Default Have fun with this scammer

Sweet TJ though.

http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/ctd/2938349499.html

She emailed me this:

Hi Scott,
Please let me explain to you the process of this transaction and you can decide if you want to proceed or not.
As I told you in my first email, I recently lost my son. I also got a new job and moved to Topeka Ks in order to start over. I'm in Topeka but my presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with eBay. The truck is in Topeka at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the truck prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back at my expense. If you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name, address, and phone#.
Once I have your info I will forward them to eBay to get things started. eBay will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this
deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details.

I dealt with this exact same message on a motorhome I inquired about yesterday. I hate craigslist.
