Default Scam???

http://lansing.craigslist.org/for/576461536.html

I came across this ad, sounds too good to be true. I emailed the guy and this is what I get back.

From: Scott.Sulivan@live.com

Hi,
There are 518 miles on it, the ATV is in great condition, has been properly maintained and never been flipped or wrecked. It has a clear title and the price I`m selling it for is $2980, which is including all shippings charges.
I live in Lansing but I`m currently working in the UK (London) and I`ll be staying here for the next approximately 7 months, anyway I`m using MoneyBookers services so I can sell this ATV without difficulty. I left it at their warehouse before leaving to the UK. They will take care of the delivery with a 14-day return policy so you will have the chance to test and inspect it before final decision.
If you want to purchase it, let me know and I will explain you how MoneyBookers works and how we can move forward.
I am waiting your email.
Thanks.

I'd do it. Seems really legit.

Most people leave atv's in random warehouses when they go to the UK, and then decide they must sell.

They way it sounds is that the quad is located in the UK as well. The Moneybookers website only operates in Europe. I think I will let this one pass.
