hahaha @ ear surgery!! The really bad part is that some people must have been (I won't say dumb) uneducated enough to fall for this, for them to keep doing it.

People will try to get over on you folks!!! Don't be the victim!!!

Wow...good for you for being smart enough to ask all the questions you did! If more people did that, we'd be able to put these stupid scam artists out of business!

What I always say is...if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!!

What did the words in white font say? I missed the ad, and they deleted it now.

What words in white?

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

AH! I almost fell for this scam, but something told me to ask questions! I have been in contact with "Gail" for a couple of days now. "She" told me her husband died in Iraq, she and her daughter are moving in with her sister, selling her house, and she really needs to sell the trailer! I have asked her several specific questions, but she won't reply to them at all; just keeps talking about how Ebay will contact me. She stated that the trailer is in New Jersey at the shipping center. Ebay doesn't have shipping centers! I found the listing on craigslist in Montana. I then googled the trailer and found that it has been flagged on almost every state's craigslist! This is a bad, bad person! Spread the word that it is a SCAM! I have contacted Ebay to inform the company of this scam as well!

ive found scams on horse sale websites too, lame ones though...
e.g. in the pictures tab all the pictures were of different horses! simular looking i give them that but different. do they really think that a person buying a horse would know that little about them! or in fact buying in general.

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Similar scam was on horseclicks for a smaller trailer. We contacted them as the seller was from a town about 40 miles from us. When we asked to see the trailer, we were told it was in Indiana and the sale was through a brokerage scam.
