Scams

Ive had my Airstream 2013 International Sterling for sale for a few months now. Id like to start adding to this thread every time I get a scam text which is quite often. It involves PAYPAL and the buyer wanting to send money via PP and then send a shipper to collect the trailer. This is all via text, site unseen, and they refuse to call you. ITS A SCAM!!! The last one had this phone number: (231) 201-2571 and said his name was Jay. They disappear when u call them out.

Yup, standard MO. I get the same for nearly anything of value that you put up for sale on line.

Good thing is they are easy to spot.
A real buyer will make phone contact right away without all the texting games.
Just watched ours go out the driveway today from a picture perfect transaction, Good communication all along with funds wired into my account yesterday afternoon and Bambi picked up today.
It did take a few tries though with the last potential buyer calling me the scammer for requiring a wire transfer.

That might be a relief
All I get are the people worried about my automobile warrantee about to expire. I get a "final" call every day about 11:30 am. Blocked so many numbers but the still get through.
