What do you think about this trailer?
 
I found this ad on my local list and it DOES sound too cheap to be true. Could it be ripoff or make sense to go out and look at it (given it's not sold, of course)....

Be really careful. I emailed on a similar one, similar price, too, last fall. Mine was definitely a scam. But, can't hurt to inquire-if they will actually meet you in person, that would be a start..and naturally, if they say-free shipping...just pay for the trailer-RUN!

Usually, if is sounds too good to be true, it is.:-(

FYI-I just did a quick google of Eclipse DLX $2800-came up with several Craigslist ads, all different places, mainly midwest, all flagged for removal. Doesn't look to be legit.

I'm betting on it being a scam since a 2008 Eclipse goes for a heck of a lot more than $2,800.00, but it wouldn't hurt to contact them.

If you contact them and they tell you the trailer's in another state and will have to be shipped to you, it's a definite scam.

It's a scam!!! They are "selling" other items as well like RV's, 4wheelers, motorcycles etc. All the same person and same ads. They don't let anyone look at the item before buying. Don't even bother with it.

If it sounds to good to be true, it probably isn't.

Thanks, All! I have a trailer actually and not looking for one (unless it's super price from someone I trust). But the price was just too good not to ask.

However(!), I gonna inquire for fun! Will keep you all updated how it goes! :-)

kitten_Val 01-23-2011 01:29 PM

OK, I got a reply back (and BTW, BEWARE of anyone with the address fergi44e@msn.com !!!)... How sweet, isn't it? I think I gonna get it!

Hi,
First of all I want to thank you for your interest in purchasing my 2008 eclipse DLX two horse trailer. I've advertised my trailer nation-wide,and I received a lot of emails from interested buyers. Anyway, I confirm again the last price is $2,800. I will even deliver it to you if needed and it will take no more than 2-7 working days (depending on your exact location). The horse trailer is located in Portland, ME. I almost closed the deal but the buyer couldn't get a loan from his bank. But there is a good part in all of this: he sent me 400$ to cover the shipping cost before he got the bad news from the bank, and now he said i should keep it: "this is my way to show my appreciation for your effort" he said. Giving the nature of this transaction we can escrow the payment with Google Checkout, and this way you're not buying something sight unseen.

If you have other questions feel free to email me, I hope we can do business together.
Sincerely,
Carolyn Glenn

If you still want to tweak this scamming seller, tell them that as luck would have it, how cool is this, your former TRAINER lives in Maine just 2 miles from the trailer!!! and your trainer said sure, he'll be happy to go see the trailer for you and take possession!!!! He's bringing cash!!!!! When would be good for him to see the trailer???? A legit seller would be all over this, right?

I will bet you that a) it's already sold or b) you never hear back.

Oh, boy, that's the great idea! I gonna send it to her now! :lol:

usandpets 01-23-2011 10:28 PM

Boy, that trailer sure gets around! It was in AZ, PA, and now ME. The gal lives in CA supposedly, so she'll send you back another email that you'll need to do the deal thru EBay anyway since the shipping company has the trailer.
