Scammer: selling a 2001 white jeep.
Right now I’m in a military base in Omaha, NE, we are training, getting ready for deployment. My Jeep is sealed and stored in our Military Deposit here in Omaha, ready for shipping. Also, I want to told you that my incoming and outgoing calls are restricted, so I can’t call you. I am only allowed to check my email several time a day. Hope that you understand. Due to the fact that this is a large transaction I would like it be handled by Marketplace. They will send you the invoice with all payment details. I will manage the shipping and all delivery fees so the total price is $1.400, no more, no less. After you make the payment to them, in 2-3 working days you’ll get my Jeep and you’ll have 5 days testing period, time in which you can inspect and drive my Jeep. After those 5 days, when you decide to keep it Marketplace will release the payment to me. I need to know if you are still interested, so I can ask Marketplace to send you the details on this deal. If you are interested, please include in the next email your contact information for Marketplace invoice (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can start the procedure.Thanks, hope to do business with you soon! I attached you some pictures
The shipping is covered by my Unit so it can be shipped anywhere in US territory.
Me: a few emails back and forth.
1. Morning. Does the Jeep run? Where are you located?
2. Hi. We would like to see the Jeep. We’re interested. When can we see it? Where are you located?
3. We are in Greeley Co. Can you ship to that area?
4. Can we see the Jeep in person. We are willing to drive to meet you and see the Jeep in person. Can you give me the VIN#as well. I’d like to run it by my insurance.
NEVER HEARD BACK FROM THIS PERSON. We waited a few days.
Me to BBB: Concerned citizen. We believe we were being scammed. We have lots of military family and dont believe this would actually happen. We are sad to hear that someone would use our brave men and women to do such a scam.

Hi again Sandy,
Right now I’m in a military base ( Omaha,Nebraska ). We are training, getting ready for leaving the country.
The delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address within 3-4 working days(for free).
It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the Facebook Marketplace buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. During that 5 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask Facebook Marketplace to send you the details on this deal.
If interested just email with your legal name (your right full name ’cause it will appear on the papers), full postal address where you want the truck delivered and your cell phone # where you can be reached so we can get the ball rolling.

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my 2003 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 4X4. I am selling this truck because I am in the military and my unit will be sent out of country. I don’t want it get old in my garage. The price is low because I need to sell it before next month. The truck is in pristine condition, no accident history, clear title. Always adult driven and garaged, never abused. If you are interested, it’s still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is $2.000. Let me know if you are interested, email back.
Vehicle title – Clean
Mileage – 127,530
Engine – 5.6L, V8
Fuel type – Gasoline
The truck has been maintained and serviced well.
I look forward to hearing from you…
PS: I attached below few pics with the truck. I hope you like it
