Here is the answer to, "iz that a furm price?"



Hi I'm Britni,
The trailer is still for sale. It is in perfect shape. Here are some more pics Picasa Web Albums - Britni - Airstream . The title is clear and on my name. I am forced to sell it quickly because I need money to pay the mortgage on my home.
My final price is $ 5.800. I already has tons of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out. I will take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the trailer, to be sure that I don't waste my time with endless discussions. This way, I shall be assured of the serious intentions.

Thank you.
P.S. If you are decided to buy it now, I have made a private auction just for you on eBay so you can purchase it there. That way
you will receive assistance for the purchase, paperwork, title transfer and an extended warranty. They also are guaranteeing
purchases up to $ 10.000 so we will both be protected.


I replied......"need have info"

Do those photo's look familiar to anyone else?

What a coincidence... Britni is the one who told me to stop sending the emails!! :-) They always set up a gmail account and usually use a girl's name... not sure why. I wish there was a way to remove them all from Craigslist quickly, especially since they're so easily identifiable. I just hope no one falls for the scams!!!

Hey, have you looked at the header info from that email? might tell you a little about where they are doing this scam out of - you could report it perhaps to their ISP....

Craigslist flagging

These are probably better labelled as 'prohibited' as they're scams, not listings from an overactive seller. Want to see dozens of these? Go to New Brunswick, Halifax, or PEI craigslist in Canada where almost every vehicle listing, tractor, 4 wheeler is a scam. People should realize that if something is such a great deal, why do they have to post it everywhere when it would sell in their own state in a second? Some of these scammers work on their own, others are part of groups, some controlled by the mob. 99% of them live overseas, I've played with them from Romania, Hungary, Russia, southeast Asia, and a bunch in the UK! It's great all of us on here are flagging these scum, but I think what the internet needs is a company that can have their email addresses instantly removed when one of these scams is spotted. That would effectively remove the ability for unsuspecting victims to get in contact with them. If you forward info to AOL or Yahoo etc. most of the time they'll do nothing.......or it takes them too long to act upon it and by then it's too late.

Hi again,
The trailer is already at a shipping company in Las Vegas, NV. I took the trailer to them to be able to ship it to a potential buyer whilst I'm out of town. My brother in law works there, and he promised me that it will cost me nothing to ship it in the US. I also have the trailer listed on eBay View item and that lets me use their secured system. I'm very busy with my job and I'm sorry I can't meet you in person. According to eBay you have 5 days from the time you receive the trailer to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.

So if you really want it, press Buy it now on eBay . After you get the trailer you have 5 days to test and if you decide to keep it, eBay will release the money to me, if NOT they will refund your money and the shipping company will take the trailer back on my expense and keep it until I find a new buyer.
Regards Britni Griffin.

LOL That's hilarious! Tell us how the "live inspection" goes.... hahaha

I just used Craigspal to search again tonight, and they're at it again. This time they all seem to be 2004 Bambis for the usual $5800. I've found them in at least 8-10 states so far, and the search isn't even complete. Scary thing is, if they keep doing this, it seems that maybe someone's falling for it :-/

eBay Bambi Scam!@

Hi Guys,

My name is Don Shade and I am new to the Airstream community. In fact, I'm new to the Bambi eBay scam... I was the highest bidder on that 2002 Bambi which I've always wanted. Luckily, I joined this forum and found your thread... small world!

After winning the auction, I innocently sent the seller this email:

Quote:
Hello,

My wife, Meredith, and I are glad to have won the auction. I can come to Florida and complete the purchase in person this Saturday. Please let me know if this will work for you.

Best regards,
Don Shade
Boulder, Colorado
So does anyone out there want to sell me their 2002 Bambi? No scammers, please

Don

My wife and I almost bought the bambi last fall. I even spoke with the lady through email and she told me that she is divorced and broke. I asked if I could check out the unit and she told me that the unit is california with her brother. The deal seemed to good to be true!!!! I was almost suckered but decided to bail out at the last minute.
