Posting of a 2006 ST1300 for $3400 - obviously way below value. Responded to my mail asking for quality and the bike\'s whereabouts like this:

Jessica Padgett SSgt USAF ACC 23 FSS FSVF jessica.padgett1@hotmail.com

Hello ,
My name is Jessica, and I\'m emailing you regarding the Honda that 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 3,897, with an 1300 cc engine size. 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 bike before the 22th 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

Several tipoffs: Way below book, very low miles, great cond. , etc. USAF doesn\'t call their units \'Platoons\', and she\'s using her military branch and unit identifiers on a non-military e-mail address ( that\'s a no-no ). Never said where she\'s at. Googled \"USAF ACC 23 FSS FSVF\" and found another series of scam reports from \"Jane E Randall\" from Seattle/Houston/Phoenix craiglist entries of various items with same descriptive text on condition, leaving for Afghanistan, etc.

Hello , My name is Jessica Padgett, and I'm emailing you about the 2004 Nissan 350z that I have for sale. The car 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 130,000, manual transmission, with an 3.5L v6 Cylinder engine size, blue exterior and black leather interior. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $6,000 as I need to sell the car before the 25th of May 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.

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
