    I HAVE RECIEVED THE SAME SCAMM MESSAGE AS SHOWN BELOW.
    :Hello Daniel,

    You have to know that the 1993 Toyota Camry I am selling is 100% working and great looking, no flaws or dents, no scratches or any kind of damage. The title is clear. It has 78,000 miles, automatic transmission, leather and many options. This vehicle engine runs very very smooth. No electrical problems on this beauty. This detailed vehicle makes the exterior look like it just came off the assembly line. As I know that my current situation is pretty special I want the deal closed only through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program in order for you to be 100% protected. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and inspect it (for 10 days) eBay will release the payment to me; in this way we are both protected. Anyway i am sure that if you won`t be satisfied with the car i will surely find another buyer in your area and there will be no need for you to ship the car back. I am located in Athens, Greece and I was sent here to improve the military relationships between our country and Greece. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States because we are unable to register this car here because i would have to pay very high import/custom taxes. My final price on it is $ 1100. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping. It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. You will receive the car in about 4 days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

    Thank you and have a nice day,
    Steve Hudson

    Hello Daniel,

    I’ve received a letter from e-Bay that they have sent you the invoice for the car.
    Just wanted to be sure, that you received it and if you understood how to make the payment, and how to confirm it.
    I have one request for you when you are going to make the payment. Please
    inform the MoneyGram agent that you are sending the money to a relative or a friend of yours in Athens, Greece cause otherwise when i will receive my payment i have to pay 15% from the amount to the state here. I really appreciate if you can
    do this for me. It will help me a lot.

    Thank you and look forward to doing bussines with you.
    Steve

    Hello,

    Car specs: the VIN# of the car is: 1HGFA15828L010195 – clear title – actual mileage of my car: 32,000, Transmission: Automatic , A/C: Front, Cruise Control, Navigation System, Power Locks, Power Steering, Remote Keyless Entry, Memory Seats, Power Seats, Airbag: Driver, Airbag: Passenger,Alarm, Anti-Lock Brakes, Fog Lights, Cassette Radio, CD Changer, CD Player, Premium Sound, PowerWindows, Rear Window Defroster, Alloy Wheels, Sunroof/Moonroof, New Michelins, all service records available (All service completed at Honda Dealership).

    My car is in great shape, no engine problems, damages or hidden defects. It was always garaged and never smoked in.It has no scratches or any kind of damage.
    I’m a pilot on cargo flights. My wife broke up with me recently because I’m always away from home. We just sold our house and split the money. This is the last thing I need to sell and split the money with her.Because I’m away most of the time I will not be able to deal in person But I’ve already arranged the shipping and the title transfer anywhere in the US.
    At this point I am in London, United Kingdom at my parents due to my father’s situation, he’s going through a hard time with his illness.
    The car is located in Belvidere, IL, if you want to buy it. Also i can ship you the car for free anywhere in USA.I will have the car shipped from Belvidere by DAS (the car has been crated and is ready for shipping because the loan of my previous buyer didn’t get approved) so there won’t be any additional shipping costs.

    Full price is $2,600, shipping included, and all the documents will be provided along with it.The car will arrive at your door in 4-5 days.I want the payment to be handled by eBay Financial Department. They will keep the money until you will receive and inspect the car. You will have 10 days of inspection period. If the car is not like described you will have to ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. This way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money and you aren’t just fooling around. I want to tell you that I do not sell my car in payments and I do not trade.

    Giving the nature of this transaction please note that my sale terms are final and nonnegotiable. In order to move forward I will need your full name, address and phone number so i can register the deal at eBay Financial Department.After that eBay will send you the payment instructions.

    Thank you,
    Peter

    First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my ATV ( 2007 POLARIS RANGER). I sell it at this price ($ 2000 ) because i just finished the divorce with my husband. It has only 616 miles!!!The ATV is paid off,clean title,i have title in hand.
    The divorce has finished 6 months ago and the ATV is mine now. After the divorce I was forced to buy a new house. Following the financial crisis I can’t afford to pay the bank and I decided to sell the ATV. It has only been adult ridden and garage kept. As you can see by the pictures it is in excellent condition. I just had it serviced and put in a new battery a couple of months ago. This atv runs as good as a new one and has no dings, dents, or scratches.
    The ATV is located in DOUGLAS,GA, if you want to buy it.
    I’m very busy with my job and I’m out of town so I can’t meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my ATV over the Internet.
    From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services (I will receive the payment only after you receive and inspect the ATV and only if you agree to buy it).
    We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at eBay and I have a purchase protection account. The last price for this ATV is $2,000. I will pay for shipping and handling(the loan of my previous buyer didn’t get approved) so there won’t be any additional shipping costs).
    If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name and address for shipping so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
    I will wait your answer (if you are interested to buy) very soon.
