This is NOT a scam, and I happen to be an authorized payment alternative to clickandbuy. I am being deployed to North Korea soon, so please wire me US$2580 (pm me for details) and I will then send you your camper, via UPS overnight.

Come on, folks- use your heads.

My time is limited due to my job in the army so I decided to use a service from ClickandBuy. To begin the transaction I'll need your full name and shipping address,
These statements are all dead give a way's that this is a total SCAM>>>>

"...and you will have 5 days for inspection." So let me get this straight - he's willing to pay shipping costs to get the trailer to you and then gives you time to inspect it before closing the deal? Not likely.

I think it's either a way to get your personal information and/or your $2580.00. There was an identical scam about 2 months ago on the www.buysell.com website in Canada with a 2000 Safari for $6k being offered in Montana - same type of scam with third party, military connections, shipping included, etc... For fun I sent an e-mail back (also, these scammers don't give phone numbers) saying I have a friend in Great Falls who can look at it for me. He never emailed back. In fact, I googled the 2000 Safari and found the same trailer was on ebay from a Texas dealership! Same right down to the hail dings and pictures! I advised the dealership and they were going to call the police. Never did hear the outcome.

Too good to be true, not logical, too low a price, free shipping, too perfect condition, no phone number, third party seller = SCAM!

DONT DO IT!!! I just went through this same type of "deal" on a segway from craigs list. Price is too good, shipping too, third party, cannot have a phone # of the seller, or home info, I too told them I had a local friend to look and pay cash and then was told the price covered shipping and then the Segway was in Mesa, AZ. What a coincidence I have a friend there too give me the address and I will have them stop buy at your time and have a look. After that there was no response! SCAM there same thing here!!! SCAM DO NOT DO IT!!
Mike

Read this: Rip-off Report: Click And Buy And DAS Shipping CraigsList Car Sales West Chester Pennsylvania

Sound familiar?
"I am selling my _____________ because I'm being shipped out. It has a clear title ready to be signed and notarized on your name. I have the pictures hosted on the net and you can see them at :______________. .....clickandbuy, DAS etc....'


Scam

At his asking price, any dealer would grab it up, instantly.

I'm in Charlotte...

I work in Charlotte, and I'm willing to put some eyes on it if you need confirmation.

Tell him that I'm that friend and I'm armed.


Could even store it here at my office for a week or two if it really is legitimate.

I do leave town tomorrow for the 4th though.

I see SCAM written all over the place.....Did you ever notice scammers give too much info., they always have all the right facts in order, there seems to be NEVER any problems with the AS and the price is usually some weird number....like $2580.....the 80 is a good clue....something smells >))))@> y.

I was just looking at Craigslist and it has a banner at the top of the cars and trucks section that says:

"Offers to ship cars are 100% fraudulent" and it links to you their tips on avoiding scams.

So yes, it's a scam.
