Yeah dude, that is a good deal. If everything checks out (no accident, no rebuilt anything, no paint job), go for it!

Hi,

I made a mistake in the add, the truck has 74k miles on it.
If you are interested in buying the vehicle we will use eBay Motors Vehicle Purchase Protection since i have already left the truck in their custody. It's sealed and ready to be shipped. They will handle the transaction for me even though it is not listed on eBay. Shipping to your location will be made through eBay Motors Shipping Cargo, will be paid by me and will take from 3 to 5 days.
You will pay for the vehicle only after you receive and test it.

I'll wait your decision regarding my truck as soon as possible. If you want to make the deal, please send me your full name and shipping address so i can forward them to eBay Motors. They will reply to you with a letter containing all the instructions of payment and shipping, in order to complete the transaction.
Please let me know what you decide.

When I read this, I had red flag alerts going off. The deal just seemed too good to be true. I have seen scams on Craig's List. I enquired about a car and got an email reply about the car being shipped, military etc...

Would've been sweet if it were true.

1) ebay will never take possession of anything
2) no one is going to ship their car to someone without getting paid first
3) shop on craigslist for a little while and you'll know exactly when something is legit and when its not. Some scams are much more obvious then this one was.

just be careful. the scams work both ways, even if you try to sell something. one time i was selling something and i got an email from someone willing to pay 2x what i wanted so i could ship it to nigeria, i figured sure why not. i got an email with paypal logos and with @paypal in the senders email saying i had been paid. i was really close to shipping till i realized to actually log in to paypal to make sure i had been paid. sure enough, it was a fake email. even after knowing i couldn't tell the difference. again, just be careful.
