A camper was listed for sale on Craigslist with the contact number 801 899-7664 sorry I cannot find the original post on Craigslist. I send a text to see if the camp had been sold. The reply was that the camp trailer had sold but his neighbor had a camper that she was selling because of the death of her husband. We wanted to see it she sent pictures she said that she would sell through Amazon to protect herself. Via email she ask for our address and phone for Amazon to have shipping information we became suspicious not only for the low price of $ 2500, but she wanted payment in Amazon cards. We received an authentic looking email from Amazon. Our son in law called Amazon to verify that the account was on Amazon books It was not there. The email we received had a contact number which I had used earlier which made the email see legitimate. Some answer saying Amazon. I asked question that they answered. But it was a set up. The real Amazon had no record of the ID number that had been provided.

It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn't been involved in any accident. Has tandem axle, loaded with many options, full size, brand new tires, bathroom, room to spare, length (feet):32, sleeping capacity 6-8, interior carper, air conditioning, generator, smoke detector, tinted viewing windows, fine kitchen, white exterior and tan interior. I have a clear title, without liens or loans on it, under my name. I am selling it at this final price of $2,500 because my husband died 1 month ago. and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it a.s.a.p. I want to use Amazon services for the safety of both of us so if you're interested in purchasing this rv, I can notify Amazon that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

trying to sell 2004 keystone montana bigsky for 2,500 sent pictures and said needed it gone a.s.a.p and wanted to use ebay for 'the safety of both of us'. I included the email she sent and added the number we used to contact her and also cannot find the listing on craigslist now. I thought it was a scam and then found another 2004 keystone montana listed for 14,999 so looked up the number used to contact leslie and it says it was from brownsburg indiana and then looked up the email and found this.

As I have told you in previous email my husband died recently. I had to move out and now I am living with my parents in Lawrence, KS . At the moment they are the only ones I can rely on. The rv is at the shipping company sealed and ready for the shipping.The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-4 days. Once you will get the rv you will have 5 days to try it out prior to making any purchase. In the case that you feel that the rv is not suitable,you can just return it all fees being on my expense. When receiving it you will have as well all the documents including title, sale bill , 2 sets of keys, full service records and more. The title and the bill of sale will be notarized and signed by me.
