this is so disturbing to wake up to. thanks again, for all the flagging everyone has done. i am very disappointed with craigslist for not taking more action and faster.
i once tried double posting in Los Angeles, Portland, and home area SF bay thinking that 'cool' that should cover the west coast what a great advertiser i am. Well, Craigslist system wouldnt even allow me to publish the posting because their system recognized the photos. ever since that attempt, i thought 'fair enough' i'll only posted in SF Bay.
my question to CL how is this mass plagiarism even happening? why havent they done anything? if its to help catch the guys or 'donna', then thank you.

Yikes super scammer is at work with all those listings everywhere. I tried to see a Bambi and the scammer said it's parked elsewhere, a zillion miles away, so I told her I'd fly to see it, I have a privet jet (not). POOF she disappeared. If I can't see it, there's no money available, is my motto.

some folks are emailing the responses after pursuing the trailer here is one with a legitimate email account. this should be traceable? and photobucket account. WOW!

Here is a copy of her first response.

ello Larry,


Thank you for your interest in buying our trailer. I'm selling it for $2,500. I wanted to keep the trailer but me and my husband left the city for a better job in L.A., so we decided to sell
it. The trailer is in showroom condition, no mechanical problems and never involved in any type of accident.It has a clear title and it will come with a new set of tires.We will use eBay
Vehicle Purchase protection to secure this transaction.

Here is a link with the pictures:
Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

If you are interested please email me back.



Donna's email is donna.l.flint99@comcast.com (I think Comcast is a Calif internet provider) and the CL email address is donna.fl37@gmail.com.

Why don't you send here an email and try to buy your trailer!

Good luck on your sale---Larry in OKC

here is more info from those who have pursued the scam to see how far they could take it:

Hey there - I got another phone number from the scammers -
here's what they sent in their last email:

Please reply with your complete name and shipping address in
your next email and let me know if you are interested in knowing
more details about this purchase so that I can open a transaction
at eBay and to move forward with this deal.After that they will
contact you with all necessary information about this
transaction(terms,buyer protection,payment
instructions,invoice,etc.).

P.S.I forgot to tell that the trailer will be shipped from Omaha
NE,here is a number where you can reach my husband 402 557
0226.


here's some additional links I found for that number:
Scam – 1997 Winnebago Adventurer 34RQ – $2800 « Scammer Database
Craigslist scam 1987 sunrader - Toyota Motorhome Discussion Board
1987 Toyota Sunrader Classic Motorhome ($2700) at Fight The Scams

good luck - I really hope you can get some help / support from
eBay and/or craigslist putting a stop to these crooks!

this may be old news to some. i certianly have let go of the stress and i am not pursuing trying to contact them, but i thought for those who choose this battle, this info might help.

Those links to photobucket, flickr, etc. can be malicious links. While you’re looking at the pictures, they’re downloading a Trojan onto your computer. Be careful, there’s more than one way to scam a cat.

i thought of that too. my inbox was full of people alerting me to this and my paranoia level skyrocketed. plus having the trailer on ebay, i thought it could have been a phishing scheme to hack into my account. there were a couple folks who insisted on getting my email address through ebay so they could send me important info on this scam and that made me crazy too. cant wait untill it goes away.
