I had just listed my ad with RVT.com. About 3 days after the listing, I got an email asking if my RV had been sold. The person stated she was an \"oceanographer and the company did not allow the use of a cell phones\", so could only do email, PayPal, etc. She wanted to buy the RV sight unseen as a birthday present for her Dad. She offered to pay the full amount for the vehicle and also pay the PayPal fee along with the transport fee. Follow-up emails requested that I set up a PayPal acct so they could make payment that way. After I provided them w/my PayPal email, then came the email notifying me that the money had been sent, but before PayPal could finalize the transaction, I had to pay the person who was contracted by the buyer to transport the vehicle. When I responded requesting a copy of the driver\'s license of the buyer and the transporter, I never heard from them again. The emails from this person had a lot of misspellings and grammar errors..obviously not written by someone who speaks English as a first language (\"arias\" for areas). The transporter was listed as Terry Dunn 710 Southline Dr, Lebanon, Ohio, 45036, USA
