Fund advertisement on craigslist for 2009 Nissan Maxima. Called the number and said it was text only. Got a text asking for email so she could send pics and additional info. Something made me pause and I googled her and found these scam reports. What a disappointment. The car sounded great 2009 Maxima with 88715 miles. Be careful of deals that sound too good to be true. The ad and her email sounded believable. Even said her son had died 5 months ago, it was his car and keeping it brought bad memories. In 2018, her advertisements said her husband had died.

Reached out via e-mail as instructed and received this response:
Hello,
Sorry for delay, the camper is still for sale, is a 2001 Scamp 13F that all runs and drives excellent, well maintained. It has 13ft. Slightly used in 100% working condition. The final price is $1000 (including delivery and handling to your address). I'm selling this because my father of only 63 years died 5 months ago in a car accident, the camper belonged to my father and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it. Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay motors.So if you're interested in purchasing this camper just reply to me with your full name, full address and phone number, so I can notify eBay. Once that is done, they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!
I then searched to see if it was a scam and found several warnings. I guess if it sounds too good to be true... it is! I am fortunate to not have lost any money but I am sure there are others out there who have fallen for this.
