UPDATE: Thanks to Seth for verifying this scam. Here’s what the “seller” wrote to him:

I’m selling it because my husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories, that’s the reason I want to sell it a.s.a.p.The total price is $7,000. No damage or hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained. I have clear title, without liens or loans on it, everything is under my name. Me and my son decided to sell the house and we moved to my parents house in Twin Falls, ID trying to start a new life. We need to meet up to my parents place or I can arrange delivery – it will cost the gas money and I will pay for it.

I want to use eBay Motors services (5 days of testing prior purchase) for the safety of both of us, so if you’re interested in purchasing, please provide me your full name for the bill of sale, your full address and a phone number so I can notify eBay that you’re selected as my possible buyer, and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

The 1) hurry to sell, 2) sell via eBay, 3) paying for delivery are three warning signs of s scam. A 2015 eBay forum post discusses a similar scam.
