I replied to a Craigslist add for a 2005 Jayco 5th wheel. After the first reply I knew it was a scam, but thought I'd have a bit a fun with them..
Glad you are one of the people interested in buying my camper. I'm selling it because i recently got divorced and as a single woman i don't need it. Let me give you a few details about it: very good shape, no mechanical issues,no scratches nor dents, and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents, has everything a big rig has but in a smaller package. Kitchen, fridge, toilet, shower, generator, thermostat contmore. The sale price is $4,600. I have a clear title, free of any liens or loans on it, under my name.
If you are interested in buying it or if you have any questions, please reply to this email.
So as you know from my first e-mail, I am a newly divorcee. I figured a fresh start would do me good, so I packed up and moved to my home town, Omaha Nebraska, with my job, and took the camper with me. I left the camper at a local warehouse, in a cargo container, ready to be delivered to its hopefully future new owner.
Now let me tell you how Google Wallet works. This system is a payment platform, their purpose being to keep safe the buyer and the seller. If you buy the camper your money is held in a trust fund account until you receive the camper and try it out for 5 days. Shippind is free, back and forth. If after the 5th day you decide to keep it, they will release the money to me upon your approval. Otherwise, (but I bet this won't happen) you can send it back and receive a refund, in full. First it sounds scary but once you get the idea on how it works, you will love it. If you want to give it a try, I can have them send you the invoice, meaning more details on how this works, payment options/delivery etc. For that I need your whole name, address and phone number. Will be waiting for your e-mail!
Reply from a request to inspect RV after I told them I was only 10 miles away:
I am sorry but its already at the shipping company, meaning its already sealed and ready to be shipped. Don't take it wrong, I have nothing against it, but even if you came, all you'd see would be a big wooden box. We can at least give Google Wallet a try, and after you can decide if its worth it or not.
