Hi again,
I’m a flight.attendant for AmericanAirlines and because I’m away most of the time I will not be able to deal in person. Before leaving I had pre-arranged a deal with eBay so my presence is not necessary. The camper is in their possession ready to be delivered. eBay will handle this transaction for me. The total amount that you will pay is $1,500 with shipping and transfer fees included. You will receive the camper in max 48 hours and you will have the chance to inspect it for 5 days. The eBay.department will hold and insure your money throughout the inspection. If by any reason you find something you don’t like about the camper you can send it back at my expense and eBay will send you a full refund. I’m sure it won’t be the case because the camper is in excellent condition. It will come with all the necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual etc). You will receive all the original documents. I signed all the paperwork and the clear title is ready to be transferred to the new owner.

If you are interested in buying my camper please send me your full name, full shipping address and phone number so I can register the transaction with eBay and they will reply you with more details and information about this transaction.

Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!

So I try to look up her name and I get this website and OMG!!!!!!

Still waiting for pictures. Now I know what this truly is A SCAM! Wasn’t going to send money until I could confirm stuff with eBay They have my name and address hope that will not cause me trouble.

Another scammer

I came across a sweet deal on Craigslist for a low mileage 04 Honda Accord. They used the email [email protected] and wanted me to give $1500 through the “eBay Buyer protection program.” They said eBay would hold the money while my car was shipped to me, but didn’t offer me a link on eBay’s actual site for the car.

Hi again,

My name is Susan, I’m happy to see you are interested in my 1998 Harley Davidson. It has clear title, 14,050 miles 1340 cc. The engine is smooth, powerful and quiet. Transmission works good. NO accidents. The price was reduced at $1000 as I need to sell the bike at this price because my husband passed away not long ago (he was very sick) and this bike brings me bad memories and that’s the reason why I want to sell it asap. 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 arranged everything with eBay so my presence is not necessary. The deal includes free delivery and the bike will arrive at your address in 3 business days. You will have 5 days inspection period before I receive any money and if by any reason you find something you don’t like about, you can send it back on my expense and you will receive a full refund of your money. The bike is in their possession in Great Falls, MT sealed into a container and ready to be shipped to its new owner.

If you’re interested in purchasing the bike just email me with your full name, full address including the zip code and phone number, so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

$4700 for a 2011 Honda Civic:


My name is Dona, happy to see you are interested in my Honda Civic. Let me give you a few details about it. It’s in really good shape, never had any problems with it, drive train FWD, air conditioning, cruise control, power locks, power windows, power seats, no scratches or dents, non-smoker, 154.880 km, automatic transmission and the title is clear in my name. The car is in perfect condition. Don’t need to invest any money on it.

The price was reduced at $4,700. I’m selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan on 14th of May for 1 year contract and its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for 1 year so there’s no use on keeping it, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Hi Dona,

Thanks for emailing me back. In my text message I was wondering if you had kept up with the maintenance and if there was a spare set of tires if the tires were a summer and winter set. If the tires aren’t a summer / winter set could you estimate how much life they have on them and when you purchased them?

I would be interested in test driving the car with in the next couple days as my rental will be returned on Wednesday.


Hi again L,

It comes with 2 sets of tires: winter and summer. The summer set is in perfect condition, they only ran 2 months so they have a lot of life. And the winter set is good for another winter. I will do my best to walk you through the process. As I told you in my first email, my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan. Right now I’m in Whitehorse, Yukon. I am only allowed to check my email so we have to stick to email for now. I advertised it on other provinces also to get more exposure and sell it faster. The car is here with me at the base and the delivery process will be managed by me, ready to be delivered to its future new owner. The deal is handled by eBay SPP through their safe pay program so I don’t have much to do about it.

I think I can have it there at your home address in 3-5 days. In addition, you get 5 days to try it out before buying it, and if you don’t like it, you can send it back at my expense. For more info on how it works, I can ask eBay SPP to send you an email with more details on how to buy it. They will contact you shortly, as soon as I have your personal details. If you would like to receive the email from eBay SPP with all the transaction information, please provide me your whole name, complete address and phone # and they will contact you right away.

Please let me know.
Dona Vitte

I was actually so excited for a second.

The car is located at eBay warehouse in Nebraska headquarters, in the container, sealed and ready for shipping. Also the price is low $1500 because i want a fast deal, the car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories. Like i told, the car is in perfect condition with clear title, no liens or loans. All the documents including the title and the bill of sale with my signature on it, will come along with the car and it will take no more than 1-2 days to arrive at your address.

The transaction will be made thru eBay Motors because they can protect both of us and they also offer 5 days inspection period. You’ll have 5 days to inspect, test and drive the car before decided to keep it or not. If the vehicle is not like I described, you’ll ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. eBay will hold the funds until you receive the car with all the papers work. Only after you confirm them that you wanna keep the car they will release me the funds. In this way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it.
If you want to start the transaction with eBay just reply me with your full name, full shipping address, your phone number and email address then they will contact you with further instructions.

07 Ram SLT scam

Scam being done through offer up app. 07 F150
Email address in add is [email protected]
Name is corrected to Terry when this person responds

duffys021@ gmail scam

The scam being ran by [email protected] com is part of a network of thieves, there now using Gmail .com addresses without phone numbers on Craigslist “beware”, the value they placed on a car well below the value of the car, The scam is either that they are moving from one airbase to another,,,or get this! They say they have set this sale up for their sister and to use this gmail account to contact her…Then the story thickens,,it seems her husband just died and the car , truck , suv is leaving poor memories of her husband,,they’ve had to sell the house and move to another state to live with her sister,,but if you want the car, truck , suv you go through amazon, ebay , ect escrow that is setup and pay there and they will ship the vehicle and if you dont like it you `can return it which are included in the sale. (ok now think about, your buying a vehicle for 2,000 dollars and you live in Flagstaff AZ,,lowest cost to ship is
$ they have lost money on this sale and have pay the shipping company
for the return cost,, do think that makes good sense?) Always ask to see the vehicle,
always ask for the vehicle vin number,, run the carfax it will tell you if the vehicle is even about or near your state…dont fall for their scams
the funds and they’ll hold them till you receive the car, truck ,suv
