|+1 Military Personal Leaving on Tour of Duty Having to Sell Vehicle Emmediately thru Amazon|
My name is Chloe, and I\'m emailing you regarding the Nissan that 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 27,606, automatic transmission, with an 6 Cylinder engine size, gray exterior and black interior. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $6,000 as I need to sell the SUV before the 7th 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.
After this message I got a 2nd one stating she was already in training and the deal would be going thru Amazon. I just went back to copy this email but it is gone. Cannot find it anywhere on my phone (which is where I read it) or on the computer. This is messed up.

Hi Kimberly, 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 car 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 car 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 and ph# and they will contact you right away. Then this the 3rd message Hi Kimberly,
I will ask Amazon to send you the invoice ( contact details, payment instructions) explaining how things work. After you receive the invoice,in case you decide to buy it you will have to pay through Amazon, as they will hold, protect and guarantee your money until you get the car. You will try it out for 5 days, and if at the end you are happy with it, you can give them the "green" to release the money to me. Or if not, you can just send it back and get a refund, without paying for the shipping. WOW
