Hello,

This was the answer to a craigslist (Sacramento) for 1997 Airstream Safari on 9 July 2012. I asked if the price was a typo because it said $3000 and since I am in the military also I noticed the email address was not a .mil address but an MSN address. The actual emails that were received are listed below. Seller even sent photo album of Airstream but then said it was packed and ready for shipping. Don\'t be scammed!!!!! All real military addresses should end in .mil or .gov nothing else. When I did a search for the USAF address the scams popped up. Thank God for scamdex!


My name is Debra, and I\'m emailing you about the Airstream Safari I have for sale. The camper is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless exterior/interior condition. It has never been involved in an accident. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,000 as I need to sell the camper before the 20th of July 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,


Debra





Hi Natalie,

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 camper 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 trailer 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# they will contact you right away.
