BIG SCAM FOR A VEHICLE THAT SHOULD BE OVER $6,000.00 off CRAIGSLIST, SEE BELOW:
Hello there,

I\'m writing you regarding my 2003 Nissan 350Z. Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but because I received too many offers, I will explain all the details about the transaction.
The car is still for sale. My asking price for the car is $2700. It is a 2003 model loaded with everything. Currently the car has 48,000 miles, the VIN# is JN1AZ34D73T117248. The car is very well maintained, it has just been completely serviced. The engine runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. I\'m selling the car because I don\'t have time to enjoy it due to my job (I work as a casino dealer on a cruise ship) plus that I have some financial problems and I need money very soon. I have to tell you that I\'m currently at work and I left the car is currently stored with all the paperwork in Amazon\'s warehouse number 28 in Centralia, IL it\'s already packed and waiting to be shipped anywhere. If you decide to purchase it, you will receive all the documents of the car (owner\'s manuals,2 keys, clear title, bill of sale) in order to register it under your name. Regarding the payment, I will use only Amazon Protection program. If you are interested, this is how Amazon Protection program works:

The transaction will be made thru Amazon Payments because they can protect both of us and they also offer 5 days inspection period. You\'ll have 5 days to inspect, test and drive the car before decided to keep it or not. If the vehicle is not like I described, you\'ll ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund.

Amazon Payments will hold the funds until you receive the car with all the papers work. Only after you confirm them that you wanna keep the car they will release me the funds. In this way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it.




If you agree with these terms and you have the money, send me your full name, phone number and the address where you want the car to be delivered and I will initiate the transaction with Amazon Payments. You will receive all the transaction details from them (terms, buyer protection coverage, payment instructions, invoice for the purchase).
