Default Gotta be a scam right???

http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcy/536074170.html

i was thrilled lol, then i sent her an email...this is what she sent me back...

Hello,
My name is Ingrid and I am glad you are interested in my 2002 YAMAHA RAPTOR 660R Limited Edition listed on Craigslist. It has a 660cc engine with 256 original miles. The quad was rarely ever used and is in great shape, clear title, no need for additional repairs, no engine problems. I will include all receipts/paperwork along with the quad.

I want to let you know all the details of the transaction from the beginning to make everything clear.

Since I'm very busy, traveling a lot with business, I have chosen the eBay Shipping Center program to take care of all the proceedings, so the quad is right now in their possession in a warehouse in San Jose, CA from where it will be shipped by eBay as I had to go abroad for a business seminar and I deposited it there to do this deal in the meantime. Beside shipping the quad eBay will act as the middle man - holding the payment until you receive and inspect the quad. You will have a 3 days inspection period.
I paid all their fees, the total price is $2150 (including all the shipping costs). The transaction will be backed by their program. Please note that the quad was listed on Craigslist.com and not eBay! I am just using the eBay protection program offered by eBay.
Now, if are serious and want to close this deal email me back with your name and shipping address and I will provide them to eBay, in order to the secure transaction over eBay.

Sincerely,
Ingrid McLeod



What do you guys think???

I would back out of that one. It's also listed in Honolulu. Many of the scam ads are placed in Honolulu for some reason. Run a google search on the exact title of the ad.

Scam, scam, scam, scam. When you go to pay for it, there will be an issue paying through Ebay and they will request a check. Ran into this a number of times. Never fell for it......yet.

Ask Ingrid if she's related to Connor or Duncan.

Scam for sure!

I had some guy call me up to rent my house, said he was from canada and he had a manager, would be working all over Michigan. Told me that he would send me a money order for 6 months of rent, and a security charge, but he had to pay his agent too. Wanted me to cash the money order and send the other 3000 to his agent in alabama. Wow, what a tool. I just cashed it and kept it, screw his agent. lol, jk

my god someone is trying to get me in another one, i thought this one was weird bc it was a 07 700 raptor for 2,450 and he emails me this bullshit haha

Hi,
Raptor is available ,it s in excellent conditions absolutely no issue,clear title.Price is 2450$ delivery from Chicago included.Location shouldn t be a problem as i am using monebookers services so i can sell the atv easily.It is curently stored at their warehouse in Chicago .All i need from you in case you decide and want to buy is the delivery address.
As soon as I receive your info, I will forward it to MoneyBookers, they will start the transaction and notify you with all the instructions (payment, shipping, my account status etc.) One of their agents will be assigned to handle the payment. You will have a 14-day return policy, so you will have the chance to test and inspect the machine and decide either you keep it or not. If you decide to keep it, they have the power of attorney so they will transfer the title into your name and release me the funds, if not they will be responsible for the return shipping and you will have a complete refund within 3 days.
Anyway, they will explain you detailed the entire process
Looking forward for your reply,


huh sound familiar geez wtf
