    Saw the same pics posted in the Daytona area autotrader, interested I e-mailed and was told

    A reply I got then had this,
    Sure......so let me just send you the cash and have you ship me a truck that was listed as being in Orlando when it's actually in Colorado.... I was born during the day but not yesterday.... BTW this scam was asking $5,000 guess they are reducing the price in time of economic trouble...

    With that being said, I put my math skills to work and have concluded that your ATX punisher rims are worth about $17. Paypal sent

    I ran across an eerily similar "deal" on my local Craigslist for a very nice Tundra advertised for a stoopid-low price. When I emailed the guy, he said he was in the Navy and located in Spain (and so was the Truck) and it would have to be shipped - that I'd have to deal through eBay and I'd have 5 days to inspect it once it arrived. When I pressed for more details (like the name of his unit and/or commanding officer or someone who could verify his identity and story) he stopped responding.

    haha the email i got back said this.

    Hi there! I'm glad that you contact me. If you are interested in my 2005 TOYOTA TACOMA DOUBLECAB AWD , please read the next details about it. I'm the first owner, it has only 50,500 miles, with no accidents, so the truck it's like new. It has a clean title It is fully loaded, looks & runs great. Maintenance records available, never smoked in it.
    Still smells like a new truck! Tires and brakes are in good condition. I service every 3K with Castrol oil. This is not a flood vehicle.
    Overall, the physical condition of the truck shows that it was well maintained down to the tires and it was mostly highway driven.
    This is a garage kept vehicle. The engine on this vehicle is running properly. Absolutely no rips, dents, odors or abuse. There is no lien on it.
    I recently moved here in North Dakota, for studies. And the truck is here with me. I'm selling it only for $4000 because I need money very quick to pay my college fees.
    I can ship it to you if you want, anyway the shipping fees are included in this price.
    Please contact me ASAP if you are a serious buyer.
    Thanks.

    He told JahFtb it's his divorce settlement. Must be some cheap college fees

    When I was looking for my truck I saw a few of those ads on craigslist. Real low price on a cherry low mile vehicle. Always out of state or country. Shipping included in price. LOL, Guess, there is a sucker born every day.
