Thanks everyone. You've pretty much confirmed what I thought. And yes, the ad KJRitchie posted is the one I was referring to.

Ask for the physical address and tell them you want to come see it. That should remove doubt.

It is a scam... I responded to the ad as breathlessly as I could... for sure gonna buy it and I couldn’t wait to part with the $15K in my hot little hands.

Ivette Barnard was her name and the trailer was listen as being in Austin but contacting her, it’s in Phoenix but not to worry, shipping anywhere is included in that $15K price! Rjpuckett got the same initial email that I got.

I asked for her phone number so we could talk. She made it clear that any dealings would be via email only. When I told her I wouldn’t need shipping, I’d pick it up myself and deliver the money at that time, no response Ivette.

When I emailed her later on, the email came back “undeliverable” and the ad was pulled from the classifieds...

Maybe Ms. Barnard is off to scam EBay now?

Positively a Scam

Be glad you didn't waste more time or worse yet, sent a money order to an unknown address only to never hear another word.

Had no intention of buying it - was just trying to play them out and scam a scammer. Dangit though, (s)he folded before I could play my cards...

I purchased it! She also gave me a sweet deal on a Honus Wagner baseball card and Elvis's comeback leather suit. Thank god she took monopoly cash, or I would have missed out.
