Hello,

My name is Sandra Griffin, I\'m emailing you regarding the 2000 Jayco Eagle 12 FSO 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 camper has a king and queen bed, roof top Carrier air conditioning, bathroom with shower and toilet and privacy curtain, slide out dinette that goes into a sleeping area that is 6\'X4\' , city water hookup and 15 gallon fresh water capacity, sink with faucet that has electric water pump, 3 burner stove that can be used inside or outside. 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 $1,900.00
Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .

Thank you,
Sandra and Michael Griffin

I found this also on Craigslist in Yakima, WA. Another trailer sale but this time for a Scamp trailer. Received all three emails. This time there was a new baby on the way and money needed for a bigger apartment. Similar quanity of money 1900.00, same "interaction party - Amazon", and exactly worded emails from "Omaha"

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 lose my son. I also got a new job and moved to Omaha Nebraska in order to start over. I'm in Omaha Nebraska but my presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Amazon. The camper is in Omaha at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-3 days. You will have 3 days to test it and inspect the camper 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 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 this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details.
Regards Sandra and Michael

Just wanted to be sure, that you received it and if you understood how to make the payment and how to confirm it to Amazon. Now I will wait the confirmation from Amazon that you sent the payment so i can start the shipping process and send you the camper.

6/7/12 I decided to ask to speak to Sandra on the phone. The "supposed husband" called and my husband spoke with him. My husband indicated that he knew it was a scam and told him it was sick for him to use a story about a child dieing. The "supposed husband" hung up the phone.

If you respond to the first (sob story) email, you'll get this one, which has all the hallmarks of a scam (ready to ship, "Amazon" as an intermediary (which isn't Amazon's business at all), etc.
