I received the following email offering to purchase my RV. The wording is almost identical to other scams reported on this site:

Hi there,

Thank you for getting back to me.Can you assure me that is in good
state and that i will not be disappointed with it?I\'m ready to pay
your asking price and to be honest, i want to buy this for my brother
as his gift. I am a marine engineer that works on the sea at the
moment. phone calls making and visiting of website are restricted but
i squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an email
regarding it so my only quickest payment option is PayPal as i can
send money via PayPal anytime.Since I\'m requesting this transaction to
be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the pay pal
fee/charges on this transaction and if you don\'t have an account with
paypal, it is pretty easy, safe and secured to open one. Just log on
to www.paypal.com. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as
possible? I have a mover that will come for it once payment clears . i
will like to see more pics i look forward to hear back from you soon.

Below are the details needed

Your PayPal e-Mail Address :
Full name:
Firm Price:
Cell Phone number

Thank You

Thank You ============================================================================================ I can't believe he is still using the same e-mail address. I almost fell for it. But...if it looks too good to be true it probably is! Mine was a Shasta Camper as well.
