I responded to an ad on Craigslist listing a 1970 Bonneville Triumph for sale. Here is the \"seller\'s\" July 13, 2012, response, which is nearly identical to other responses related to known scams by this person:

Hello,
My name is Maria, and I\'m emailing you about the 1970 Triumph Bonneville I have for sale. The bike is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless condition, no scratches and no dents. It has never been involved in an accident. The mileage is 5,375, with an 650cc engine size. It has a clear title with noloans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,900 as I need to sell the bike before the 24 of July when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don\'t want getting it 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 bike: http://photobucket.com/triumph-70

Thank you,
Maria

I knew there was something fishy about the whole thing, the car had alot of custom work done and appeared to have a supercharger/turbocharger with a custom dynotune.
