It was a reply for Equinenow.com. I know what you mean about Craigslist though. If they don't use the keyword I tell them to use when replying, I won't even open the email.

Learning the hard way

I know this is slightly off topic, just thought I'd state from experience that make sure you buy a horse trailer that has the seller's name on the title and the seller signs off.

I'm going through this nightmare right now as I just recently bought my first horse trailer and couldn't get it registered because of this. Yesterday after I got some advice, I called the previous owner to get this mess straightened out and sent the title certified mail with a check so I can pay for the title to be placed in her name. Then she can sign off on it. By the way, that is something she should have taken care of herself and I didn't make the check out to her, made it out to Registration Fee Trust. I am trying to take the high road as you generally get more accomplished being nice.

I have been told that technically it is not a legal sale until she signs off on the title so if she can't get it back in her name I should return it and get my money back or take her to small claims court. I'm sure that's not going to go over well. Not to mention I drove almost 200 miles one way to get this trailer. I did have a purchase contract and I am not the type of person that would haul someone to court. I prefer peaceful outcomes. She seemed nice about doing that for me on the phone, but she also never got it registered her reasoning was because she doesn't want to give the government any more money. Well who does, but there is a right and wrong way to do things. I did question the fact that she didn't have it in her name, now I'm just kicking myself for believing it wasn't going to be a big problem. Please no you should have known better comments, that's not going to make me feel better.

I would of not thought of that so thank you and sorry that you have to go thought this If the people do not do the right thing I would tell the seller that you will return the trailer and no only get you money back but they should reimburse you for the gas and time -maybe that would help to get them to help get it done

MLS has it correct, so don't reply to them, AND report ad as scam.

And funny how many of them are on cruise ships.

Another tip off is they don't want you to reply through the selling site, but to their e-mail only.
