1949 Jeepster West Goshen, PA **SCAM**

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This is a SCAM. This was a reply one reader received.

“I’m Janice, glad to see you are interested! The price is $13,100. This belonged to my husband and after he passed away I decided to sell it. I moved at my daughter because I had a throat surgery and I’ll stay here for at least a few months. I’m located in Sioux City, IA. I have signed a contract with eBay to take care of the selling on my behalf. It is already at the shipping company here in Sioux City sealed and ready for the shipping. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 7-9 days, depending on the exact location. You will have 5 days to try out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don’t like about it you can send it back at my expense.” 

It is similar to this scam: https://community.ebay.com/t5/Member-To-Member-Support/Car-sale-scam-I-received-this-message-after-inquiring-about-a/qaq-p/28221471

    Been trying to reach the owner, sure wish sellers would put a phone number on their listings. Many times craiglists emails get directed to receiptnatnts spam folder. John 847-116-9870.

    John,

    I’ve found this is especially true for Yahoo addresses. I’d suggest opening a gmail address or some other address and emailing Craigslist folks from that.

    Nobody “signs a contract with ebay to sell and ship on their behalf” and has it “sealed at the shipping company”
