Hi,
The car is located in Benton, Arkansas at DAS ( Dependable Auto Shippers ) headquarters, in the container, sealed and ready for shipping. You will have 10 days so you can inspect the car. Once you have inspected the car and decided to keep it, you will confirm your decision to eBay and only then they will re-route the money in to my account, but if by any reason, you won’t be satisfied with the car you can return it back for a full refund of your money. I will take care of the shipping, don’t worry. You will receive the car with all the necessary papers (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, insurance etc). Just get back with your full name and full shipping address and I will get everything started as soon as possible, then eBay will contact you with more further instructions.
Hope to hear soon from you.
Thanks a lot!

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my boat. The boat is in perfect condition – like new! 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. For this transaction I want to use ebay because I want to provide you a fast and very secure way. They will handle the transaction for me. You will make the payment to ebay and they will hold the money until you receive and inspect the boat. ONLY AFTER you receive the boat and you inspect it (you have 5 days for inspection) ebay will release the payment to me. The inspection time period will begin as soon as you receive the boat at your address. Meanwhile eBay will hold the money into a trust account. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the boat before you decide to buy it. This way we are both protected : i will know that i have a serious buyer who has the money to pay me and you will be able to see and inspect the boat before buying it .
The final price is $ 4,000 with shipping costs and insurance included. The price is low because I want to sell the boat very quickly. My husband died in Iraq 3 months ago and I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister. I can’t afford to take days off my work for this sale so i’m trying to sell it online.
If you are really interested in purchasing the boat please send me your full name, shipping address and your phone number. Ebay will give you all the details regarding the shipping and payment.

I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible.

Regards!

The car is at Grand Forks AF base, North Dakota, where i am currently stationed, until April 15, when I will be deployed to Iraq.This is why I must sell it before that. Shipping won’t be a problem for me. I will take care of that, with no costs on your end.
This is a large amount and I would like to conduct the deal using an authorized third party like eBay using their Purchase Protection Program, so this should eliminate any trust issues. They will keep a deposit until the purchase is final, and you test and accept the car. If you will not get the car as described, and also a clean title you will receive your money back.To be able to use this program you need to qualify. I have been approved 3 years ago and I was very satisfied. So, if you are interested in buying my car just let me know your name and shipping address.
I will forward them to eBay’s protection program and wait for the approval.
The ad generated a great deal of interest and people have been calling me non stop and the line was down for a while

Hi, This is a charity sale, I will donate money to a children’s foundation so that business will be done through eBay, because they organize a lot of work to this end. Right now I’m in a business trip and can not meet to show you the car, but I can send you more pictures and details. I hope it’s good for you. I can arrange the delivery on my expense. If you want to buy the car send me your full name and address of delivery and eBay will contact you with all the details of this transaction (invoices and payment details). If you agree with my price and terms I’m ready to reserve the car for you. The vehicle has a clean title and is not under leasing or bank liabilities. The paint is in perfect shape. There are no dings, scratches, damage or rust on the body. This vehicle has been very well maintained and kept both smoke and accident free. I will expect your e-mail. Thank you

Hi, I would prefer to continue our conversation on email, I don’t want to communicate with you over the phone because I have some hearing problems. I suffered an accident when i was a teenager and since then I have this problem. So please let’s keep it on the email because it’s very frustrating for me to talk on the phone!

Hi, I have attached you some photos. I can also send you a carfax report if you need. As I told you I’m currently in a business trip and I will be back in May this year. Because this is a charity sale a company must be used to make the transaction so I chose to use eBay.This way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before any money reach me and on the other hand I am sure I have a serious buyer. Here is how the process works: – you give me your shipping address so I start the transaction on eBay Motors and then to use it for shipping – they review and accept our transaction and provide you with the payment instructions, – you make the payment to eBay Motors VPP, – they give me the confirmation that they received your payment to them and I start the shipping, – you receive the vehicle and inspect it, – you tell them that you want to keep the vehicle and only then they send the money to me. All car’s documents are in the glovebox and you’ll receive them along with the car. This includes the title, all service records, original manuals and a bill of sale. The title and the bill of sale are signed by me, all you have to do is to put your name on them and the agreed amount on the bill of sale. You will need the full service records so you can transfer the remaining warranty under your name. eBay Motors will hold the money until the car is delivered to you. You will have 5 business days for inspection. If the car is not like described you will have to ship it back at the end of the 5 business days on my expense and have your money back from eBay Motors VPP. But I am sure this will not be the case and you will love it. In order to move forward I will need your full name and shipping address. eBay will get in touch with you with further details and instructions. Looking forward to hear from you!

Hello again,

The car is at MacDill AFB Tampa Bay, FL, where I am currently stationed, until April 5-th, when I will be deployed to Afghanistan (I’m a US AirForce Lieutenant). This is why I must sell it before that date. Shipping won’t be a problem for me, being a military I have access to some special facilities. I will arrange all that, with no costs on your end. This is a serious amount of money and I would like to conduct the deal using an authorized third party like Ebay using their Purchase Protection Program, so this should eliminate any trust issues. They will keep a deposit until the purchase is final, and you test and accept the car. If you will not get the car as described, if you find any problem with the paperwork or if you find any reasons to refuse the car, you will get an instant refund of your deposit.

In order to use this program you need to qualify. I have been approved 3 years ago and I am very satisfied since then. So, if you are interested in buying my car just let me know your name and shipping address. I will forward these to eBay’s protection program and wait for the approval.

This sale generated a great deal of interest and people have been calling me all day long and the line was down for a while. You can still contact me by email at any time.

Sincerely,
Lt. Frank Ambers

Hello,

I’m SGT Jeremy Burton. This 2005 Acura TL is in perfect working condition.
This vehicle engine runs very, very smooth. No electrical or
mechanical problems on this beauty. This detailed vehicle makes the
exterior looks like it just came off the assembly line. The car has
38,000 miles.

As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal
closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for you
to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will
hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the
car and you inspect it (for 15 days) eBay will send the money to me; in
this way we are both protected. If the car is not suitable for you
from any reason, your money will be fully refundable and I will take
the car back. I’m sure it won’t be the case because it’s a state of
art looking and working vehicle. I am located in Canada and I was sent
here with my department. One week ago my wife moved here with me and
brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the
United States because we can’t register it here; it has US specs and
everything, and registering it here in Canada will take forever. My
final price on it is 2,900 USD. If you will take it for this price, I
am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by
plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You
will get it to your address.

Please get back to me asap if you want to move forward, and include in
your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I
can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction
payment and shipping details from them.
Best Regards,
Jeremy and Laura Burton

Hasn’t been involved in any accident. It was always garaged and never kept outside.

Thanks.

The car is already at the shipping company in Wilmington, sealed and ready for the shipping. I have a contract with eBay so this deal must go through them. I’m very busy with my job and I’m out of the town so I can’t meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my car over the internet. The shipping cost is included in the price.

Here is how it will work:
1.First of all I will need the following details from you:
– Full Name
– Full Shipping Address
2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to eBay.
3. After they will process your info, they will send the invoices to both of us. The invoice will show you the details on how to make a refundable payment.
4. eBay will contact me and I will ship the car to you. After you receive the car you will have 3 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the car. If you will buy, then eBay will release the money to me.
5. If you will decide that you will not buy the car, eBay will refund you the money and I will have the shipping company come pick up my car. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. I look forward to hear from you.

Thank you

Hello,

My 2004 Mazda 3 S is in great shape, no engine problems, damages or hidden defects. Hasn’t been involved in any accident. It was always garaged and never kept outside.
I have enjoyed this car and I am sad to see it go. Purchase with complete confidence due to a Total Care MAZDA EXTENDED WARRANTY, good for 100,000 miles or until 2011.
The next oil change is due in 1,000 miles. The new owner must call the Mazda Warranty with in 30 days to transfer the warranty or it will be voided.
Excellent interior and exterior. Please check the photos!! I have all the original manuals, documents and keys.
I want this transaction to be smooth and I don’t have much time at my disposal to waste my time with endless discussions. I believe $3,500.00 (not negotiable) is more than a fair price.
You can reach me at (505) 465-4103 or you can email me if you are interested.

Thank you,

Hello,
I am emailing you regarding the 2003 FORD EXCURSION that I have for sale on craigslist.com
The vehicle looks and works perfect. As you see it has a lot of options. No hidden problems and never involved in any kind of accidents, one owner, clean title.
Since the car was listed on eBay.com I prefer closing the transaction trough their system because we are both protected. If you don’t know how does the eBay Safe Pay work please let me know so I can help you.
I used it several times (as a seller but as well as a buyer) and everything was perfect.
The vehicle was inspected by eBay. As well, shipping & handling fees are included in the final price ($6,000).
Let me know if you’re interested and i will send you all the details.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you.

2003 FORD EXCURSION E/B DIESEL 4X4
VIN: 1FMSU45P83ED67905
Mileage: 107,894 miles
Vehicle title: Clear
Body type: SUV
Engine: 8 CYLINDERS 6.0 Liters
Transmission: Automatic
Fuel type: Diesel
The car isn’t listed on eBay anymore.Because of the previous potential buyer i had to stop the auction at request and deliver it to his location.I will explain to you how the deal should go on.The sale will be managed by eBay for our own protection as they act as a neutral third part.eBay will keep the money until you inspect/drive the vehicle. The title is clear.
This is how the Vehicle Purchase Protection Program works:
1. I will contact eBay and give all the info about this deal.
2. They will email us the forms which are needed for our deal.
3. You will send half of the hole price ($3,000) to eBay,just like an insurance, and they will notify me to ship the vehicle to your location.
4. After you will inspect/drive the vehicle and decide to keep it, eBay will forward me the funds and the deal is done.
Remember you have 5 days to test it. If by any reason the vehicle is not as described or if you find any problems with it I will pay for the returning fees. I’m sure it won’t be the case because it’s a state of art looking and working vehicle. I apologize if it seems like I’m pushing on this deal but I really want to be sure everything is clarified before any further steps.
If you wish to purchase it please provide me your full name, address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
Thank you

I gave my name and address, but haven’t heard from him yet regarding anything further. It was such a convincing add because you think EBAY would pay for it if its a fraud. I decided to google people’s experience with the vehicle protection plan…and saw the RIPOFF stories! Thank God I didn’t take any further action. We need to realize what type of world we live in, and get back to basics…God number one, and buy things with cash in hand…why is it people will believe an email…sight unseen, but not have faith in God? I learned a very valuable lesson into where we are headed! Pray!
