Kubota Tractor for Sale
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Carla
Email Address:
   carla1campbell@comcast.net
Carla offers a Kubota tractor on US Farmer.com at a price that is about $4K too good to be true. Tractor is advertised as being in Texas. Calls to \"Carla\" go unanswered, but go through an internet phone. The area code is New York. \"Carla\" responds via email saying that her husband died, she took the tractor to Pittsburg, PA where she resides and she will ship it to me without any obligation before I pay a dime. If I don\'t like it - she will ship it back.

I respond that she can forgo the $3K expense of shipping and I will have a mechanic inspect on site. Response is no, she is way to busy for that and I cannot see the tractor until she receives payment confirmation from Google checkout.

Content of last email follows:
Hi, I am very sorry but I receive 20 30 mails per day from different people who want to come to my home or speak on the phone. I\'ve chosen to sell it online because I can make a listing with pictures and all description of the item and I don\'t have time to stay all day near the tractor or the phone. If you are interested please feel free to email me with any question you want.
Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with Google Checkout so my presence isn\'t necessary. Like I\'ve told you, the delivery process is payed by me and I want to finish this deal through Google Checkout because they are a big company and we can both be protected and insured.
You will receive the tractor in max 2-3 days and you will get the chance to inspect it for 5 days , test drive it and everything you like. The tractor will be delivered directly to your requested address, as soon as I have the payment confirmation from Google Checkout. They will hold the money until you receive , inspect and decide if you want to keep the tractor. If you find the smallest problem with the tractor you will ship it back on my expense .
If you\'re interested to purchase just email me with your full name ,shipping address and your phone number , so I can notify Google Checkout that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
I await your email with the requested details so we can move forward.
