    Be on the lookout -

    ===============

    Mike:

    Are you saying you will sell the truck for $23,0000? I think that is interesting since you don't even own the truck. I would buy it in heartbeat for that price. But first you will have to buy it from Mark and I think he want's a good deal more than that. The Land Cruiser community is small. If your going to try to defraud someone, perhaps you should try the Jeep community.

    Hi there,

    I've seen that you are one of my higher bidder on my auction. Recently my
    highest bidder due some personal problems changed his mind and decide that he
    cannot afford to buy my product. I decided to notice you, maybe you are still
    interested to buy it.

    If the answer is yes please reply as soon as possible.

    Also I have lowered the price, it is: US $23,000.00

    I'll take it. Go ahead and ship it to me. I'll wire you the money once I know it's on the road.

    Hello
    Thanks for getting back to me
    Here is how the process works so you can be able to receive and inspect
    it before i
    get payed. I already have it at the delivery company ready for
    imediatly shipping.

    - you confirm your ebay user id
    - I start a transaction on eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection
    - they send you the payment instructions
    - you send a deposit to them
    - they confirm me that they secured the funds
    - I deliver the product to you
    - you receive and accept the product
    - after you agree the product eBay will release the money and you send
    me the
    remaining funds

    If the product is not like described you will have to ship it back in
    30 business days
    on my expense and ebay will refund you the entire amount sent to them.
    I will be able to deliver using DAS Autoshippers for free in USA.


    Sincerly,
    Mike

    Every thing sounds good except for the deposit part. I have heard about scams before, and that makes me a little nervous. Once, I have confirmation that the vehicle has shipped to me, I will wire you the entire amount. Does that sound fair?

    Here's what I got back

    Let's see how far we can take this one.

    Hi there,

    I have started the ebay vehicle protection program case VPP-3078243, please follow the instructions
    from them and complete the transfer of money to ebay. Please note you are not sending the money to
    me, you are sending them to eBay. Once you will receive the product ebay will forward the money to
    me. The delivery will be started as soon you'll confirm the payment.


    Thanks
    Mike

    I like how he keeps referring to it as "the product".

    It's funny - in zambiziland or whatever eastern european country he is from, they must not be used to using the adverb "to"....

    ".. Recently my highest bidder due some personal problems..."

    "..- they confirm me that they secured the funds"

    He needs to learn english mo-better.
