Default Thought I found a deal

Found this on Craigslist. And as usual if its too good to be true its a scam
http://detroit.craigslist.org/car/616686793.html

I figured maybe it had like 300k miles or something for the price.

Then I get this email

Hello,
My name is Sgt Samuel Bend, I work in US army.
First of all I want to thank you for your recent interest in my 1999 Ford F250 4x4 Crew Super Duty.
The truck is in absolutely perfect condition, no scratches,no engine problems or other imperfections. Never suffered any accidents. The price is $5450 with shipping included. I'm selling the truck at this price because I opened a new retail business one year ago and it's taking more money than we expected.
The truck is in Norfolk, VA.
Usually shipment takes maximum 2 to 6 days depending on your location and will be fully insured against damages, shipped in a crated container.....on my cost!!
As a shipping career I will use World Transport, all the shipping/handling and insurance charges are included in the sale price. You will get the package with all the papers, clear title, bill of sale signed by me as well.
If you agree with my above terms, I'm sure that we can close the deal as soon as possible.
I will wait your email.
Regards

So I emailed him and asked how he wanted to handle the money transaction.
Still waiting for his responce.

Oh and he said it only had 84k miles. So it is listed at 1/3 of what it should be listed for.
