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
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.
