Selling a Nissan on craigslist in Springfield, MO. Says she's about to be deployed to afghanistan and doesn't want to pay for insurance and storage for a year. There's another complaint about her on this site from July (2014). Here's the ad:

Hi ,
Sorry for delay,my name is Pamela,happy to see you are interested in my 2005 Nissan Maxima SEL.Let me give you a few details about it. Really good shape, never had any problems with it, no scratches or dents, Non-smoker,101,425 Mileage, automatic transmission,V6 3.5 Engine,VIN:1N4BA41E85C853409, the title is clear in my name.
The price was reduced at $2,000.Photos available here:http://s1307.photobucket.com/user/PamelaSalas/library/
I'm selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan on October 31th for 1 year contract and its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for 1 year so there's no use on keeping it,therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer.If you are interested email me back.
Sincerely,
Senior Medic Sgt. Pamela Salas.

Same story as the others, saw an ad on CraigsList and responded. Then was asked to respond to email address. First clip here: Hi , Sorry for delay,my name is Pamela,happy to see you are interested in my 2006 Toyota RAV4.Let me give you a few details about it.

I responded to the above asking for a phone call, then got the next clip: Hi again, I will do my best to walk you through the process. As I told you in my first email, my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan. Right now I'm at Nevada Army National Guard. I am only allowed to check my email. We have to stick to email for now.I advertised it on other states also to get more exposure and sell it faster. The vehicle is here with me at the base and the delivery process will be managed by me, ready to be delivered to its future new owner. The deal is handled by eBay so I don't have much to do about it. I think I can have it there at your home address in 2-3 days. In addition, you get 5 days to try it out before buying it, and if you don't like it, you can send it back at my expense. For more info on how it works, I can ask eBay 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. If you would like to receive the email from eBay Motors with all the transaction information, please reply with your whole name, address and phone # and they will contact you right away. Thanks
