2006 Safari for 10K?

This is too good to be true, right?

Yes, the phone number is a California number, and is not in service. The trailer is shown to be in Virginia. Response to email inquiry was from a hotmail address.

Good advice when buying things online...

Regardless of where the listing is posted. From the "Buyer Safety Tips" link in this ad:
Quote:
SELLER SCAMS

To avoid Seller scams, pay attention to the following clues:
  • Seller asks you to send a deposit or payment via Western Union or other wire transfer methods.
  • A price that is too low or too good to be true.
  • A seller's phone number is out of service or rings to a fax machine.
  • A seller's address is not verifiable.
  • Beware of international sellers.
  • A seller offers free shipping
  • A seller doesn't want to discuss over the phone, but only wants to communicate by e-mail.
  • A seller insists you use an escrow service you don't know.
  • A seller is unwilling to show you proof of ownership (title, VIN number, registration)
  • A seller who cannot provide you unique identification of the vehicle (non-ad photos, photos of actual VIN number on frame, etc.)
This is the best part, the picture shown below is right under the description of the ad!

I would say that this is a scam. I hate theives whose purpose in life is to steal money from people. It makes me particularly angry when these theives use my beloved Airstream to carry out their theft. My greatest hope for these theives is that someday they get caught and end up as prom queens at the prison dance.
