Why so cheap?

 

From: Sean duncan 

Hi there, The Tacoma it is in perfect condition, there’s not a scratch or any dents on it. Everything from engine to tires is mint condition. I have a clear title with no liens or loans. I’m selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan on September 10th for a 1 year contract and I won’t let it go to waste in my backyard, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer. If you are interested email me back.

A few words about the Tacoma:

 Sean,

I’m very interested…..I have a truck that is falling apart…I’m just not a fast buyer…I understand you have to sell in a fast time frame….I know you marked the truck down a lot…and I hate to ask! What is the least you will take or it?

I am in a currently stationed at Nevada Army National Guard. We are getting ready for Afghanistan. We are in the final stage of our training and we are not allowed to use the phone during this period. This is supposed to keep us focused on our trainings. I am only allowed to check my email few times a day. I hope you can understand that we will have to stick to email for now. The vehicle is here with me at the base but I’ve already made all the arrangements with DAS to pick it up from the base. DAS will also handle the title transfer for an extra $75.00. Being in the army has some advantages and one of them is the fact that I can ship it very cheap. I will pay for the shipping charges, as I’ve said in my first email. I think I can have it there in 5 business days.
I am a member of the eBay buyer protection program and using this service you will give a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested in buying it so I can ask eBay to send you the details on how this works. I have to fill out a form on eBay and I need the name that will go on the title and an address where you want the car delivered. Once I do it, eBay will email you all the details on this transaction and we can get the ball rolling.

 I want to take this opportunity to assure you that there is nothing to be worried about in this deal. I would never cheat you or swindle you!! I have a reputation to protect and i am a good Christian and I do not want to be imprisoned. You have my word and good faith on the fact that I’ll keep my end of the bargain. I have never lied and cheated anyone. I will not risk my career, my freedom and my future for anything in the world! I would rather close this deal with other person than to know that you’ll be very stressed hoping that I am a honest person, until you receive your car. Your peace of mind is a lot more important than this deal!!!

  2. This idiot called me from 408-391-3279 which is a San Jose, Ca phone number. It was a black male acting like he had the truck trying to ship it to me. I asked him if he was at the National Guard Army Base in Nevada, and he replied, “No”. Then I told him it was a scan, then he told me he had the wrong number.

  3. I got the same seller on Greigs list , but name used is Mike Daley,Senior Medic Sgt. 1st
