Thank you

Thank you for posting this alert.You saved me time and possibly money. I had just contacted a seller on Craigslist and received the below reply. -Debbie

Hi,

Sorry for delay, my name is Hector, happy to see you are interested in my 2010 Scamp 16 Deluxe Wood. Let me give you a few details about it. Really good shape, never had any problems with it, no scratches or dents, non-smoker, no pets, never lived in, 16 feet, 3 sleeping capacity, Water Capacity (Gallons): 11-20, 15k miles, the title is clear in my name. The trailer is in perfect condition for 2010 model. Don't need to invest any money on it. Was recently serviced. The price was reduced at $3000. I’m selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan on October 25th for 1 year contract and its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for 1 year so there’s no use on keeping it, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer.If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
Bellow I attached you some pictures.

Sincerely,
Senior Medic Staff Sgt. Hector Torres

Almost Scammed

If it's too good to be true... it probably is.

I searched the phone number (530) 691-0307. It came up as a scam on this site. It also went to google voice when I called it.

This is the e-mail that I got back from them.

My mother's gotten herself into a bit of a situation. The bank is going to foreclose on the house she's been in for the past twenty years if she doesn't catch up on her mortgage payments. They've given her two weeks to do this before they start the proceedings. There's no way I'm going to let that happen, so, the camper must go. If we can sell this for $2,400, we'll have enough to get her caught up.

Here's the deal though. The camper is in Toms River, NJ. That's actually where I live, too, but right now, I'm working offshore on an oil rig. It sounds like you might not be able to pick up the camper, so I could look into having it delivered.

You're Welcome

Your Welcome, Brenda.  Thanks for taking the time to add the additional info about how the scammer is operating.  If you get a chance, please edit your post and also include the email address that the scammer used in your email exchange. That will help for search engine purposes if a buyer decides to google the email address. (just like how you found this alert by googling the phone number!)
