The details of this scam are nearly identical to the tips re: 2006 Black Toyota Land Cruiser and the 2008 Harley Davidson. \"Anna\" has recently moved to Linclon Nebraska for a fresh start after her divorce, and has her 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LTZ for sale for $7900. Says her \"ex-hubby\" sold his bike this way, with no headaches. Says it\'s in perfect condition, no accidents/mechanical issues and only 67,327 miles, a clear title, free of any liens or loans on it, under her name. Even gave the VIN# 3GNFK12Y27G268980 that I looked up and shows an Avalanche. Says, \"the reason why I am selling it at such a low price, believe it or not is because I already have a car of my own, which I am very fond of. I don\'t want to let it go, so I decided I should just sell this one.\" Also says that it\'s at the shipping company ready to be shipped to the new buyer and that Google Wallet will hold your funds until you release them to her. Says you can even try the car for 5 days before buying and if you don\'t like it send it back at her expense. If interested, she wants your whole name and ph# and she will forward it to Google Wallet so they can send you more details on how this works. I assumed the ad/price was too good to be true, but wanted to follow up just in case. Once I brought this scam website to her attention and asked her to explain, I stopped hearing from her. Glad I did my research and didn\'t fall for this.

I was told the same exact thing with tip ref 8791 these are her exact words about two other cars. The email she sent me regarding a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for sale on craigslist and listed in south florida when she lives in Nebraska. These are her words in the email:
Its nice to see so many people interested in the SUV, glad you are one of them. Let me give you a few details about it: very good shape, no mechanical issues,no scratches nor dents, and it has never been involved in any kind of accidents. Has only 15,144, its automatic, with an 6 Cyl 3.8L engine, 4WD, silver exterior and gray interior.The sale price is $8,400. I have a clear title, free of any liens or loans on it, under my name. I'd like to sell it ASAP, so I am using Google Wallet as my ex-hubby suggested. He also sold his bike this way, without any headaches!
Please ask for anything you may want
Sincerely, Anna
This is another email: So I just got divorced and in need of a fresh new start, I moved to Omaha, Nebraska with my job. The SUV is with me, and its already at the shipping company, in a cargo container, ready to delivered to its future new owner. Using Google Wallet, you get free delivery, the SUV arriving at your place in 4 to 6 days. In addition, you also 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. I want to make it very clear, that Google Wallet will hold your money, and I won't be receiving a single dollar unless you call and tell them to release the money to me. 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. Here is the VIN 1j8ga69117l227810 and the reason why I am selling it at such a low price, believe it or not is because I already have a car of my own, which I am very fond of. I don't want to let it go, so I decided I should just sell this one. Please let me know if you need anything else, and if you want to buy it, send me your whole name and phone number!........
I checked the vin number out to see if there were any leins, accidents etc.. all checked out perfect. I then told her that I would go in person to see the car that is in the cargo container and she never replied back. I am worried that I gave her my full name and phone number. This person needs to be stopped.
