I received an email from someone claiming to be Karen Burton with email address [email protected] selling a 2009 Honda Odyssey Touring saying her husband died and she needed to sell this using the EBay vehicle protection program from Nebraska. Beware!
Kristyn? What is going on? are we still on this deal?? I got no reply from you.

Hi again, as I’ve told you in my first e-mail, I’m in the army with my military medical team and right now I am in a military base. We are training, getting ready for leaving the country. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay services so my presence isn’t necessary. The delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address within 2-3 working days. You will have 7 days to test/drive and inspect the car prior to make any purchase. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. 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.
Thanks again, hope to do business with you soon!

Hello, my name is Amanda, The car is still for sale. It’s a 2007 Toyota Camry SE, with an gasoline engine, automatic transmission, engine 3.5L, 6 Cyl and only 85k miles on it. Never had or need any paint/body work done, no accident history, clear title in my name, no dents or dings and no scratches.This car was used by my husband who passed away 4 month ago after a long bout with cancer. The price was reduced at $2,000 because I’m in a hurry to find a buyer. I need to sell the car before February 28th, when I will be leaving on military duty with my medical team out of the country for 18 months. Hate to sell it but it’s not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for 18 months. Let me know if you are interested, if you are applying for a loan or financing, do not reply back!

Here is a LetGo.com car sale Scam!
The first email contact after sending an email to her gmail accout asking her for the vin # just to see what would happen. So far, I received and replied as shown below. The first email is the Last one.
A True Scam if I ever saw one.
Hope this helps!
Here you have the vin# JNKBV61F58M273406. Well, I talked to my Commanding Officer and he said he can help me out with the delivery. He made a few arrangements with the guys from the loading squadron and he also checked the flights schedule that leaves the base. There are 3 flights on which I can load the car. So it’s going to be one on tomorrow at 10 p.m another one on Saturday there is another one that leaves the base on Monday. I’ll make the arrangements tomorrow morning and I’ll keep you updated if you are interested in buying the car.
We can use Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) as a supervisor for the transaction. Basically they will monitor the entire process. They will secure the payment and they will also supervise the shipping process and of course they will make sure we are both on the same page. The main idea is that Exchange Service provided by the Air Force is a reliable and act as a neutral third party in this transaction. They will be like a judge and also make sure we will end this deal without delays and safely.
If you wish to proceed just shoot me an email with your name (for the bill of sale and the agreement) and a delivery address, a phone # where you can be reached and I will initiate the deal through the Exchange Service (this info I request will also ease and speed up all the paperwork) such as Title.

Subject: Re: 2008 Infiniti G35
I am quite busy with work and I barely had the chance to go online as I serve for the Air Force. However, I still got the car and we can schedule for an inspection by having the Infiniti delivered at your nearest Air Force Base or parking lot using the USAF Air Cargo. I can explain you everything step by step but let me know what do you think about the car. Automatic transmission, clean title, is in great shape considering his age, I am asking $2000 on it and as I said we can arrange for an inspection, I am familiar with online sales so we will have to use a service from a business-specialized company.
Here you have more pictures with the car: http://imgur.com/a/ik0bk
Please if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. I will be more than glad to answer them to the best of my ability. Have full confidence in purchasing this 2008 Infiniti G35x. This car will serve you well.
I will be waiting for your response before I commit to anyone else.

Martha Anderson trying to sell a 2006 Dodge Ram for 2,000 through the Ebay buyer protection program and i called eBay and they said it was not legitiment. in her emails she was saying the same things i have seen on this website. SHE IS A SCAM!!!!!!!
This is what the craigslist ad looks like:
Xenon headlights, rear side window shades, Bluetooth, leather seats, power lift gate, entry lighting, wave wood trim, power seat, universal garage door opener, folding mirrors, auto start/stop function, tinted glass, cruise control, power windows, rear window defroster, fog lights, run flat tires, alloy wheels etc. CARFAX report upon request. scheduled maintenance. Always garaged, Excellent condition, Fully loaded with all the goodies, Looks & drives great, Must see, One owner, Very clean interior. CARFAX report upon request.
….This is what the initial email looks like:
Sorry for delay,my name is Diane,happy to see you are interested in my 2004 Toyota Rav4 .Let me give you a few details about it. Really good shape, never had any problems with it, no scratches or dents, Non-smoker,84k Mileage, automatic transmission,6 Cylinder V6 FWD, the title is clear in my name.
The price was reduced at $1,500.Photos available if you want.
I’m selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back over sea on December 14th 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 again ,
I will do my best to walk you through the process. The deal is handled by eBay. I’m working with eBay and it is the best option for me. The car is in their possession in Carson City, Nevada , ready to be delivered. We placed the ad on several states to find a buyer now, not next week or later.The car will be arrive at your address in 2 to 3 days. It will come with all the necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual etc). You will receive all the original documents. Title is clean, insurance and shipping are included in the price. You will have 5 days to try out and if the car is not like described, you can ask for refund and I will pay the shipping back but I know what I’m selling.
If you are ready to buy it, please give me your full name, a full shipping address and phone # so I can register the transaction with eBay and they will contact you with more details and information about this transaction.
Here is the link with all photo of my car: http://imgur.com/a/DKeiR
Thank you , Sgt. Diane Howard from Nevada Army National Guard
…. after asking to speak with her over the phone I get this:
I have briefly described the eBay transaction steps below:
1. Buyer, seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions)
2. Buyer sends money to eBay.
3. eBay confirms to seller that the amount has been received.
4. Seller performs the required services (shipping, insurance).
5. Buyer accepts delivery and informs eBay about the acceptance.
6. eBay releases the money to seller.
As you can see, you will receive the car BEFORE any money is released to me. You will get the chance to inspect it, test drive it and everything you like while your money is still safely held in eBay’s account. ONLY after you confirm to eBay that you agree with the vehicle, they will release the money to me.
If, for some reason, you disagree with the car (I assure you that is NOT going to happen since my car is in IMMACULATE condition inside and out) it will be shipped back to me on MY EXPENSE and eBay will send you your money back.
If you wish to proceed further, I will need your complete name and address so I can start the transaction with eBay’s Vehicle Purchase Protection Program.
….I asked a second time to speak with her, and no response.

First of all I want to thank you for your interest in my car:2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Full Options .This car is in excellent working conditions,NO accidents, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions,ONLY 115,822 Miles, is always garaged and rarely used and it has clear title ready to be transferred to the new owner.The final price that I want for this car is $3,000(including shipping and handling).I sell the car at this price because I cannot enjoy it due to my job(I work as a Doctor on a cruise ship) and I’m a single woman and I have nobody close who can use it.This car was used by my ex husband who died six month ago. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request ONLY secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay Motors Shipping Company services so both us can be protected. To support my argument regarding the condition of the car, I’ve added a brief photo-presentation.Please visi t the following link for more details: http://jpegbay.com/gallery/005821776-.html#1
I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon!
Thank you and have a great day!

OK, using eBay Motors Shipping Company services is fine with me. I only need to see the vehicle before any purchase. Please provide the address where the jeep is located and I’ll make the arrangements to inspect it.

Here is how it works:
1. First of all I will need the following details from you:
– Full Name

2. After I will receive the details from you,i will forward them to eBay Motors Shipping Company
3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices.You will need to confirm a safe deposit to eBay Motors Company and the funds will be 100% insured by eBay Motors Company
4. eBay Motors Company will contact me and the shipping process will be started. After you receive the car, you will have 7 days to test,drive, verify and do whatever you need to the car.If you will buy it, then I will receive the payment from eBay Motors Company. Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the car, and make sure everything is as agreed.
5. If you will decide that you will not buy it, eBay Motors Company will refund you and I will have the shipping company come pick up my car
If you wish to make the transaction,and you have the money cash, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed.

Hello, my name is Elvira Gordon, happy to see you are interested in my 2010 Toyota RAV4 Sport 72 k original miles, automatic transmission.
It is in perfect condition, no need for additional repairs,no scratches, dings, rust, special marks whatsoever. The interior looks great, runs like new and all services are up to date. Also, I need to mention that it was never involved in any accidents.
The price is $2,500 (non-negotiable). This belonged to my husband and after he passed away i decided to sell it. My name is on the title.
I moved at my daughter because I had a throat surgery and i will remain here for few months at least. I’m located in Augusta, ME and i took the vehicle with me. I gave it to eBay Motors who will deliver it to the next owner. The transaction will be made through them for our own safety because I can’t deal in person. The best part about this is that you’ll get 5 days for inspection for free with no further obligation or fees.
If you’re interested in purchasing it just email me your full name, full shipping address and phone # so that I can initiate the deal through eBay Motors and they will contact you to explain the procedure. Let me know asap if you’re interested the my suv please.
