What should I do?

I was searching on craigslist for a Jeep, and I came across one that I liked. I know of "spammers" in the craigslist world, and I can't tell if this is one or not. I'm not sure if I should respond or not.






I sent him a email asking if he still had it for sale, and this was his response.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in my car. This is a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Like new tires, good brakes, everything works, ready to go! Clean carfax no accidents. This Jeep is in exceptional condition inside and out and it has a clean title. Mileage 80,000.

More pictures at: http://s1119.photobucket.com/albums/k632/ray_rubiconjp/

The car has been well taken care of, always kept in the garage. Flawless exterior/interior condition,no scratches and no dents. It has never been involved in an accident. The engine starts and drives like new and the paint looks great.It comes with US clear title which will be signed and notarized in the buyer's name. Have all keys and manuals.

I'm an US Air Force Sgt. currently stationed in Alaska. The car is here with me.
The price is $2,980 including shipping from Alaska and delivery to your home address.
So if you decide to buy this car or need further information please get back to me as soon as possible.

Thank you
So, should I respond?

Yea, that last paragraph is what threw me off. I don't think a "real" person would do that or put it in that form.

It's sad what people do now days.

Well as an Active duty...Air Force Member.....This is a scam.

First give away.....(Sgt.)....We NEVER write Sgt....as that is an Army Ranking. We start with SSgt/TSgt/MSgt....and so on.

If you really want to play with him ask for his name and rank. I can look the name/rank up and call him.

Well, I just went back on craigslist, and I can't find it. He either got scared, or craigslist mods could have taken it off.


I see what you are talking about in the pictures though.

Yeah $2980 is about 10 grand or more short of what a 04 rubi sells for.

If it looks/sounds to good...always a scam.

Look at the price bud row. For around that price on a jeep u are gonna get one that is rusted out engine failure no tires or wheels on it. Oh, and it might look like it was ran through a car slammed. Use your head. My cousin has been held hostage by a group of terrorist in the middle east for the last 4.6 years. This is the type of work they have him do. Right scam listings for websites. I talk to him over the phone at least once a week.

Well, he responded to my question about his name and rank in the Air Force. HAHA

Here is his response

Quote:
Hi,


I will have the car shipped from Alaska by an US Air Force cargo plane so there won't be any additional shipping costs. Also I will arrange for a truck to transport the car to your home address or, if you like, you can pick it up from the nearest airport in your area. The shipping will take 3-4 days, depending on your location.Shipping will be door to door,to your home address,somebody must be home when the car arrives to sign for the reception.The car will arrive with all the papers and documents required for registration and the keys. The clear title and the bill of sale will be already signed by me.

The payment will be done through eBay.You will send the money to eBay and as soon as the payment is confirmed they will notify me to proceed with the shipping. I will ship the car, you will receive it and you will have 5 days for inspection, both the car and the paperwork and the option to accept or reject the car.The inspection time period will begin as soon as you sign for receiving the car at your requested address.During all this time eBay will hold the money into a trust account.So, this is not a blind transaction,you can see the car before decided to buy it.If you are satisfied with the car and decide to keep it you inform eBay about this and they will release the money to me. If the car is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the car will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for the both of us.Please take into consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the car and make sure everything is as agreed.

If you agree with these terms and you have the money, send me your full name and the address where you want the car to be delivered to and I will initiate the transaction with eBay. You will receive all the transaction details from them.

I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible.

Thank you
