Toyota Sienna XLE 2000 van for $2750 on Craigslist

Earlier today I found 4 ads for this one. That’s not a lot of ads but they were in Denver, Nashville, Providence, and Reno – which aren’t close to each other at all. There was no email given but CL’s standard “reply to” was turned on so I sent a message asking about the mileage. Here is the reply I got:

“Hi, here is some more info.
I am selling this car because my platoon has been sent back to Afghanistan and don’t want it get old in my backyard. The price is low because I need to sell it before 08th of april. It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn’t been involved in any accident.I do have the title , clear, under my name.The car has 81,355 miles,year is 2000 and VIN is 4t3zf13c1yu273795.It is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $2750. The car is in Great Falls, MT, in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back.
Thanks”

Of course I answered the Denver ad because that’s where I live. Now suddenly the car is in Montana? And the seller is going to Afghanistan? And he’ll cover shipping? Yeah right. SCAM.

But at least now I have the email address so I can tell you all about it. It’s

lisseth44@gmail.com

Now I’m off to report it to Craigslist. If you happen to be in Providence, Reno, or Nashville and you come across this ad, feel free to flag it :). And if you see this email address – avoid it. Thanks.

    “Hi, here is some more info.
    I am selling this car because my platoon has been sent back to Afghanistan and I don’t want it to get old in my backyard. The price is low because I need to sell it before 30th of Aug. It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn’t been involved in any accident..I do have the title , clear, under my name. The car has 20,000 miles, year 2004 and VIN 4T1BF32KX4U066086 .It is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $4500.

    “As I’ve told you , I am in Great Falls, MT in a military base getting ready for Afghanistan. I do a special training program each day and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or give calls whenever I want. The shipping wont be a problem and I will do it at no cost to you because it will be made by the army and will take 4 to 5 working days. You will receive the car along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, full service records and more. Because it is a large transaction we will complete the deal using an authorized third party like eBay, using their Business Purchase Protection Program .The payment will be handled by eBay and you will benefit of the 5 day inspection time period and the option to accept or reject the car on my expense. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address.
    I will forward your info and they will notify you about our deal.
    Hope to hear from you soon”

    May be Jesus should come back to punish these people.

    Thanks for taking a part of your time and visiting my ad 2003 Honda Accord EX – $2,450
    I am selling this car because my squadron has been sent back to Afghanistan and don’t want it get old in my backyard. The price is low because I need to sell it before 14th of February. This car is in excellent working conditions, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title.The car has 90,000 miles.This car may be purchased with money back guarantee.In summary you are permitted to buy and drive this car for 5 days or 500 miles. If you don’t want the car, you can return it to me for a full money refund!From the begining you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services.
    It is simple and is great for both parties so that any lack of trust is eliminated.I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon.

    Have a better than expected day!
