Nice lady with 1983 casita for 1800

There is a nice lady that has a Casita listed on the Topeka craigslist for $1800. When I inquired about it she had moved to Omaha for a new job. She has just lost her son. So she has prearranged a deal with amazon to be shipped to me. The delivery is absolutly free shipping. I will have 5 days to test and inspect the camper. I just need to wait for amazon to contact me about payment. The nice lady has been so good and I should have a nice camper before long.

Let's see now, you pay in advance by Western Union or something else untraceable with no recourse?

I agree sounds like a scam. Ask to come and look at it. I feel if it not for real things will break down.

RICH! Be very careful - way to many scams out there regarding people who have had a family loss, just moved to a new town and will ship the trailer to you, willing to pre arrange for you the transport of the trailer etc ......

Have you had anyone actually go and see this trailer? If not my advise is dont do it!

Do any of the photos of the trailer look anything like this one?

If so this trailer has shown up on Craigslist in many different locations in the US and on ebay and Scam alert has been posted on it.

Even if it is a Scam, seeing both bunks and a washroom was interesting.

I am assuming that this is posted as a humorous comment on the world as we know it and not as a serious note about actually proceeding with the deal.

Personally, I am just waiting for the nice gentleman in Nigeria to deposit the $21.3 million into my bank account (I gave him the number and PIN to make it easier for him) so that I can order my new fiberglass trailer and a new tug.

Ok this is getting more and more freaky! Ricky 4 is a friend of mine and I've been emailing her today and she's mentioned NOTHING about this--which is weird cause I live in Omaha! They just recently bought a 16 Scamp and have made enough purchases in the past, I just can't believe they would go blindly into this??. WTHeck.

scam?

yes, this was all a joke-we did get several emails like this when inquiring about campers.
cant believe someone would fall for this-guess some people do because these post still are on Crasigslist.
Thanks, Vickie for the kind words.
Now that Richard has retired-I see I need to keep an eye on him!!
The Mrs.
