Hi Tom,


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 ATV 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 it 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 with all the transaction information please reply with your full name and phone # and they will contact you right away.

Regards

Inquired about why this Jeep was so drastically marked down, was given this response. After Googling his name I found that he has scammed others in the past, using almost verbatim language.
"Hello,
My name is David, and I'm emailing you about the 2008 Jeep Liberty Limited I have for sale. The SUV 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 45,507 automatic transmission, with an 3.7L 6 Cylinder engine size, Black exterior and Tan interior. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,300 as I need to sell the SUV before the 3th of June 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, David"
