The vehicle never been in an accident, up to date maintenance, garage kept, nonsmoking. All what you have to do is start and drive.Clear title, no rust.The engine and transmission shifts and rides very smooth.All other power functions like Tinted windows. Leather Package, 5-Speed automatic, Gray w/Leather Seat Trim, ABS brakes, Compass, Electronic Stability Control, Front dual zone A/C, Heated door mirrors, Heated Front Bucket Seats, Heated front seats, Illuminated entry, Leather Seat Trim, Sunroof, Premium Package, Remote keyless entry, Remote keyless Entry System w/Alarm, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Traction control.55,472 original miles.

I am selling it at this price $1,500 because my husband died 2 weeks ago he had a heart attack and brings me back memories.
I decided to sell the house and I moved with my daughter and her husband in Omaha, (Nebraska). Trying to start a new life. The Santa Fe is here and is already and ready for delivery. My presence won’t be necessary because I prearranged the deal with eBay. The vehicle will be delivered in 2-3 days and the costs are covered. You have 5 days to get it checked out and take it to
a dealership or to a mechanic. If by any reason it is not as described or if you find any problems, I will pay for the returning fees.

In order to have this moving forward please reply with your complete name , shipping address street, zip code and your phone #.Please let me know if you’re interested.

Hi again,
I will do my best to walk you through the process. The vehicle is already at the shipping company, here in Omaha, Nebraska ready to be delivered to its future new owner. The deal is handled by eBay so I don’t have much to do about it. Using eBay`s Buyer Protection, you get free shipping, at your place in 2-3 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. The 5 days inspection period begin upon delivery at your location.
If you would like to receive the email from eBay with all the transaction information, please reply with your complete name, shipping address ( street, zip code ) and phone # and they will contact you right away.
Thank you

Hi
First, a few words about this 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 4WD LT-Edition (Z71 Off Road Package) is in perfect working condition, garage kept, with nothing mechanically wrong – like new! 
This truck has only 82,457 miles, used just to cruise. No accident history, clear title, no dents or dings and no scratches. 
Engine size: 5.3L 8 Cyl 
Transmission type:  Automatic, 
If you decide to buy it, you’ll receive all the papers, owner manual, keys, a buy-sell contract already signed by me and the clear title. I have a low price ($2500), because I want to sell it in the next 10 days. 
Reason for selling is that I am in US Army and my unit will be sent back oversea to replace and help the troops scheduled to come home this year, and I don’t want it get old in a storage garage for 18 months. 
This transaction will be made trough eBay Insurance. In this way you can receive assistance for shipping, titles transfer, etc. If you are interested to buy it, reply me back.
My truck is in a storage garage in Bend, OR and in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping process.
If you have any questions about the truck or if you want more photos please feel free to ask.
Looking forward to hear from you,

—————my reply:
First, thank you for your service. I am a veteran of the US Army.
We saw the posting and thought it was local. We are located in South Carolina near Myrtle Beach. We are very interested in buying the truck for our 18 year old son. What would the shipping process entail? You mentioned that you would take care of the shipping process, are you referring to paying the costs for shipping or just arranging the shipping?
We are very interested .
Steve Gause
————–his reply:
I think I can have it there at your home address within 3 working days. Right now I’m in a military base in Oregon National Guard, we are training, getting ready for deployment. 

Due to the fact that this is a large transaction I would like it be handled by eBay Insurance which allow you to get the truck first, benefit of 5 days inspection period and then I will get the payment. 

SO…ONLY AFTER you receive the truck and agree to keep it, eBay Insurance will release the payment to me, in this way we are both protected.

So, this is not a blind transaction, you can physically see the truck before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns. 

I need to know if you are still interested, so I can ask eBay Insurance to send you the details on this deal. 

If you are interested, please include in the next email your contact information for eBay Insurance (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can start the procedure:
————–my reply:
Yes, yes, yes!!! We want to start the process. The post on Craigslist is no longer there, when you get time please send a photo for our son to see. My info is:
**my personal info deleted
——————his reply:
At this point the truck is reserved for you. I have forwarded the transaction details to  eBay and they will contact us today with further steps to complete the transaction.
eBay will contact us with transaction details, invoice, payment instructions, also with shipping information.
Let me know when you have received the notification from them, and I will get the shipping arranged to be started.
As soon as eBay will receive the funds from you, they will approve the shipping process to be started to your address the same day.
——————-my reply:
Sounds great. I will be waiting for eBay to contact me. Thank you for your thoroughness and kindness.

Concession trailer scammers waiting for suckers

It always amazes me that people can be so gullible to think a concession trailer with all the accessories or quality trailer can be offered for about $2000. Where is your common sense? Don’t you do any research? Why would you send money to some unknown place without seeing the trailer? Most of these scammers offer free shipping. Don’t you realize shipping would be over that?

A quality well built and equipped trailer exceeds $40,000. How could you buy it for $2009?
These ads are placed by computer bots and are probably done in a group of scammers, perhaps Nigerian or Eastern European. They appear thousands of times all over the U.S. Flag them. Craig’s does NOTHING to police this. Also be aware of scammers for cars, trucks, ATCs, tickets, real estate and elecronics. Craig’s is useless for anything but face to face exchange.

I have a collection of about 40 photos of various concession trailers used in scam ads.

Hi again,

I’m a flight attendant for American Airlines 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!

2008 Mercedes Benz C 350 Sport

Melissa Brown email address [email protected] selling 2008 Mercedes c350 on craigslist. SCAM claiming uses Ebay buyer protection and ensures they will ship the car once payment is received. told seller I had a relative in the same city/state that they told they lived in and my relative would complete the transaction in person, but “Melissa” insisted on wiring the money and I could not, nor my relative could not, see the vehicle before purchase was made.

Avoid military/shipping scam USAF Staff Sgt. Amanda Hudson

I’m a single mom that had to quit my job because my company doubled our travel requirements & there was no way for me to manage being away from my little one for 2 weeks every month. I’m currently searching for a new opportunity. I’ve been bummed because we are living in a little lake house but we don’t have a boat & summer is coming.
Last night I found a beautiful pontoon boat on Craigslist for $2,500…figured it was a misprint and reached out for more info. I’m basically broke but just received a large tax return. So, I thought if this was for real I would risk it! I showed my son the picture of this beautiful 21ft red Bennington 2009 pontoon boat. He said, “Oh Mom, We HAVE to get that boat!!!” So I responded to the ad & also sent an email to the email address provided. [email protected]

She replied…

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my 2009 Sedonda Bennington 2075 with trailer. The reason I’m selling this boat way below market value, is because I’m serving in Offutt AFB, Nebraska but I was promoted and transferred to Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage Alaska for a 3 years period, so I don’t need it anymore at this time. I don’t want it get old in my garage, and I need to sell it before April 13th. The boat is in pristine condition, single outboard engine, clear title, no dents or dings. Always garaged, never abused or raced, 90 HP, gas fuel type and 21 feet. If you are interested, it’s still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is $2,500. Let me know if you are interested.

USAF Staff Sgt. Amanda Hudson

I was so excited! Military…sounds trustworthy… female…a little extra trustworthy…moving to Alaska…wants some quick cash…sure.
I was doubtful that someone in the military could afford to take a huge hit on a luxury item like a boat so I started researching what these were actually selling for…about $25k that’s suspicious! I looked up Amanda Hudson on Facebook & found no one in the service. I googled USAF Staff Sgt. Amanda Hudson and these scam warning sites came up!
I’m so disappointed! I really got my hopes up…that this was going to be a huge break for me! ?
I know…if it sounds to good to be true it is… luckily I was smart enough to do some digging…I would never have wired someone money without seeing the boat anyway.

I had already emailed her…/(The heartless theif” in some basement in Turkey somewhere running this huge scam operation)…back asking for pics of the inside & asking where the boat was so I could come see it.

This was the response…

Hi again,

As I’ve told you, at this moment I am in Offutt AFB, NE in a military base. I do a special training program each day, and we are not allowed to use phone line or get out of the unit, during training, otherwise I would have called you and seal the deal on phone. At the moment, email works best for me. The boat is already at our Offutt Air Force Base Library form Offutt AFB, NE sealed and ready to go. The delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address within 2-3 working days. It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the eBay buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask eBay to send you the details on this deal. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can get the ball rolling.

Thank you!

My questions…

1. Why is she advertising in Jackson, MI is she is in Nebraska?

2. I never have her my phone number why would she suggest she would have called.

3. What does ebay have to do with any of this?

What a heartless piece of crap!!!

Please avoid this military/shipping scam!!!!

Scam from [email protected]

You are receiving this e-mail because Amy Hanet, has selected eBay Buyer Protection to handle a secure online transaction with you. This was a scam that I was brought in to via Facebook on a vehicle buy sell trade site. I have done a lot of research on this and if you google the email address [email protected] you will get a hit from all over the US with the same scam. Nice car for sale and email my sister for details. She is going to sell me a 2008 Toyota Rav4 because her husband died and she moved to Boston. Same story with other versions. Today I got my invoice from “eBay Buyer Protection” telling me to buy 3 eBay cards for $500 each to pay for the car. This includes shipping. Please beware! If it’s too good to be true it is!
