Scammer, Craigslist : 2001 Lexus LS 430 – price : $ 2900
Julia is a garden variety scammer. First, an image of all her postings of this vehicle, then her email to me:
Hello and sorry for the late response,
My name is Julia Parker and I’m glad to see your interest in purchasing my car.(2001 Lexus LS 430 – price : $ 2,900 )
What can I tell you in a few words is that I am an individual seller, I am not a dealer and this is my first type of posting using Craigslist. The car that I have for selling is mine , it is personal property and I am going to sell it because I was promoted to my work and in the same time they gave me a new car for work and moving for my needs. In conclusion, I don’t need two good cars for the moment and I decided, after a discussion with my husband (sometimes is very difficult to be persuasive, you know what I mean) about selling my car, because it is sensles to keep the car only to occupy the garage.
The final price that I want for this car is $ 2,900 , so let me know if you are interested so i can provide more details.
Here are some details you may want to look over :
Engine:8 CYLINDER 4.3 LITER
