here is the latest ad in this chain. The text is their letter to me after I asked how much the trailer really was..the craigslist ad said 2800. Yeah.. for a 31 foot 1996 Excella. ..sad she or he drags the Iraq vets into the mess ...I got a couple of nigerian scams in the email at the same time. Fun.

My name is Trisha, I am emailing you regarding the travel trailer that I have for sale.
The Airstream trailer is absolutely perfect, never got any repairs,clear title and it has never been involved in any type of accident.I`m selling only for $2,800 as i want to sell it fast.
I'm selling my son's trailer, who died in Iraq four months ago and I want to get rid of it asap because the sight of it makes me think of him often and often and the pain is too great. Put yourself in my shoes and you'll do the same (selling the trailer of your dead son, no offence)..!
The payment will be made through eBay protection program and only after you will receive the trailer, I will receive the payment.Below you can find a link with some pictures.
I will wait your answer(if you are interested in buying it) very soon.

My pet hamster died in my 31 foot 1996 Excella. The pain is too great to even look at the trailer now.
It's with great sadness that I must part with this wonderful trailer that has been in my family since new. It's only been camped in while in a pole barn and has never left the building. It's showroom perfect and as the tears stream down my face I must offer it for the mere sum of $2800. Please don't be alarmed by my Nigerian email address. I spent a great deal of time there with my pet hamster doing volunteer relief work.
Thank you and god bless

sorry the hamster death was a deal killer for me. I have options on one where they are throwing in a live pair of wabbits.

1996 Airstream Classic Excella 1000 - $2800 (columbus)

Reply to: see below



This is a beautiful, Clean 1996 30' Airstream Excella Classic with LOTS of new/updated features and in great condition! It is a 6-Sleeper with queen size "walk around" bed and side-by-side bath area. This is just a sweetheart of a trailer, if you see it in person you'll want to take it home with you! The sofa and dinette have been newly upholstered, and are like new (pictures don't do it justice- the colors are much better in person). I have the original manuals, LOTS of paperwork, and maintenance records to go with the trailer. Please look at all the photos, they describe it better than I can, it is a VERY nice clean trailer!! For any additional questions I can be reached at : trisha.anderson42@gmail.com



This is the message I received back after asking where the unit could be seen.

As tempting as it is to send these "Guys" an Email reply....sarcastic and otherwise, your screwing yourself. All they are doing is collecting your addresses, and sometimes your Email contact lists, for their use or to sell to other Spammers. A good source for Malware too. Just ignore these guys.

I guess I should have, but I got a laugh on the last email- "the trailer is sealed and ready to ship from Kansas as soon as my funds clear through Ebay". Sealed , huh?

Here's another one from Craigslist NY that got me going. It's still up on Craigslist so don't fall for it. Seller/scammer also insisted on Ebay because it was so secure. I said no, I'll come to see it and never heard back.

Tipoff was another ad for a 2006 Bambi that was $27,500 and had the same photo - it was an earlier ad in Criagslist.

Funny how they keep repeating the $5800 price over a 2 year period of scams.

Dream on
Dave

Bambi Scam hits Oregon- beware

Hi all,

Our Eugene, OR Craigslist had a 2004 Bambi listed for $5800. We contacted out of curiosity and suspicion about the ad. They did not want contact through Craigslist, but through their email: mclark40@msn.com

This email address has been linked to 2 other scams involving "tragic moves, deaths in the family", and having to sell vehicles (tractors) for half of the going rate. They offer to do the sale through EBay because it is 'legit'.

Right now they are saying the Bambi unit is in NY, NY and would ship for free to us in Oregon. They even sent pictures, which were different than those that were in the ad. SCAM SCAM Scam, I googled their email address and came up with reportings of their other scams.

Please pass the word around- it is listed in some places as a 16 foot Bambi, others as a 19 foot Bambi. They pull the add after 24 hours so it is hard to track. If you would like to see our email exchange, please email me through AIR.

Andrew
