Kawasaki Brute Force 750, Too good to be true?

I was looking around for a kawasaki Brute force and I stumbled across this
http://memphis.craigslist.org/mcd/2237839791.html
It seems too good to be true and I know the old mantra. But the words actually seem to match with what the pictures show. Normally scammers don't know shit about the items they put pictures up of. I sent the guy an email and asked for a picture of the undercarriage.

Total scam IMO, asking a fraction of what the true value is for a like new quad. I bet when you contact him he will have some crazy terms to the sale.

That seems way too cheap. Look at the motorcycle behind it in those pictures it looks like it had some roadrash and is missing alot of stuff....

Well, it's definitely too good to be true. Here is the email I got back

Denise Higgins

to me
show details 8:21 AM (9 hours ago)

Hi, First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my 4 wheeler ( 05 Kawasaki BRUTE FORCE 750 Automatic ). I sell it at this price ($ 1600 ) because i just finished the divorce with my husband. It has only 362 miles!!!The 4 wheeler is paid off,clean title,i have title in my name.Has only 85 hours,great condition and it runs and drives like new,has a automatic transmission with HIGH,Low and Reverse.The ATV comes with a Snow PLOW! The divorce has finished 7 months ago and now i have title in hand. After the divorce I was forced to buy a new house for my and my kid. Following the financial crisis I can't afford to pay the bank and I decided to sell the ATV.As you can see by the pictures it is in excellent condition. I just had it serviced and put in a new battery a couple of months ago.I am sure that you will love my 4 wheeler.The 4 wheeler is located in South Boston,VA, if you want to buy it. I'm very busy with my job and I'm out of town so I can't meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my 4 wheeler through ebay. From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services (I will receive the payment only after you receive and inspect the ATV and only if you agree to buy it). We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at eBay and I have a purchase protection account. last price is $1,600 and will pay for shipping and handling(the loan of my previous buyer didn't get approved and he already paid the shipping costs) so there won't be any additional shipping costs. If you are interested in buying it please provide me your Full Name and Address for shipping so I can initiate the deal through eBay. I will wait your answer (if you are interested to buy) very soon.<br><br> Linda Thorpe

anyway, this one looks more promising
