I also found an ad down in Georgia for the same jeep, same pics> 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Coupe - Cars
this is the craigslist posting> Wrangler 1999 SAHARA Amazing Jeep
And i thought the same "to good to be true" idea, so i started researching it via google images and sure enough i found the same pics and looked into the links. You claimed that your sister was in the FBI internet thing, and i would appreciate it if you refer this situation to her. SCAMMERS SHOULD BE PENOLIZED! reply to me via email billage101@yahoo.com thanks a lot.

ohsixlj I'm sure it was NOT a TSgt in the Air Force but instead some loser who uses our titles in an attempt to gain credibility.

ran into this same one..i am in the military and know people in Alaska.. told her/him that.. never heard back

hmiller i almost got scammed on a jeep as well..be careful just be glad you didn't send the money

BigDaddyAt It is still listed on craigslist now. The lady emailed me and said she moved to North Dakota (first tipoff there...what are the odds anyone would move to ND?, lol).

OP - If your sister is indeed looking into this, send me a message, I'd be happy to forward the email. Glad you didn't get scammed out of actual cash, your pride is recoverable

Badass_TJ wow.. I was on craigslist (Maine) and there it was for $3910... I sent a nice email and flagged the posting

Colin That ad with that jeep is always on craigslist. Usually they have it for 2700 in my area. Too bad it's a scam because it's one of the nicest jeeps I've seen.
09-24-2011 02:10 PM
repauli1 Also in the meantime i have seen this same scam several more times, which is good and bad, i have seen many people admitt they lost their money. But as long as these dumb asswipes keep posting the better odds of nailing them.

I would to have 2 minutes alone with an idiot like this, at least under 700 yards DPMS Panther style!
09-24-2011 02:05 PM
repauli1 Update, sis says they have been able to track ip back to source, now trying to dig down further into the layers of deception. Maybe get lucky, but probably from a country that doesnt give a crap.
09-24-2011 02:02 PM
repauli1 I never sent it, but was ready and willing, sis stpped me nicotime

LIV2GP repauli1,

Sorry to hear about the scam as these Jeeps can bring out the emotional side in us.

Thanks for posting your experience as I'm sure others will learn by it thus helping our community. No need to apologize as you did no harm to us, but IMHO actually opened our eyes to a real problem with purchasing via the internet.

I'm up in the NW suburbs of IL and am back to 2 Jeeps now after buying a 2012 JKU Rubi. Had a YJ on 1tons with an LS1 that I sold but kept my 99 Sahara for running trails.

Take care and wish you the best,

David

thejackcutts honestly i wanted to tell you that when i was looking for my jeep in the fall and winter of 10' i saw that jeep and knew it was a scam, if i saw this thread earlier i would have told you right away! its ok, i thought about a couple of scammers jeeps too then found out about the whole deal and can point out a scam just looking at the title.
just a little note for future if it hasn't been posted yet, if the title has an @ or a bunch of !!!!!!!!!!! or <<<>>>> or caps lock saying GREAT DEAL! L@@K @T THIS!
its a scam.... i had to go through stuff like that when i was selling my previous car to buy the JEEP!!!
09-22-2011 10:59 PM
Jeep_guy3 Before reading the last couple posts i was about to call bullshit... that same exact jeep was posted on the craiglsist in kennewick washington for $3995. we get shit like this weekly, best way to tell its a scam in my area is A. the low price and B. it will always have a gmail.com email address. sorry you got scammed and hopefully your sister can help put a stop to this nonsense
09-22-2011 10:52 PM

09-22-2011 10:15 PM
Plowboy1970 As soon as I saw the pictures I knew it was a scam. I have seen those pictures on Craigslist for the last month. Sorry to hear that you fell for it. If it sounds TOO good to be true.....it is!!!!
09-22-2011 10:02 PM
RCB Awww, man, sorry about that.

At least you weren't completely ripped off. Many people just lose their shirts. Too often, it's people that can't afford it.

One of the best ways I have found to handle internet sales have been to have friends from forums (not even forums related to what I am buying) go check something out in person. I usually pay them a simple fee (in one case, rum lol) and they go check the person and/or item out.

Of course, there are forums I have been on for years and years, but still.

A while back I was contacted by a woman (in response to a clist add I had placed for a vehicle). They had engaged me over a few emails. Anyhow, they were out of state of course and contact someone I knew from there. They agreed to go check it out, so I called her. Well she wasn't going to be home for a week. I told her no worries, I'll just wait till she gets back. Still wouldn't give me an address. So I knew something was up. I called her back the next week, no answer. Obviously a scam, but being able to get an internet buddy to check it out, saved me from wasting money driving.
09-22-2011 09:08 PM
fourty4magjr Yeah make sure everything matches up and if it ever says anything about moving and the jeep is left in some other state or anything of the sort it's a scam also if they say anything about shipping the vehicle. And well always remember if it sounds to good to be true it probably is. I'm so sorry for the new buddy, and good luck again
