Beware of Eric Harster. He is using the same story line being a military man ready to be shipped to Afghanistan and is based in WA. He claims that he need to sell his 1997 Four Winds 5000 that is located in Dallas TX and has 39,725 miles for only $2,500; and he is willing to pay for shipping anywhere in the US. I just wish we really ship him to Afghanistan and leave him there for the Al Queda to do target practice on him.
Shame on him to even invoke the good name of our military men and women who sacrifice their time and leave their families behind for the sake of patriotism. This is sickening to my guts. I was checking his story for authenticity when I got this website and found a trail of his dirty schemes. Thanks for the warning and more power to the creator of this website.

This time Eric Harster was selling a 2000 Key West Center Console Boat. Same story about being stationed in WA to be shipped out to Afghanistan but the boat was in TX. Wish my husband would have search his name sooner. He also claimed AutoTrader was the "3rd Party" handling the shipping. Gloria is the "contact" at AutoTrader and supplied the following info on where to send the funds: Arthur Smith 1439 Blalock Dr Houston, TX 77055

Claims to have 1997 Four Winds 5000 for $2500 and in Military at base in Washington with RV in Houston, TX at Auto Trader. Just happens I am careful about sending money to just anywhere without checking things out and asking questions. Thanks to caring and concerned friends that steered me in the right direction to get answers. Think anyone that claims to be a member of our fine Military needs to be put in the wildest jail we have.

Craigslist add selling a 94 twin turbo 300zx for $2700. Gave story that it is in TX, he's in Wand about to be sh ipped to Afghanistan (says he is serving in US Army.) Sent VIN etc. Sent an invoice etc from Auto Trader. My nephew (18yo) was reallyinterested in the car & had been emailing this guy, gave him phone # and address to ship car (against my better judgement, but he's young & not as experienced about scams.) I then googled the guy & found several scam alerts. Hope this warning reaches anyone else who might be duped by this POS!
