There are a few things to looks for:
See how the add looks like a word doc? Scam
Scammers seem to like that teal/red color scheme.
If they don't give you a phone number or randomized email adress: SCAMMM

If you sent an email to them, you would get an email back saying that she was recently divorced and the Jeep is at her mothers house. You will do the transaction through ebay. She has an "in" with the shipping company so she can ship for free. I doubt they work but I guess those people thinks it's worth a try.
