Never-mind. No thank you. Just found this online:

Alert: Internet Vehicle Scams on Craigslist and Other Non-eBay Sites

eBay’s Vehicle Purchase Protection covers only certain vehicle transactions that are completed ON If a Craigslist or non-eBay seller ‘promises’ you the eBay protection plan, this is fraud and you should walk away. Learn more.

Common warning signs:

Vehicles advertised well below what it is worth may be tempting, but should be a red flag. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is.

You are unable to see the vehicle in person first or have it physically inspected prior to payment

There is an urgency to complete the sale quickly because the seller has a health or family issue, is being deployed to the military, moving out of state/country or is going through a divorce/marriage

Seller pushes to get money in advance and transferred through a fast payment method, or sent to a fake escrow account to avoid you as the buyer losing out on the deal before another buyer purchases the item first

Criminals want to lure you into feeling safe and may also disguise their websites or emails to look like they are from eBay, when they are not. View additional warning signs and examples of vehicle scams.

Important reminders:

Vehicle Purchase Protection is only offered on transactions that are completed on eBay.

eBay discourages the use of offline transactions, including payments made via Moneygram, Western Union or gift cards. These types of payments are often associated with fraudulent transactions.

Vehicle Purchase Protection does not cover any damage on vehicles 10 years old or older (10-year threshold is based on model year).

Vehicle Purchase Protection does not cover any damage on a vehicle listed with anything but a "clear" title.

I have worked with eBay since 2007 and I haven’t any problems. My advice is try at Walgreens

I’m still working on the payment arrangement. I just tried to purchase 10-$200 cards. Family Dollar only had ($50-200) dollar amount cards. The cashier just said they are not allowed to sell that many cards to any one customer due to fraud. I apologize if I seem concerned. Question. Do I need to travel to you to pick up the truck? I haven’t received any confirmation from anyone, including eBay, on how will I receive the vehicle after the payment has been received.The eBay cards just need to be scanned and wait for confirmation from eBay?

What I’ve read in the payment invoice after you bought the cards , you must send pictures to eBay with the back of the eBay Gift card where they can see the payment details, so they can verify your payment. You must send the payment details to eBay by replying to the invoice they’ve sent you.

Well then hope to hear great news soon from you and eBay also.

Thanks again!

I see now why the Redstone Arsenal isn’t an option.

I’m just waiting to hear from the financial department from eBay to tell me where I’m suppose to send 4-$500 eBay gift cards.

Is not necessary to send your bank information. To open the case with ebay I need your full name and complete address (street, city, state, zip code )

Did you mean PayPal? I’m not sure what you mean about opening an eBay account. I’m a bit finicky about sending my personal information including my bank information to eBay. On the other hand, I know how cautious it can be from your end too. That’s why I had offered to hand you a cashiers check or money order instead of a personal check. Because you had mentioned military, I can also meet you somewhere on the Arsenal to complete the transaction. I hope this email finds you well and I apologize if I’m taking precautions myself.

If your price is still $2k, I can have a cashier check or money order (in hand) for you today. Or when ever is best time to meet.

Hi again,

As I’ve told you in my first e-mail, I’m in the army with my military medical team and right now I am in a military base. We are training, getting ready for leaving the country in the next 12 days. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay services so my presence isn’t necessary. eBay will take care of it and they will send the vehicle with all the papers ( title,bill of sale, full service records, owner’s manual, books, etc ). The shipping is paid by me. It will take no more then 2 days to arrive at your home address. eBay hold your money until you receive and test the truck. You will have 5 days to test and inspect the truck, and if it doesn’t look like you expect you can return it back on my expense,but I assure you won’t be the case. In case you accept the truck you must contact eBay and ask them to release the founds to me.This is how they protect both parties. I think this is more than fair for both of us.If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay full name, shipping address (street, city, state, zip code) and phone number, so we can get the ball rolling.

Forward to hear from you !

Yes, I am very interested. Sorry for your loss.

Is there a time and place where I can come to check it out? I’m currently living in Huntsville, AL, Retired military, just moved to Alabama and haven’t yet figured out what to do with myself yet. So, I’m available at any time. I’m paid up with Enterprise until the 14th, I’m not “just looking” I am very interested.

Thank you for your time.

My name is Norma, and I’m emailing you about 2007 Ford F150 Lariat with an gasoline engine, automatic transmission and only 89,007 mileage. Never had or need any paint/body work done, garaged keep always, without any mechanical problems, tires and wheels are in great shape as well, electric is working perfectly. The engine 5.4 V8 runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. Has a clean and clear title in my name and there are no liens or loans on it. This truck was used by my husband who died 4 month ago. The price was reduced at $2,000 because I’m in a hurry to find a buyer. I need to sell the truck before the 29 of the this month, when I will be leaving on military duty with my medical team out of the country for a year and do not want to store my truck. Hate to sell it but its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for a year. If you interested I can send you pics.

Good evening, I just received a text from your nephew about your 2007 F-150. When is a good time my fiancé and I can stop by to take a look at it? Thank you for your time.
