I replied to a super cheap boat for sale and received this email in response.

Hello,

My name is Beatrice Sanders, I\'m emailing you regarding the 2002 Yamaha LX 2000 that I have for sale. The jet boat is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (smoke-free). It has less than 150 hrs use, Cobra Jet steering fins, Island Racing oil line replacement kit with stainless steel clamps, Group K Fuel-Air seperator with electric fuel pump, and VE-VE boat trailer guide-ons . All upholstry and fiberglass is excellent. Boat comes with bimini top, cover and trailer. Tires are excellent. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. I\'m selling the boat because my 21\'s years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee coming to our home at his little brother birthday. It was his boat and it brings me bad memories and that\'s the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. The price that I\'m asking is $2,200.00
Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .

Thank you,
Betty and Michael Sanders

Hello again,
Please let me explain to you the process of this transaction and you can decide if you want to proceed or not. As I told you in my first email, I recently lost my son. I also got a new job and moved to Omaha,Nebraska in order to start over. I'm in Omaha but my presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Amazon. The item is in Omaha at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to test and inspect the item prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back on my expense. If you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name, address, and phone#. Once I have your info I will forward them to Amazon to get things started.Amazon will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete the payment and you will also have proof that I am covered by them as a legitimate seller. I tried to cover all the details you may need.Waiting for your email with the requested details.I really need to sell it asap.Hope you understand.
Thank You

I EMAILED "BETTY" BACK WITH MY RESPONSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:
I know that you probably will not read this, but you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. If you want to scam people, that’s your own prerogative. But to be preying on people with the story of losing your son in a drunk driving accident is beyond heartless. For some of us, this really does hit home. As I TOLD YOU we just lost a close family friend due to this kind of behavior. How dare you hide behind a lie as big as that. I feel nothing but disgust and pity for you. I understand that you have probably been doing this type of thing for quite a while now, scamming others out of the money they actually worked their behinds off for, but rest assured that I will do everything possible to try to find out who you are and bring forth some type of justice being that I am sure you have already gained a hefty amount of $ in previous theft endeavors. And to think there are people out there that actually fall for this type of thing. Makes me sick. Good day to you and may karma bite you in the rearend!

Hello,
My name is Beatrice Sanders, I'm emailing you regarding the 2003 Rockwood 232 ROO that I have for sale. The camper is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (smoke-free). The trailer is a 2003 model, Rockwood Roo, Hybrid in that the front and rear beds open up. It also has a push out that moves the "living room" out about 2 feet. This gives you a lot of space inside for such a small trailer. It is 23 feet long and has a gross vehicle weight of 4770lbs. This is very light weight for a trailer that sleeps 8 people. It is most comfortable with 5-6 people but you can fit 8 if you need to. The front drop down is a queen size, the back drop is a full, the table folds down for a bed and the couch folds flat. It has a bathroom, shower, tub, kitchen, refridgerator, microwave, stove, oven, sink, lots of drawer and cabinet space. It has built in stabilizing jacks, an awning, water heater, water tank, holding tanks. It has a furnace for cold nights and an Air Conditioner that works on the hottest days. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. I'm selling the camper because my 21's years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee coming to our home at his little brother birthday. It was his camper and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. The price that I'm asking is $2,000.00 Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .
