The two trailers were slightly different from the emails we got but nonetheless we want to go look at the trailer in the same state and pay for it then take it home. Not interested in paying through ebay or a shipping company etc...
There has to be honest people out there somewhere!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

If you are looking to purchase a new trailer, and want to make sure that things are legit, try checking out one of these places... When I lived in MA, they put the Want Ad in print, every two weeks, and now that I have moved to FL, The Uncle Henry's thing is the closest thing to the Want Ad. They aren't even just for a localized area.... There is stuff in there from all over the states...

Good Luck in your search!!

I say it is a complete scam. Simply because my brother e-mailed some one form craigslist about this awesome jacked up white f-150. They said pretty much the same exact thing that you where told. "The son had gone to Iraqu and he was trying to get ird of it." I hate it when people do that it is ridiculous. I am sorry about that. I am sure it was an awesome trailer too.

Its really sad that folks use the war and real soldiers getting killed as a reason to try and scam anyone. It does happen alot , especially on Craigs list. I listed a saddle for sale on Craigs list and you can't believe the replies. I think they go to sites that have whatever they want to scam and take photos from legitimate sales and use those photos. A good reason to not post photos but to say " contact me for more photos" and then send them to someone who really is interested in it.

Remember the old adage you get what you pay for.. if there is a trailer for sale that you know is worth 10k for sale for2k it is going to be a scam...

Well I e-mailed some one on craigslist about a trailer and this is what I got back. I am sure that several people have gotten this same response.

Hi,

First, a few words about this horse trailer:

- this is a Sundowner Sportman, 2 horse slant load, double walled
- all aluminum, swing out saddle rack, double back doors, windows on the back doors and tack room
- SPARE TIRE, bridle hooks, mats in horse area and front tack, pop up air vents
- brushed aluminum fenders, brakes on both axles
If you decide to buy it, you'll receive all the paperwork, books, owner's manuals, original purchase order/receipt and the clear title.
I have a low price ( $ 2,985 including delivery to your home address ) because I want to sell the trailer very quickly. My husband died 2 months ago and I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in New York. Unfortunately I can't conclude this transaction personally because my work involves a lot of travelling but I left everything prepared for the sale. If you are really interested in purchasing the trailer please contact me asap.

Regards,
Katie

It is definitely a scam. Only items listed on EBAY are paid through EBAY. If you have it an item such as this shipped there is no reason to pay before shipping.

Definitely a scam, my husband actually emailed the seller on this one too, and when we got this same reply, we said we wanted to "see" the trailer and have never heard back from seller. I am always leary when they wont let you "see" the trailer in person and just want you to go on their word that there really is a trailer for sale. Sad that people are out there like that, they play on your emotions, hence the son serving in Iraq story
