My name is Jessica, and I\'m emailing you regarding the Fleetwood that I have for sale. The motorhome is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless exterior/interior condition. It has never been involved in an accident.The mileage is 59,047, it has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,400 as I need to sell the motorhome before the 20th 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. Same content in following emails as the \"Jane\" emails. Ebay does not work the way described in additional emails.

Hello , My name is Jessica, and I'm emailing you about the 2005 Skeeter SX180 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 265 hours and it comes with a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $ 3,500 as I need to sell the boat before the 20th 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, Jessica

Hi Jay, 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 boat 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 boat 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 and plus ph# they will contact you right away.
I'll admit, I bit. Ifigureed it out before sending any money or giving any financial information, but now I'm terrified that the scam is about information, not money. I gave "her" my name, address, phone number, and email address. I feel SO STUPID!! Any thoughts?
