thief to try to scam them. Sorry for them they did’t get me!! This person sent me the 2 same exact e-mails and then 2 or 3 more. Listed in Dallas, TX but when I asked her to travel out to see the trailer from Florida at my expense & my husband & I would transport it back ourselves if we bought it, the trailer was then in San Diego, CA at ebay’s shipping company. I have seen several horse trailers for sale by someone who claims to be a casino dealer on a cruise ship just in the last couple of days. Honestly how many people work on ships that are selling horse trailers? Be careful out there!!!!
