Mia was supposedly selling a Toyota Highlander for $8600. Here is a copy of the emails she sent me:

Glad to see you want the SUV. Here are some details about it: very good shape, no known mechanical issues, without scratches or dents, and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents. The mileage is 88,107, automatic transmission, with an 6 Cyl 3.3L engine, AWD, light green exterior and tan interior. I legally own a clear title, free of any liens or loans, under my name. The price that I\'m asking is $8,600. Just want to sell it ASAP, so I am using Google Wallet as my ex-hubby suggested, he also sold his bike, without any headaches!

As I was saying I recently got divorced, and moved to Lincoln, NE with a job for a new start. The SUV is already at the shipping company here in town, crated and ready for delivery. You have free delivery, the SUV arriving at your place in 4-6 days. You get 5 days to try it out before buying it, and if you don\'t like it, you can send it back at my expense. If interested, e-mail me your whole name and ph#, and I will forward it to Google Wallet so they can send you more details on how this works.

Found ad posted on Craig's list about a 2007 Toyota Sequoia. I sent an email with questions and received the following response:
ME: I wanted to get more info about the 2007 Toyota Sequoia you listed on Craig's List. Can you tell me how many miles are on it and the VIN so I can run a Car fax on it? Why are you selling it? Can we stop by and see it?
RESPONSE: Glad to see you want the SUV. Here are some details about it: very good shape, no known mechanical issues, without scratches or dents, and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents. The mileage is 53,759, automatic transmission, with an 8 Cyl 4.7L engine,VIN: 5TDZT38A47S298783, white exterior and tan interior. I legally own a clear title, free of any liens or loans, under my name. The price that I'm asking is $8,300. Just want to sell it ASAP, so I am using Google Wallet as my ex-hubby suggested, he also sold his bike, without any headaches! For questions just e-mail me.
Sincerely, Mia
ME: Can we stop by and see it? I see your ad was posted in Des Moines but the title shows it's registered in Mobile, AL.
