    I don't think it's a scam so much as they meant to say $14,820

    Usually you have to reply to the email address in the posting, which is why I brought it up.

    Hi,
    I am selling this car because my battalion has been sent back to Afghanistan and don't want it get old in my backyard. The price is low because I need to sell it before March 25th. It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn't been involved in any accident...I do have the title, clear, under my name. The TACOMA has 54,000 current miles VIN# 5TEMU52N66Z146326.It is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $4,820. The car is in Lakewood WA, in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back.Below are the car details, also link with more photos and copy of Carfax report.If the link doesn't work,copy and paste it into a new browser page.

    Just got it, so none yet.
    What would they say if you said you're in Lakewood so there's no need to ship? I guess that's when they stop replying to the emails.

    Haha I don't know why but I love seeing what these guys come up with! He's probably going to say he'd rather ship because he's scared of getting scammed. :rolleyes:

    update!!! I'm going to continue to tell this person i want to pick it up in person. See where it goes.(and yes im bored so this is entertainment)

    MY EMAIL BACK TO SELLER
    Ok thanks for the info, I have an uncle in Lakewood WA that said he could pick it up. He wants to take a look at it tho. Whats the address where it is being stored?

    SELLERS REPLY
    Hi again,
    As i told you, at this moment I am in WA state in a military base, getting ready for Afghanistan (I hope for the last time). I do a special training program everyday day and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or make calls whenever I want. The shipping will take 3 to 5 days depending on your location and it’s not a problem because i have considerable discount from eBay and I can do it at no cost for you. As long as I'm dealing with eBay and they can ship the vehicle anywhere in the US,I listed the car in several states because it increases my chances to get it sold much faster. I want to mention that the vehicle was inspected by eBay and fulfils the CO Emission standards from all the 50 states so it wouldn't be a problem for you to register it in your state. You will receive the car along with all the documents including title, bill of sale, 2 set of keys, full service records and more. Because it is a large transaction, we will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like eBay because I already prearranged the whole process with them, using their escrow Safe Pay Program for vehicles not listed on their website. The car is located in the eBay warehouse in WA (ready for delivery). I asked them to allow viewers to go there and inspect the car but their reply was: "We are not a showroom!" In this case, I will offer a 5-day period to inspect the car from the moment you receive it, before I'll have your money. I think this is more than fair for both of us.The payment will be handled by eBay Escrow, and you will benefit of 5 days inspection time period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the car on my expense. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info to eBay and they will notify you about our deal. Like this you'll be able to talk directly with them and ask all you want to know.
    Regards!!
    Carol
