    Hello,
    My name is Justin Frieds, I am emailing you regarding the 2002 Toyota Tacoma that I have for sale. The truck is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no scratches, no dings, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (NO SMOKING). It has 92000 miles, automatic transmission, 4 wheel drive. I have a clean and clear title for it. I'm selling my son's truck who died in Afghanistan and I want to get rid of it asap because the sight of it makes me think of him often and the pain is too great. As you saw the price is very good, only $6500.
    Thank you,
    Justin

    If you are local... you could get a few friends... and check it out. Check the truck. Do a VIN search for making sure it wasn't crashed or whatever. Check with police it ain't stolen. Then if all checks, buy your new ride for an awesome price.

    If it is a scam, well then it just a couple hours lost.

    If you have the time do some research and ask a million questions, things only a serious seller might know. Sounds like a scam and it would be awesome if you called him/them out on it. The more you ask the more you knnow if its a scam. Did he approach you?

    Ok that said, Im going to go redeem my money left for me at the Nigerian embassy, I just got the email. So First I have to just mail that check for $5,000 and then I start modding my truck with the millions i receive in return. Ill post pics!
