This person goes by the name of Judith Powell from Craigslist. They reply with the emails below:
My name is Judith, and I’m emailing you about 2005 Honda Accord LX with an gasoline engine, automatic transmission and only 108,735 mileage. Never had or need any paint/body work done, garaged keep always, without any mechanical problems, tires and wheels are in great shape as well, electric is working perfectly. The engine 2.4L 4 Cylinder runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. Has a clean and clear title in my name and there are no liens or loans on it. This car was used by my husband who died 4 month ago. The price was reduced at $1,000 because I’m in a hurry to find a buyer. I need to sell the car quickly, I will be leaving on military duty with my medical team out of the country for a year and do not want to store my car. Hate to sell it but its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for a year. If you interested i can send you pics.
Hi again ,
As I’ve told you in my first e-mail, I’m in the army with my military medical team and right now I am in a military base. We are training, getting ready for leaving the country. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay services so my presence isn’t necessary. The delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address within 2-3 working days. It will come with a clear title and reg. You will have 7 days to test and inspect the car prior to make any purchase. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask eBay to send you the details on this deal. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can get the ball rolling.
Looking forward to hear from you !
The car is currently stored with all the paperwork at eBay warehouse in Omaha, NE headquarters, in the container,sealed and ready for shipping. I want to mention that the vehicle was inspected by the shipping mechanics and fulfills the NE Emission standards from all the 50 states so it wouldn’t be a problem for you to register it. You will receive the car along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, 2 set of keys, full service records and more.I asked them to allow viewers to go there and inspect the car but their reply was "We are not a showroom!" In this case, I will offer a 7 days period to inspect the car from the moment you receive it. You’ll have 7 days to inspect, test and drive the car before decided to keep it or not. If the vehicle is not like I described, you’ll ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. eBay Motors will hold the funds until you receive the car with all the papers work. Only after you confirm them that you wanna keep the car they will release me the funds. In this way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it.
I look forward to your reply!
