First email:
My name is Jenny, happy to see you are interested in my Toyota Land Cruiser. Let me give you a few details about it. Really good shape, never had any problems with it, no scratches nor dents, the suv is free of any accidents, 2,760 miles, manual transmission, 6 Cyl 4.2L engine, gray exterior/gray interior, the title is legally under my name, clear and free of any liens or loans. I wanted sell it at its Blue Book value but without any luck so I changed up my mind and reduced the price drastically at $6.900. I got divorced recently this is how I got it and I want to sell it because I already have a car. So no second one needed.
If you want to see pics of the suv you can go at http://s1354.photobucket.com/albums/q693/ToyotaLandCruiserFJ40/?albumview=slideshow
For questions just e-mail me.

Sincerely,
Jenny

My reply:
Hi Jenny...
Would it be possible to get the VIN number on the Land Cruiser?? This way I can have everything in order for when I come see it with cash in hand if everything checks out.

Second email:
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 truck 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 try out 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

My Reply:
So how would payment work??

Third email:
we would go through Amazon

Next email I received was an invoice from Amazon with a fake 866 number and invoice.
I contacted Amazon to see if the deal was fraudulent and there was no such invoice or 866 number or Amazon warehouse 38 where the SUV was supposedly stored.
