2008 Harley Touring Motor Trike 4500.00 I was sent a email by EBAY MOTORS to secure payment through them and they would hold my funds until item was delivered and I had 5 days to decide weather to keep it or send it back at the sellers expense. I wish i could own this item but cannot chance loosing my savings to find out.The site looks real and is very convincing.

Same scam on Craigslist in Ft. Lauderdale , she sends more pictures and even the Hull I.D number! Hello , My name is Patricia A. Meyer, and I'm emailing you about the 2002 BAYLINER CIERA 2455 I have for sale. The boat is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless exterior/interior condition, no scratches and no dents. It has never been in salt water. It has 150 hours and it comes with a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $4,000 as I need to sell the boat before the 10th of April when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan,. If you have any other questions, or need more info, please feel free to ask.
Thank you, Patricia

Almost same exact verbiage on Craiglist Milwaukee auto ad. It was for an 02 F-250 with a 7.3L for about 10k below market value. No phone number provided in add. Same exact story as far as leaving for Afganastan. I email the seller, they email back from patricia.meyer29@msn.com. We email back and forth, i tell her that i am interested, and she calls me from 785-260-7108, with broken english gives me the story. By now i'm 90% sure its a scam, but i'm down to listen to how this is going to play out. I tell her i'm interseted in buying it, to please send me the info. I get an email from "ebay@buyers-protection-program.com:, which appears to be real, even has an 800 number, which for shits i call and some guy with and indian accent answers "hello, ebay". Now I'm pretty sure last time I dealt with ebay for a problem, i spent a good 20 mins on hold and going through electronic prompts, not hello ebay. The other key is the email address. Also check out this link which has got the scam down to a science. http://pages.motors.ebay.com/buy/purchase-protection/index.html So long story short. Scam. Good Luck.

Craigslist post purporting to sell a car $10,000 below KBB. 757 area code (Norfolk Craigslist).
My name is Patricia Meyer, and I'm emailing you about the 2007 Honda CR-V EX-L AWD I have for sale. The SUV is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless exterior/interior condition, no scratches and no dents. It has never been involved in an accident. The mileage is 21,705, automatic transmission, with an 4 Cyl engine, AWD, tan exterior and tan leather interior. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,300 as I need to sell the SUV before the 10th of April when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don't want getting it old in my backyard. If you have any other questions, or need more info, please feel free to ask.
Thank you, Patricia
