   2011 Polaris Sportsman Touring LE 850
My husband sent a request to Ms. Henson requesting for us to come out and look at the 4 wheeler she listed for sale on Craiglist in our local area (McKinney, Texas -DFW area). She informed us that she has listed it all over the United States and that she is not local, that we can not look at it first and that we must work through amazon to pay and pushed for us to provide payment information.

We received the following response which looks amazing similar to another scam where the lady stated she is selling her husband\'s Yamaha Rhino for really cheap because her husband died in Iraq 3 months ago. (selling for $3K and the Rhino is worth at least $12K) We attempted to locate her husband on the list of casualties and he is not on there. Plus, this response is identical to the the one we received, so they are definitely a scam. Always follow the old motto: \"If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.\"

Hello ____,
My name is Jennifer, and I\'m emailing you about the Polaris Sportsman Touring I have for sale. The atv is in very good shape, no mechanical issues, without scratches or dents, and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents. The mileage is 42. I legally own a clear title, free of any liens or loans, under my name. The price was reduced at $3,800. Because of my divorce settlement, i own this quad and as a woman i don`t need it so i`m trying to get rid of it as soon as possible (that`s why i`m selling it so cheap).
