Almost always sunny here unless there is a hurricane bearing down on you. And then it's time to hook up the burb and roll. So far I've been very lucky.

That price is way low for a trailer in that condition. I would be careful.

New Scam

Buyer beware of this scam on Craiglist with link to ebay. My friend got the emails below.


Hi,
The trailer is still for sale.It is in perfect shape.It has no scratches,dents and it was never involved in an accident or something like that.Here are some more pics
http://picasaweb.google.com/laurabksr/2006BambiAirstream?feat=directlink# . The title is clear and on my name.I am forced by a bank loan to sell it so I need the money and I must do that.Dont worry,the loan does not involve the trailer.
My final price is 5800.I already have some 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,i will make a private auction just for you on eBay so you can purchase it there.That way you will receive assistance for the purchase,paperwork, and the title transfer .They also are guaranteeing purchases up to 10.000 so we will both be protected.
Laura

Hi,
The trailer is already at a shipping company in Chula Vista-CA. 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 Continental US. I also have the trailer listed on eBay 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 2 days from the time you receive the trailer to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.
So please let me know if you are interested so i can give you the directions to the ebay site so you can check the auction.
Laura

Hard to believe that someone has used another sellers current sale to scam.

But check out this ebay sale look familiar?

Link to sale


The "SCAM" page really isn't a real ebay page. Try signing into on another ebay page. Then look at that page and you aren't signed in even if you refresh it. Although most of the another links work. I tried to find that $5800. Bambi on real ebay and it isn't there.

I replyed to an ad on craigslist in Providence RI for the Exact same trailer only $1 dollar cheaper. Even used the same pictures.

Here is their reply..... Says Scam all over it.


Date: Friday, January 23, 2009, 8:14 AM


Thank you for your interest in my 1994 Airstream Excella. You can see the pictures here: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/21418618
I'm located in Fort Shafter an US military base in Hawaii getting ready for Iraq, the trailer is here with me. If you can come pick it up would be great. If you can't, shipping is not a problem, because it's included in the price.
Address and pickup info:
Capt. Thomas Hesitane/ [USASOLS] United States Army Special Operations Logistics Squadron
U.S. Army, Pacific Attn: APPA Building T100 Fort Shafter(in Honolulu), zip: 96858-5100, HI. In case you can't pick up, it will be shipped by plane with US Air Military Cargo because I have some connections with US Airborne Division and the shipping it will not cost you anything. The trailer will arrive the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your home address. It will take around 2-3 days until the vehicle will be delivered to you. All documents, title, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the trailer.
For the payment I would like to use eBay's buyer protection plan as a third party. They will keep your money until you get the vehicle and will release it to me after the inspection period is over and you agree to keep the vehicle. To eliminate any concerns you will have 15 days to inspect the trailer before committing to buy, eBay will release the funds to me ONLY after inspection period is over and you agree to keep it. I'll start the official procedure, and eBay will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with:
- Your Full Name - Required by eBay (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.)
- Your Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Shipping company (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day before arrival of the trailer) Again I want to point out that because I am going to Iraq, I am looking for a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible.
Thank you

Somebody must have reported it because the link for the listing is flagged.

http://providence.craigslist.org/rvs/1003129583.html

When I replyed, I was actually expecting a response more along the lines of "this is a mistake and the Airstream is actually" (a lot more). Like I said, that is what I was expecting.
