Hello,

My name is Evelyn Murphy, and I\'m emailing you regarding the (2) 2004 Sea Doo Bombardier GTX 4 Tech that I have for sale. The jet ski is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless condition, no dents and no mechanical problems. It has never been in salt water. The left ski is showing to have 59.3 hours on it. The right is showing to have 54.9 hours. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $3,900 as I need to sell the boat before the 2nd of August 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,
Sgt. Murphy

1) First off, you can see that I asked her straightforward what was wrong with the boat for such a low price.....
"How big is this boat and what’s wrong with it? It looks pretty nice for the price. Is this a dealer? Thanks, JOe"
2) Here is her first reply, almost identical to the ones above:
"Hello,
My name is Evelyn Parker, and I'm emailing you regarding the 2006 SEA RAY 240 SUNDECK that I have for sale. The boat is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless condition, no dents and no mechanical problems. It has never been in salt water. It has 150 hours and it comes with trailer and all the extras included. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $4,200 as I need to sell the boat before the 5th of August 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, Sgt. Parker
3) I sent another email explaining that I thought this was all a bit too weird, and this is her final response before I actually got smart and googled her and found you guys had the same issues. This is terrible. Here is her final response:
Hi again,
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 boat 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 boat 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.
Regards, Evelyn
