Add in Facebook Marketplace. When I responded the seller told me she had posted for her sister and had no details. She told me to email her sister at I did, and "Laura Hosmer" responded with the following scam:
"Thank you for your interest in purchased my Bambi. The 2004 Airstream Bambi camper rv Travel Trailer is very clean, the exterior is good condition as well. The brakes have been checked and the bearings have been packed.The interior of the trailer is in excellent condition! All systems and appliances have been tested and are guaranteed to be functioning properly! (Sleeping Capacity: 4, Make: Airstream, Model: Bambi, Air Conditioners:1,Type:Travel Trailer ,Awnings:1, Length (feet):16, This bambi only weighs 2785lbs ) . I am the firts owner and I have titles for camper and trailer. If you decide to buy it, you'll receive all the papers, owner manual, keys and a buy-sell contract already signed by me. I have a low price ( $ 2,500 plus shipping cost $300 ) because I want to sell the camper very quickly. My husband died 3 months ago and I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister. Due to the fact I am very busy at work and don't stay too much at home I can't conclude this transaction personally. But I left everything prepared for the sale. The transaction will be made trough eBay Motors. This way you can receive shipping assistance, title transfer help, etc. If you are really interested in purchasing the camper please contact me asap.

Thank you!,

The initial listing has been removed by Craigslist, but beware - here is the response I got from Laura:
Thank you for your interest regarding my 1999 Airstream Bambi. The trailer is super clean, there are no dents in the sheet metal, no corrosion and no leaks. Small and light weight, but has all the comforts and amenities of much larger trailers. Kitchen with cooktop and oven, fridge/freezer, sink w/cover and sprayer, bathroom w/sink, toilet and shower, bunk and fold out sofa/beds, wall mounted TV/DVD w/remote, AM/FM Stereo, cold AC and toasty heat. I have a clear title under my name, free of any liens or loans. The price is firm, $1,800. I am selling it because my husband passed away 2 months ago (he suffered a heart attack) and I need the money to pay my daughter's college. We decided to sell the house and we moved with my parents trying to start a new life.Let me know if you are interested in buying it or if you have any questions.
Thank you, Laura
After that she sent lots of great photos and wrote: Hi again, As I have told you in previous email my husband passed away recently and me and my daughter had to move with my parents in Omaha, NE. At the moment they are the only ones I can rely on. The trailer is already at the shipping company sealed and ready for delivery. I decided to use eBay to complete the transaction because they can offer protection for both parties involved. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-3 days if you decide to go ahead with the transaction. Once you will get the trailer you will have 5 days to try it out prior to making any purchase. In the case you feel that the trailer is not suitable or is not as I described it, you can just return it with all fees being on my expense but I assure you it will not be the case. Along with the trailer you will receive all necessary papers to register it into your name including the free clear title which will be already back signed by me and notarized for the transfer. If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, simply reply with your full name, shipping address and phone# and I can ask eBay to get in contact with you to provide you more information on how to purchase it. As soon as I hear from you I will initiate the transaction through eBay and they will contact you right away and they will explain you the entire process better. Sincerely, Laura

Trying to sell Jet skies now, same scam pattern:
Thank you for your interest in purchased my jetskis. Pair of 2009 Seadoo Rxt 215, there are in great condition, they have 58 & 60 hours and run great. Jetskis come with 215 Hp rotax supercharged 4 stroke engine with close loop cooling system, which has lots of power and does not used ocean water to cool ski but its own coolant. The skis are completely stock. They are both 3 seater and come with both fast and slow keys(for inexperienced riders or children). I have free and clear title for the jetskis and trailer. Trailer is in excellent condition and heavy duty as well with big tires not the little skinny ones. I am the firts owner and I have titles for jet ski and trailer. If you decide to buy it, you'll receive all the papers, owner manual, keys and a buy-sell contract already signed by me. I am selling this jet ski because I am in the military and my unit will be sent back to Afghanistan. I don't want it get old in my garage. Also, the jet skis is too big for my daughter so there's no use on keeping it. The price is low because I need to sell it before August 12th. If you are interested, it's still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is ( $1,800 plus shipping cost $200 ). Let me know if you are interested, email back.
Thank you! Sgt.Laura Hosmer
AND, after asking where i can see those:
Hi again,
The jet skis belong to my husband but unfortunately he passed away 3 months ago. The jet skis is at the shipping center in Omaha, Ne and from there will be shipped to my buyer's address. The price $1,800 + $200.00 shipping for a total sale price of $2,000.00. Thanks 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 it there at your home address within 2-3 days. If you decide when you receive the jet skis that for any reason you don't want to keep it then you will send it back on my expense. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask eBay Motors to send you the details on this deal. You will also find in the invoice from them the eBay Support Department phone number where you can call for more details ! If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can get the ball rolling.
Thank you and god bless you!
