Additional Info Regarding This Scam

Additional info provided by a person who inquired into purchasing this trailer:

This chick - she calls herself Felicity Dickens - is attempting to scam you into buying a Scamp Deluxe for $2,000 or so. This camper trailer is worth a lot more (I've attached the pics she's sent me).


Here's how it goes down: you email through Craigslist, she emails back asking for your real email as the pics won't go through as they are too large of a file size. She then sends the pics (shown here - first of all, if she has them they should be posted on CL...) and then gives you a whole long story (below if you care to read it). You email back (if you've gone that far) and she then tells you to pay through Google Payments and that she'll need your address, name, and phone number, which means you'll never see your money again AND she'll have your name, address, and phone number. 

FIRST SCAM "b****, I don't need a sob story, I just wanna buy your stupid camper trailer!" EMAIL:
I've got the camper for sale for $2,000. It's mechanically and electrically sound and has never been in an accident. It was lightly
used and no one lived in it full-time. The reason I'm selling is because I have to pay some long overdue bills with my mom's retirement home. She has late-stage Parkinson's and needs round the clock medical attention. On top of everything, I could not find a job for the past 8 months, spent all of my savings and maxed out the credit cards.

The camper's at my house in Farmington, NM. The thing is I'm not there: about 12 days ago, I obtained a position as a vocational
counselor for people with disabilities with the state of of New Mexico here in Santa Fe. If you're interested in the camper, we can agree on a date to meet at my place or I can deliver the camper in person.

The pictures are attached and the specs are bellow.

2003 Scamp Deluxe, 16' long, sink,hot water heater,fresh/gray/black holding tanks,new tires last year,new wheel bearings,new mini blinds. interior is in like new condition ,exterior has always been covered ,fiberglass in excellent shape, no cracks or leaks.toilet/shower, furnace, exterior cover is included.

SECOND SCAM EMAIL:
I've got a lot of inquiries on the camper. Many of them wanted to meet asap, but my job won't allow that: I need at least a 48 hour notice before I can take off. There is nobody back home that can show you the camper. As I said, we can work out a meeting day or I can deliver the camper for the gas money.

I'd like it if we could run the sale via Google Payments, because I agreed to meet with a buyer last week and he simply decided not show up. Google will hold the asking price allowing you to to inspect both the paperwork and the condition of the camper in order to make sure it's what you want before I have access to the money. If by any chance, the camper isn't to your liking - tough I really can't see a reason for that - you can simply request a refund. The refund time is less than 48 hours. (NOT HOW GOOGLE PAYMENTS/WALLET WORKS).

I used them before this year when I bough my car off craigslist. The owner drove the car to my house, then we had it checked at the local dealership. Afterwards, we headed to the local DMV and checked the title. Since everything came out fine, I released the money from the Google account and we signed the bill of sale.

To get things rolling with Google, please send me the buyer's full info: name, address/delivery address, and phone number. (SERIOUSLY!?)

Additional info reported:

"A woman is advertising a Scamp. She asks for your private email address in order to send pictures. The pictures come with a sob story about her mother being sick, and her getting a new job as a vocational counselor. The pictures are amazing...but I did an internet search for that year Scamp, and lo and behold, there's a long list of complaints about this scam from other states."

2003 Scamp

I inquired about the above camper and the subject gave me the same story about needing the money for her mom that was in the nursing home with Parkinson.  She included the same pictures that are posted on this site.  She also wanted me to use Google payment as the payment source.  The name she used is SusanzChandra @gmail.  Stated she was in Danville, Ky and the camper was in Richmond.  She also stated that she just got a got at the State.  The only information that I gave her was my name and telephone number.  I also stated that I was not going to use Google payment but that I would have cash and she has not relied back.  Buyers beware.
