Type of a scam Online Purchase
Ad in Craigslist for a 2002 Roadtrek 190 Popular for $ 4200.00. I requested mileage. Received a text saying more information would be provided is I supplied my email address. Received an email stating the husband has died of a heart attack and mother and son moved to Colorado to her parents. I could purchase the van/camper by providing my full name and address. that information would be given to Colorado Premium Transports (CPT) who would ship the van/camper and I would have 5 days to drive, get inspected and decide if I wanted to keep it. If I chose to keep it (CPT) would then release the money to the seller. If I chose not to keep it, it would be sent back at seller’s expense. This is pretty much the same story as the scam reported on a Jeep for sale on Craigslist. Seller would not need to be present because everything is prearranged with CPT. I did receive pictures, but they looked exactly like pictures I had seen when researching Roadtrek 190 Popular campers via the internet. I copied the scam report regarding the Jeep as a reply to one of our emails. Have not heard back.
So our current situation is that my son and I decided to go for fresh start so we sold the house and moved to my parents in Denver, CO. We are trying to start a new life. The RV is here in Colorado, stored with all the paperwork at the shipping company (Colorado Premium Transports) and ready to be delivered to its new owner. I want to use their escrow and transport services as they offer 100% protection and insurance to both buyers and sellers. The best part about this is that you have 5 days to try it out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don’t like about it, you can send it back at my expense.
If interested please include in your next email your contact info for Colorado Premium Transports (full name, shipping address and phone#), so I can notify them that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The shipping is included in the price so it won’t cost you anything extra.
Thanks, hope to do business with you soon."
