Subject: Re: 2005 Ford Escape

Hi there , thanks for emailing us. First of all we would like to inform you about the location of the vehicle Cleveland, OH. This car has 92,800 miles and never been in a wreck, never been painted on and has no dings, dents or scratches, also no mechanical problems. It has been garaged so the factory paint is spotless and shiny, even on the roof. This is my personal vehicle, title in my name/hand and there are no liens or loans on it. I was fired from my job and now we are in a hurry to find a buyer because we are in debts with the bank. My husband is a Dependable Auto Shippers employee and he can deliver the car with low costs everywhere in the US. The transaction will be managed by eBay, so everything will go smooth. You will receive the car for inspection before you make any payment to us. If you want me to reserve the car for you, just let me know. Final Price $2,500 (shipping included).

All wishes to you and your family, Allison and John Brown

XXXXXX, thanks for getting back to us. Let me give you all the details about this transaction and how we can complete it through eBay\'s Vehicle Protection Program. First thing you need to send the payment to an eBay Motors Representative. Once they have checked your payment, if everything is ok, they will notify us to start the shipping process. Once you receive the car, you have 15 days time for inspection and test driving. After this 15 days period if you agree to keep it you will have to notify eBay to forward us the payment, but if you don\'t like the car, the shipping company will take it back (on our expense) and eBay will give you a full refund, but I\'m sure you will love the car and this won\'t happen. This way you will see and inspect the car before we get paid. eBay Motors actually holds the money until buyer is satisfied with the vehicle. It\'s also a fair way to complete online deals.

If you are ready to start this transaction with us just e-mail me your complete delivery address (name and address where the car will be shipped). I will forward your details to eBay and they will contact you after they open a case.

Thanks, Allison and John Brown


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Playing along I advised I had to travel towards Cleveland for business and advised I could come buy and make a cash transaction. They gave me an address of 17005 Deforest Ave, Cleveland OH 44110, a quick search shows that address for sell. I requested a phone number and was given 937-552-5484 and was advised it was disconnected...it\'s a pinger number.
