First Email after responding to craigs list posting:
Hello ,
My name is Maria, and I\'m emailing you about the Ford I have for sale. The
Truck 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 166,406, automatic
transmission, with an 8 Cylinder engine size, Black exterior and Gray
interior. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was
reduced at $3,200 as I need to sell the Truck before the 23th of July when I
will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don\'t want getting
it old in my backyard.Here are some pictures:

If you have any other questions, or need more info, please feel free to ask.

Thank you,
Maria

Second Email:

Hi Christopher,
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 SUV 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 SUV
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.

Regards
