Chloe Finkel SSgt USAF ACC 23 FSS FSVF

Was intrested in a boat she had for sale.
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 Amazon. 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 Amazon to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. Amazon 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 Amazon will all the transaction information please reply with your full name, plus ph# they will contact you right away.

Regards
that was what she kept writing to me...

I saw an ad for a 2002 Honda S2000 on Craigslist that looked too good to be true. I emailed the seller and received the following reply, which is essentially the same as all the other replies:
Hello , My name is Chloe Finkel, and I'm emailing you about the 2002 Honda S2000 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 40,500, manual transmission, with an 4 Cyl 2.0L engine size, blue exterior and blue interior. 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 car before the 9th of June 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.
Thank you, Chloe

I received the same basic message about a gold wing Motor cycle. I don't like the fact they are using our military to run this scam. Very disrespectful.
