Everyone beware this is the email I got back after requesting pictures of the Winnebago on Craigslist Cincinnati.
Hi again, The motorhome is already at the delivery company in Bismarck,North Dakota ready for delivery. I have setup this sale with Amazon so this deal must go through them. Unfortunately I'm not near you and my daughter is in hospital so I can't meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my RV on internet. In order to complete this deal the payment must be sent a deposit of $1,950 to Amazon. As soon as they receive the payment will notify me to start with delivery. The remaining balane ($1,950) will be sent after you receive and test the RV. The delivery cost is included in the price. Amazon will not release the payment to me until you receive and inspect the motorhome (you have 10 days for inspection). If the camper is not in same condition as I said you will ship it back on my expense and Amazon will send you a full refund. But I assure you won't be the case. Now, if you are serious about this and want to move forward, just mail me back with:
- Your Full Name - Required by Amazon (You'll receive important guidelines + payment instructions from them.) - Your Delivery Address and Phone Number
As soon as I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Amazon and declare you as the buyer. They will contact you with further information regarding payment and delivery.
Thanks, hope to do business with you soon! PS:The motorhome comes with all the documents (title, bill of sale, full service records, etc...) HERE YOU CAN FIND ALL THE PHOTOS WITH MY Winebago. Paste the link in your browser: http://s1306.photobucket.com/user/josie_slate/library/winebago?page=1

see my conversation with this scammer:
Hey, whatever your name it is this time,
do you think the world is full of idiots ? and belivers for fantastic story`s ?
NO !! look at this :
Scam DetailsThis person advertised an RV for sale way below market value because she just got divorced. I asked if I could take a look at it and was told she had relocated to Topeka and the RV was sealed waiting to be sold and shipped. She said she can ask Amazon to get intouch with me with the details to prove she is a legitimate seller. I was told if I wanted to hear from Amazon I should send my personal info to her. This is when I cut it off
I wish I would have the time to track you down - but helping other not beeing trapped by you is also nice.

The rv 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 > > > Date: Fri, 12 Oct 2012 12:03:32 +0200 > From: firstname.lastname@example.org > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: 1990 Toyota Itasca Spirit - some questions > > Dear Laura, > > thank you for your quick response. > > Yes I do have some questions: > > Is the RV equipped with a generator ? > > Is the dash A/C blowing cold ? > > Are there any known defects, which I need to repair? > > May I get some pictures, showing all four views of exterior > and some interior pictures to get an idea how the floorplan > is laid out? > > How far are you from xxxxx xxxxxxx,FL ? > > Thank you in advance > > > > > > > > Am 12.10.2012 04:49, schrieb Laura Sanders: > > Hi, > I am glad to see that you are interested to buy my Itasca Spirit that I have for sale. I have a clear title in hand, no liens or loans. It is in great working condition, turn-key ready for the road, never involved in any accidents, 56,000 miles, an 3.0L 6 cyl engine and automatic transmission. The price was reduced at $3,500. I own this rv due to my recent divorce settlement and as a woman I don't need it and I really want to get rid of it fast. > > For any questions or additional info feel free to ask. > > Laura Sanders > >
