Hi, I have received your email regarding the 2004 Acura TL with only 91,000 miles. The vehicle is in perfect condition with clear title, no accidents, no liens or loans and it has just been completely serviced. The engine runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. The price for the vehicle is $1,500(including delivery and handling to your address).
I’m selling this vehicle because my child of only 26 years died 2 months ago in a bike accident, the vehicle belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it.
Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program, so if you’re interested in purchasing the vehicle just reply me your full name, full address and phone number, so I can notify eBay Motors. Once that is done, they will contact you in the next hours to explain the entire procedure.

Hi again,
The vehicle is located at eBay Motors storage in Farmington MO,in the container,sealed and ready for shipping.Like i told,I travel a lot and I prepared the sale thru eBay Motors Buyer Protection.All you will have to pay for the vehicle is only my price $1500 no other fees(delivery is already prepared and paid by me).The vehicle will come with all the necessary papers notarized to pass at your name (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, insurance etc) and will take no more than 2-3 days.
You will have 5 days for inspection.During all this time eBay Motors will keep safe the money into a trust account.So, this is not a blind transaction,you can see the vehicle before decide to buy it.If you are satisfied with the vehicle and decide to keep it you inform eBay Motors about this and they will release the money to me.If the vehicle is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay Motors will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the vehicle will be my concern. But I don’t think that this will be necessary because the vehicle is like in the pictures and how I described it, i assure that you will love this vehicle.
Thank you for the info Keone ,i will contact eBay Motors and i will proceed the deal.You will receive a notification from them with all the steps you need to follow to complete the deal. E-mail me when you will receive the notification from eBay Motors.

Thank you.

Hi,

We have a low price on our 2007 Honda Civic because we want to sell the car asap. The price is $1500 including delivery to your home address. The car is in perfect condition, no electric problems, no accidents/liens/loans. The odometer shows 95,500 miles. Never been repainted. We have all the car manuals, title, documents and bill of sale on your name. We’re selling the car because our son died 4 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him. He was with his fiance’s car coming home. The car belonged to our son and it brings us bad memories and that’s the reason we want to sell it. The last price is $1500. Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program. This runs and drives great and it has 1.8L i4 Engine , Automatic Transmission, Power Steering and Power Brakes.
If you need more details feel free to ask.

Here are some pictures with the car:http://www.use.com/JljYv

copies of correspondence for a fraudulent trailer sale

Reading from the bottom correspondence to the top, what appeared to be a really great deal on a concession trailer could have been a huge disaster financially. I like to look twice before jumping and your site and the posts (the wording is like they all took a seminar on committing fraud!) were very helpful. Thank you.

Hello,

Thank you for being interested in purchasing my 2006 Concession Food Trailer that I have for sale. Let me give you a few details about it. The trailer is in good condition, 30 gallon Fresh water tank, 40 gallon grey water tank. Really good shape, never had any problems with it, everything is loaded and ready to use. Non smoker Trailer with no paint work. I am selling it for $2,000. Because of my husband passed away not long ago (he was very sick) and this Trailer brings me bad memories and that’s the reason why I want to sell it asap…I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my parents in Fort Lewis, WA, trying to start a new life. I gave the Trailer to eBay shipping company in Fort Lewis, WA who will deliver it to the next owner. The transaction will be made through eBay Payments for our own safety. The best part about this is You are granted a 5 day trial period for inspection and test drive prior to making the purchase and also if for any reason you are not satisfied with the Trailer you can have it shipped back at no expense for you of inspection and shipping for free. If you are ready to buy it and you have the cash available, please reply with your zip code and phone number. I need to verify if I have free shipping in your area.

Regards,

Ana Moreno

Hey:)
My 2000 Ford F-350 It is still available for sale if interested and the price, as stated in the ad, is $3,000.
The vehicle is in pristine condition, no accident history, clear title, no dents or dings and no scratches, only 135,902 miles, 7.3L. Always adult driven and garaged, never abused or raced.
I had to move out and now I am living with my parents in Omaha, Nebraska. I am selling it at this final price of $3,000 because my husband died 1 month ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it a.s.a.p.
I want to use eBay services for the safety of both of us so if you’re interested in purchasing this vehicle just email me with your full name, 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.

2008 Keystone Outback 21RS LE $2000

Craigslist (Fresno, CA) listed with telephone number (559) 201-4254, to which I texted asking for info. I provided my email address and go this reply back:

Thank you for contacting me about my 2008 Keystone Outback 21RS LE. have for sale.
The Camper. is in great shape with clean title.It has no damage, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn’t been involved in any accident…I do have the title, clear. I am selling it at this final price of $2,000 because my husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories and I, along with my two sons (2 and 4 years old) decided to sell the house and so we moved in Omaha NE, trying to start a new life.
If you’re interested in buying i will wait for your reply THROUGH E MAIL !!!!!!
P.s. Also, you have the pics attached.Length (feet):21. Slide Outs:1 Sleeping Capacity:8
Have a blessed day!
Angela Chapman

The listing had 24 images of the trailer. (Which I later found to be taken off someone’s vacation photos on his Facebook page!)
A second email from this person linked to an eBay auction.
It reads:
The camper is located in Omaha, NE as I told in my first email but my brother-in-law will use his discount to help me with shipping. He own a business with sewing machines and he is using the shipping company from 3 years. We will use eBay for this transaction so both of us will be protected and insured by them. If you are not aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the camper before paying me. The inspection period will be set to 5 days and I think is enough for you to make a decision about the camper . I also want to inform you that I am entertaining another 2 offers for it at this moment so please let me know your decision as soon as possible to know what to do. One of them is waiting for a loan and will get in touch with me tomorrow if he can buy it or not and the other one have only $1,500 to buy it.

I have the camper listed on ebay so you can use the buy it now option. I think is more than fair that you pay $2,000 as shipping is my responsibility and you will receive the camper in maximum 2-3 days. Here is the link to my listing on ebay: http://ebay-motors.itm142151123545.stonaep.linkin.tw/itm/2008-Keystone-Outback-21RS-LE-/item5d693af428/142151123545.html

I am looking forward to get things started.
God bless you and your family,
Angela

That auction payment required the purchase of One Vanilla gift (VISA) cards. Also provided a number to verify with eBay motors that this was a legit auction and that eBay protection was in place. (Answered by a male voice who mumbled “ebay motors”… uh..no!
I have since found identical ads in RV sales sites and more craigslist sites.

Mrs. Sergeant with the U.S Air Force

I was sent an email per my requests for a ford truck being sold on offer up…. the person responded with a sad lost my husband story… I totally bought it till I noticed the story and listing didn’t go hand in hand. I don’t want to give the scammer info on how to tweak his or her scamming however when you state your a sergeant with the U.S Air Force…I would assume grammar is of importance to your reputation being you supposedly are a training sergeant. I was given or sent I should say, a statement with amazons logos on it… read closely into any request for money regardless of if the logo is familiar. Amazon is not going to allow their website to have grammatical error. Within the last 12 hours I’ve seen many similar listings all targeting females in my opinion. All sellers were listed female. Not to mention I had my son respond to one and him being male never received a message tugging at his heart strings about anyone dying. All I can say is to who ever posted the word for word email they received on eBay a few months back I truly thank you. Because without that email I would have never seen this coming.
