Hey

For the moment I am stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB in Goldsoboro, NC. I serve the USAF and I\'ll finish my tour in 2 weeks. So I sealed the truck here and it is ready to be shipped using the USAF Air Cargo I won\'t be charged for that I\'ll also have truck service pick it up from the airport and deliver it at your home address. The delivery will be door-to-door, at your exact location, so you will not have to pick it up from somewhere. Check the attachments for the pictures with the truck.

The VIN is 5TEHN72N33Z237768, automatic, 150,284 miles. Clean Title, Never been in any kind of accidents, looks and run smoothly. Of course I am not asking you to buy a cat in the bag so we can arrange for an inspection and I can have the car delivered to you through the USAF Air Cargo, so it will cost me nothing. However I am familiar with online sales so I will have to use a service from a business-specialized company. I can explain you everything step by step but let me know what do you think about the vehicle.

On craigslist there's an ad for a 1998 Toyota Tacoma sr5 with 62000 mikes for $1800 listed in Mobile, Alabama. I responded to it thinking it was a great deal. The guy said he needs to get rid of it by oct 14 as he was leaving for Afghanistan again and didn't want the truck sitting in his garage. Then I receive this email from him and it seemed kinda fishy: 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 vehicle is already at the shipping company in Oamaha NE sealed and ready for the shipping. My presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Google Checkout. 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  vehicle  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  Google Checkout to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. Google Checkout  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  Google Checkout  will all the transaction information please reply with your full name and shipping address and ph#  they will contact you right away.

Luckily I stopped right there and googled his name and it came up as a scam. I wasn't gonna fall for that. Who wants to buy a vehicle that's been shipped directly to your house and you haven't even gotten to look at it. DON'T FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!!!!
