MINI COOPER SCAM


From: "Ashley Johnson" <[email protected]>
Date: November 29, 2011 1:29:40 AM PST
Subject: Re: 2003 MINI Cooper Listing



I have a low price for my 2003 Mini Cooper S ($ 2,800
including delivery to your home address ), because I want to sell the car very
quickly. My husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and this car
brings me bad memories and that's the reason that I want to sell it. I along
with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in
Nebraska. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my
work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale.
If you are really interested in purchasing, please email me with your details
(name and address) for the shipping. The car is in perfect working condition.
Title Clear. Here are the pictures with my car:http://www.use.com/5e840b78c5c8d8573f20#photo=1

To:Hi there,
The car is still
available. I would like to let you know that I am the original owner of this
2000 Honda Accord EX sedan with leather that is in excellent cosmetic/mechanical
condition and meticulously maintained. It is not damaged, neither scratched, has
no dents or hidden defects; the engine starts, runs and drives very good. The
car has a clear title and it has never ever been involved in any accident. It
currently has 72,724 original miles on board with no mechanical issues, all
functional and it will need nothing in the near future.

I'm willing to
let it go for $2,000 and the only reason for the sale is that I need money asap
due a very difficult financial trouble. Obviously we will need a safe and fast
way to close this deal. The smooth solution is provided by eBay which will
handle the payment so we can do a safe money exchange and you have a grace
period of 7 days for the car.

Let me know asap and I will set up a
private listing with 'Buy It Now' on eBayMotors if you want to make an outright
purchase of it.

Please respond soonest - regards,

Please don't feel offended, but I don't meet
strangers. I will only conclude the transaction through eBayMotors in order for
both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them.

I hope you're not a
difficult person and you can take in consideration that the easiest and most
hassle-free way to complete this deal is through eBayMotors. The total price of
the car is $2000 and it'll even be shipped to your doorstep absolutely free. You
will receive the car along with a clear title, bill of sale signed by me as well
and all the papers (including the original manuals and keys) that you need to
register it under your name.

You are 100% protected since you'll inspect
the car personally or have it inspected by a qualified mechanic before any money
exchanges hands. Once you've inspected the car and you decided to keep it,
you'll confirm your decision to eBayMotors and only then they will re-route the
money in to my account, but if by any reason, you won’t be satisfied with the
car you can return it for free and you'll get full refund of your money.

Let me know asap and I will set up a private listing with
'Buy It Now' on eBayMotors if you want to make an outright purchase of
it.Please respond soonest - regards,
