Selling motorhome on Craigslist. Contacted seller by email wanting to know location she replied with pics but no location of vehicle so we googled her name and found other scams using same name and airforce information. Did not pursue any further. Thank you!

I, too, have attempted to contact Maria on numerous occasions, only to receive the same information as the others who have reported. I was given a link to pictures that were posted on photobucket (which was my first tip-off), all the additional information I requested was ignored, and through my research of other RVs I discovered the very same general photo used in other ads by dealers. The ad still remained posted after the supposed date of her deployment to Afghanistan on July 21, 2012. I attempted to contact Maria one last time this morning to express my opinion. Within minutes of sending the email the ad was removed. Ironically, it took 3 attempts and nearly a week to receive a response to my inquiring emails, but my last email concerning my suspicions was read, and acted upon, immediately. The most heart-breaking thing about all this is "Maria" pretending to be a soldier of the USAF. That takes a not of nerve! Buyers beware...I'm sure we will be seeing more ads from this person in the future.

Hello , My name is Maria, and I'm emailing you regarding the Coachmen that I have for sale. The motorhome is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless exterior/interior condition. It has never been involved in an accident.The mileage is 38,520, it has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,500 as I need to sell the motorhome before the 21 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.Here are some pictures of my RV: http://photobucket.com/92-coachmen
Thank you, Maria
