I wrote to the guy too and here is what he wrote to me:
Before i can add you on my pre-approve list i just wanna let you know the terms of this deal.
The car will be shipped from Ullapool ,Scotland & i will cover shipping fees, since the car is shipped on a military cargo , all you have to pay for this car is the BUY IT NOW price ($5.300) . Will be shipped over sea to NY, from there DHL will pick it up and you will receive it within 14 days tops.DHL will deliver the car at your door.
The car is in perfect working condition , no damage,no scratches or dents,no hidden defects, and it is as advertised.You can see more pictures of the car here: http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/cute_farms/album?.dir=538f
,will be shipped with CLEAR US TITLE.
I work as a sergeant in the US army and i was deployted to work here in Ullapool for a while. I've brought the car here with me 1 week ago so i can drive it during my free time but i found out that i have to pay a large amount of money to register the car here, because it was purchased and registred in US and Europe emission regulations are different from US ones.
I only go home once in 8 months, it's a shame to keep a car like this garraged for such a long time .
If you are interested get back to me and i'll let you know the terms of this deal.
Thank you ,
Sgt. Mark Russell
So then I wrote him back saying I was interested and wanted the VIN # so here is what I got then:
Since i'm overseas i will only make this deal using ebay square trade services , this way
we are both protected.

Thanks and look forward to hear from you.
I love how they offer to make free shipping both ways. Thats usually the biggest give away to the scam.
Here is my final message to himand I want to see if he writes back:
Well, that sounds good. Here is the thing though and you let me knwo if this is ok. I only have a cashiers check from my grandmother who passed away and it is for $10,000. why don't I send you the cashiers check and then you send me the car. You can keep an extra $1000 for your trouble nad then you can just send the rest back with the car minus the price of the car. Is this ok?
