Hello,

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my two 2005 Honda Rincon and trailer, I am selling them because I am in the military and my unit will be sent back to Afghanistan. I don\'t want them to get old in my garage. The price is low because I need to sell it before March 15st. The quads are in pristine condition, no accident history, clear title, no dents or dings and no scratches. Always adult driven and garaged, never abused or raced. If you are interested, they are still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is $1950. The quads are in Fort Jackson, TN and in case they get sold I will take care of delivery. Let me know if you are interested, email back.

Engine size: 650 cc
Transmission: Automatic
Hours: 87 and 102
Drive train: 4-Wheel drive
Vehicle title: Clear

Thank you !
Corporal Melinda Stokes

Hi again,

Right now I\'m in a military base. We are training, getting ready for Afghanistan. I am only allowed to check my email twice a day. We have to stick to e-mail for now. Hope you can understand. Like I already said, the delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have them there at your home address within 2-3 working days. They will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the Yahoo\'s buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask Yahoo to send you the details on this deal. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for Yahoo Finance (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can get the ball rolling.

Also I made a photo album with the atvs: http://img202.imageshack.us/slideshow/webplayer.php?id=56611024.jpg

Thank you.

Corporal Danielle Auletta EVerything she (they) said wasn't ringing true. we rec. several emails thoughout the day after she said she was only able to check her email 2 times a day. She was never willing to let us speak to her or anyone else about the deal and was in a big hurry to get it done. I am so glad I starting reserching some things on line. Found many scams using the EXACT same wording she was using in her emails.

Scam Email
I did some looking on yahoo protection plan, then i typed in the web address from image shack that she said above. but it wouldnt come up on my phone so i did it on my computer and there she was < every thing the person said before me on the report was the same except for her name , the location of the 4 wheelers and the price was 1900.00 in stead of 1950.00. this person needs to be stopped! in the previous scammer report she was melinda stokes. email was melindasok1@gmail.com Unless she reads this i will post what she does next, im waiting for her to send me info from (yahoo for the details)
