to me Hello, My name is Jane, and I'm emailing you about the Ducati I have for sale. The bike is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless condition, no scratches and no dents. It has never been involved in an accident. The mileage is 4,100, with an 996 cc engine size. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,200 as I need to sell the bike before the 17th of May when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don't want it getting old in my backyard. If you have any other questions, or need more info, please feel free to ask.
Thank you, Jane

2007 listed on Craigslist for $4,450 purportedly selling through eBay so "you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller" but after reading all these other emails about a Prius and an RV that received the exact same emails... this is a scam!
the most telling email:
Hi , Right now I am at the military base getting ready for Afghanistan. This means that I am doing a special training and I am not allowed to get out of the unit. The car is already at the shipping company in Topeka KS sealed and ready for the shipping. My presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with eBay. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the car 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. If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, i can ask eBay to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. eBay will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. If you would like to receive the email from eBay will all the transaction information please reply with your full name, and address plus ph# and they will contact you right away.
Regards
