Posted a 2006 Yukon Denali XL (Black) for sale for $4,200.00 in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Stating reduced for quick sale due to her deployment to Afghanistan with special forces before July 8, 2012. Upon inquiry as to where to meet for a test drive etc, no mention until a few emails later that she was in Topeka, KS and that the vehicle was already prepared for shipping via Amazon and would arrive in three days and that I would have 5 days to test drive, inspect and then decide if I wanted the vehicle prior to paying for it. I gave her my phone number for contact but no phone calls only emails stating she was in special force training and unable to leave the base. I repeatedly asked for her phone number to make direct contact but nothing. Finally getting ready to say \"yes\" to the deal when I decided to \"google\" her name whereas, I found several other scams with the exact same script, and her name as well etc. Thanks for helping me divert a HUGE mistake.
