Selling a car that's in Florida and will pay to ship it to the buyer. Ad ran on craigslist in Springfield, MO
Here's the ad:

Hello,

My apologizes for the delay, my 2004 Honda CR-V EX is in great Condition, super clean, 96,604 miles, 4 Cylinder Gasoline (2.4L), VIN: SHSRD78814U255285, no DINGS, no accidents, ALWAYS garage kept, service records up-to-date, clear title no loan or lien on it. The car is registered on Florida, but don’t worry the title is clear and we won’t have any problems registering the car in your name.
The price on it is $2,000. I am selling my car, because at the moment I’m in combat training at the Eglin Air Force Base and I am do to leave overseas in about two weeks.
At the moment my car is at the shipping warehouse in Miramar Beach, FL, because I had the car for sale a few weeks ago and I managed to sell it to a person from your area. The car was sent to him, but when it reached the destination, the buyer was unable to pay for it, because he didn't got a loan. The car was send back to me and remained at the shipping company until I was able to find another buyer.
I asked eBay to help me solve this issue. I will have it shipped with DAS Auto and I think I can have it delivered in 2-3 working days max. Don’t worry about the shipping price, I will pay it, because I am seeding it to same area and I will only pay a quartet of the price. And this is not all, after you receive my car you will get a 5 days testing period, before you decide buy it.
To make this deal happen I must ask eBay to send you the terms and conditions of the eBay Program, but before I can do that I need your approval. So if you agree please give me your full name, address and contact number(s) so that eBay can register you as a potential buyer and sent you the terms and conditions.
Please remember that at this moment you have no obligations what so ever, just read the Transaction Term and after that let me know if you are interested in doing this sort of transaction.
