This is about a VW bus ( of which I am fond of as well as all old VW's)
Last night there was an incredible split widow double cab on Ebay for a buy it now price of $6300 (24 hour sale). I'd seen it before. Last time it got up to $14,500, and didn't make the reserve. Obviously it was some sort of a scam, but I wrote the guy for more info anyway. Here is his response:
Thank you for your e-mail. My name is John Black and I am glad you are interested in my 1969 Ford Mustang Mach I Cobra Jet. Well, I have to let you know that the Ford is in perfect shape and it has a clear US title. The car runs great. The car has no flaws, scratches or dents, it is in showroom condition. Because of my work I had to move in Lisabon, Portugal 5 months ago with my family and I took the car with me. The price that I hope to obtain is $8300 US ( the car worth lot more then the price that I'm asking, but is it registered in US, and I need to sell it fast because I have urgent need of money, I have some loans that I have to pay at my bank until the end of the week,and also registering it here will take much time ) and if you agree with this price we can start to complete the transaction. The car will be crated and shipped with FedEx 4 days air insured, but if you prefer DHL or shipcargo.com or other service please let me know. I usually use FedEx and I never had a problem or long delay. I will cover all shipping taxes,the actual shipping and handling as well as insurance charges to your door. I accept a refundable ( in case that you don't like the car of for some reason you don't want to keep it but I'm sure that this won't happen ) deposit of $2500 US, and as soon as I check that you deposited the prepay I will send you the car. After you will receive the vehicle and check it, you'll have to deposit the rest of the money in maximum 10 days and I will send you the title for it. I prefer money order because in this way I will ship the car in the same day you deposit the prepay. Please send me an email if you are interested in purchasing the product and I will send you an additional e-mail with further details.
Oops, wrong car John..
Doesn't ebay do anything about these people?
