    Tamara Potery and Natalie Patterson both want to ship me 2 trucks from the same place. What can I do to bust these people.

    Joe, these “people” are in various international jurisdictions. Please see this article that describes their typical mode of operation. I encourage you to report all the attempted fraud to so that “your” cases can be aggregated with all the others by law enforcement.

    The car is in perfect condition, no electric problems, no accidents/liens/loans. No scratches, never been repainted. I have all the car manuals, title,documents. I’m selling this car because my child of only 19 died 4 months ago in a car accident,a drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. He was with his fiance’s car coming to our home at his little brother birthday of 10 years old. The car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that’s the reason I want to sell it. The last price is $2,100. Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay’s Buyer Protection Program.I just need your full name,full shipping address, home/cell # so I can open a case.(with no further obligation or fees).eBay will contact you with all the Transaction/shipping details you will need.We will take care of the shipping so don’t worry.

    Here you can see some pictures with the car:

    VIN: 2T1BR38E53C723532
    Body type: Sedan
    Engine: 4 Cylinder 1.8 Liter
    Exterior color: Gray
    Transmission: Automatic
    Fuel type: Gasoline
    Interior color: Tan

    Thank you for your interest!
    Elizabeth and Nick Ferguson

    Hello, my name is bill. I was looking on Craigslist and noticed your Toyota corolla you have for sale. If you still have the car I am interested in it, I will be attending SCSU this fall and can’t afford driving my truck. If you have time to get back to me that would be great.. either E-mail or call.

    The vehicle is well maintained, no damages or scratches. You will inspect the vehicle before the payment will be made. You will also receive all necessary documents in order to finalize the purchase. I am selling the vehicle under market value because I need to pay the mortgage. I recently moved in Glasgow, MT with my new job and I have the vehicle here with me. The shipping and insurance are included in the price because I won a promotion at uShip (1 free shipping). Email me back if you’re interested and have further questions.
