Interesting Craigslist scam, cheap '07GC

I asked for info on a certain ad for a 2007 model, seemed too good to be true (as in 17K mi for $2200, hmm a typo?).

It beats me what the reply means or what they're up to, some kinda scam deal. I wonder if they do COD.
Enjoy.

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee LIMITED with 17,565 Miles. The car is in great shape, no problems, damages or hidden defects and never been involved in accidents.

Is absolutely loaded. Has the Hemi Engine, Leather, Heated Power and Memory Seats, Navigation, Back-up camera, Dvd Entertainment System with two head sets. I also had a dual magnaflow exhaust system installed, a 2.5 inch suspension lift installed by a jeep dealer, new BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO Tires, new brake pads and rotors in the front and rear, full synthetic oil always used.

I bought it when i was serving in RAFB Louisville,KY but i was promoted and transferred to RAF Elmendorf in Anchorage Alaska for a 3 years period, so I do not want to let it ruin until i return, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer.

The car is already at our Military Logistic Department from RAFB Louisville, U.S. Army, crated and ready to go. The shipping will be free for you because I will transport it using the internal logistic department! The Logistic Department will deliver the car to the nearest Us army base from your area and from there I will use a tow-truck to have it delivered at your door. The whole shipping process will take 3-4 days.

The final price is $2.200 which include delivery at your home address. If you decide to buy this car email me your: Full Name and Shipping address ,so I can inform eBay Motors Buyer Protection services that I have a buyer! I will forward your details to them and then you will receive an invoice (with no further obligations or fees) and you will be able to talk with them directly and ask anything you want to know.

Here you have some more photo's of my Jeep:

Thanks,

LT. Robert Bennett

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

RAF as in British Royal Air Force ? Ask him if they can do an air drop delivery. Of course this is a scam.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

If its too good to be true, it probably is. Live by this rule and you should never fall victim to such obvious scams...

Give him a bogus addres, number, and credit card. I'll usually give them the address and phone number of the local PD, then email them saying they have been reported the add most of the time gets deleted. Another fun one is to give their info to a telemarketer.

You also could ask for the vin and have someone do a scan on it and it will show where it is registered.
