Well, as I've previously told you my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan. Right now I'm at Nevada Army National Guard. I am only allowed to check my email. We have to stick to email for now. Hope you can understand. The vehicle is here with me at the base and the delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address in 2-3 days. It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the eBay motors and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask eBay to send you the details on this deal. If interested just email with your legal name (for the bill of sale) address where you want the vehicle delivered and phone # where you can be reached, so we can get the ball rolling.Then you will be able to talk with them directly and ask all you want to know.
Thank you and God bless !
Hello,
Sorry for delay,my name is Rebecca,happy to see you are interested in my 2001 Ford Ranger.Let me give you a few details about it. Really good shape, never had any problems with it, no scratches or dents, Non-smoker, 82,823 Mileage, automatic transmission, 6-Cylinder, 4X4, VIN:1FTZR15U31PA04339, the title is clear in my name.
The price was reduced at $1,500 FIRM. Here are all the pics i have http://imgur.com/a/a2SI8 hope you'll like it.
I'm selling it so low due the fact that my medical team will deploy back to Afghanistan on April 28th 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.
Sincerely,
Senior Medic Sgt. Rebecca Engler

I received a message from care.com from a lady looking for a dog sitter and errand runner. She told me she was sending me a check to pay for her funiture and get her house ready for them to move. When I went to deposit the check from her, the bank told me it was fraud. I done exactly what they told me to do with her and she said exactl what they said she would say. I have a LOT of text messages and emails from her, including the check and the package it came in but it doesn't let me upload it on here

Same as most I was so trusting. She Offered me and extra 100 to take down the add and sent a check for 1700 via usps. Saying to deduct my share and send the remaining to a 'mover'. Sadly I put it in my account unaware of this type of scam. Luckily I came to my senses and called my bank to cancel the check before it had a chance to effect my bank account. These people are scum it's so sad.

The above people sounds like they are a group scamming people into cashing bogus checks. They agreed to purchase item for cost about $300-400 for each item. They insisted sending certified checks. However the amount of the checks way exceeds the asking price. I asked a couple of people why so much money, they said the rest of the money was for delivery of item. I ??? The amount for delivery, you can go to local computer stare and bye these items. Just sounded scam scam to me. I have received 5 of these checks that I voided and sent back to issuer. Besides all the emails has similar text style.
