Hello ,
Thanks for your email !ca
First of all I want to tell you that I'm not located at home,in Las
Vegas,NV where the jeep is.Because of my job I have to move all the
time. The price of the jeep is $3,500.00. I know it may seem low, but
I find it reasonable. I have no use for the jeep anyway,due to my job.
I have a clean title ready to be signed. The jeep has no electrical or
mechanical problems. We can use eBay Safe Pay to complete the
transaction. The deal will go strictly according to eBay rules and
policy.
In order to start the official transaction, I need to know your details:
-full name and shipping address
As soon as I have them, I'll start the official procedure and eBay
service will notify you about this.I'll handle the shipping, so this
will be free of charge for you. We will use eBay Safe Pay to manage
the payment because it is the safest way for both of us and also you
will have 10 days to inspect the jeep before I receive the money.
Also,a refund policy will be included.

1997 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 35" BFG Lift Hard & Soft Tops
Mileage 91,000
Body Convertible
Exterior Color White
Interior Color Tan
Engine 6 Cylinder 4.0 Liter
Transmission Automatic
Drive Type 4 Wheel Drive
Fuel Type Gasoline
VIN 1j4fy49s7vp513351

So what's the scam? Are they asking for bank account info and stuff like that?

they send you a fake check for more than the asking amount then ask you to send them back the extra money... if youre dumb and fall for it.. you get F-ed in the A when the bank finds out about the check and you have to pay the money back to the bank.

Yup, A guy wanted to buy my 03 Focus that way. I e-mailed him back to have him or his representative meet me in Waterford at our Credit Union and never heard back from him. That was a shame too as I was going to have someone from the local Law Enforcement Auto Theft unit there. That would have been entertaining.
