Hi,
As I told you in my first email, I recently got divorced. I got a new job and moved to Topeka KS for a new start. The motorhome is already at the shipping company in Topeka 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 it 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 phone # and they will contact you right away.

Regards

I had replied to a Volvo for sale on Craigslist, Here are her two responses
Hello,
My name is Kristina Deighan, and I'm emailing you about the 2007 Volvo XC90 that I have for sale. The SUV is in perfect condition, with no need for repairs, no scratches, dings, special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (smoke-free). It has 62,000 miles, automatic transmission, blue exterior and black interior . It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it.The price was reduced at $4,100.00 as I need to sell the SUV before the 1st of September when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don't want it getting old in my garage.If you have any other questions, or need more info, please feel free to ask.
Thank you, Sgt. Deighan
Second reply.................

This was the first e-mail after contacting the seller about the bike:
=====
Im Karen, and I am glad to see so much interest in my Honda Gold Wing. Its in really good shape, I never had any problems with it, no scratches nor dents, and its free of any accidents. It has 41,700 miles and 1,800cc engine size. I have the title, in my hand, clear, free of any liens or loans on it. At first I tried to sell it at its Blue Book value, but I changed up my mind and reduced the price drastically at $4,000. I got divorced recently, that is how I got the trike, and I am trying to sell it because as a woman my personal car is enough, I like to play it safe.
