| Fishy feeling when I was told I could not see the trailer to purchase |
My email sent to you I wasn\'t aware that you have moved out of the area. My apologies. I am not sure how shipping companies operate with the cargo containers but want to be sure that what I am getting is as advertised. Is there any way that I can see the unit prior to purchasing and where this is located? I am sure if you were getting something like a car etc you would want to see it in person. I hope you understand.

As I told you in my first email, I recently got divorced. I got a new job and moved to Omaha, NE for a new start. The camper is in my possession, already at the shipping company, in a cargo container, ready to be delivered to its future new owner. The deal is handled by Google Wallet so I don\'t have much to do about it. With Google Wallet, you get free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to try out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don\'t like about it you can send it back at my expense. For more info on how it works, I can ask Google Wallet to send you an email with more details on how to buy it. They will contact you shortly, as soon as have your personal details. This way you also get proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. If you would like to receive the email from Google Wallet with all the transaction information, please reply with your whole name, address and phone # and they will contact you right away.

Thanks for replying so quickly. The pictures are very clean and would love to see the trailer and purchase it once I look it over quickly. Where are you located so that I can take a look at the trailer? Is there a phone number that I can reach you at and a location that you would like to meet in person to see the trailer? We can meet in a grocery store parking lot or something like that if you are not comfortable in meeting at your personal home.
I am not sure what your accepted payment method would be? I would be happy to offer you a bank cashiers check for $4,000 (four thousand dollars) just let me know who you would like me to address it to your name \"Natasha Collins\" and would love to take this home very soon....possibly this Friday evening 9/20/13 or Saturday morning/afternoon if you are available to meet?
Do you have all the manuals and information sheets from the trailer? This is just something that may be helpful to learn how to operate the trailer. If you can bring all your paperwork on the trailer, including title, that would be much appreciated.
I am very interested in this trailer and am a serious buyer. Looking forward to your call. As mentioned I am in xxxxx and not sure where you are located near Louisville, KY.

I saw your Craigslist ad #4074481336 and wanted to see if you can email me more pictures and if you have more information on the trailer, the unloaded weight, and if it would be possible to see it. .......
