Has to be a scam or a major misprint. If not I would fly to any state and pay cash also. Heck I would give them 10k just for their trouble. Mike

It's a scam of course. That D-90 was for sale a few months back, and I think I have seen it a few times. Anyway, it was originally for sale in Park City, UT - funny how it's the same pics! If Chicago actually looked like that I would move there!!!

Ski hill? Thats the landfill!

Its probably another one of those like the e30 M3 I mentioned the other day in the MD/VA Fraud thread. People copy the page off Ebay and relist it with all the info months later at a rediculously low BIN price. They figure people will get so excited and worried it will be sold out from under them that they will pay before doing enough research. I am sure that whoever posted it probably has never even seen the truck let alone own it.

Look at his feedback too. Only 11 all within the last 2 months. He probably opened an acct. and bought a bunch of dirt cheap items that he promptly paid for so that he would have some + feedback when he pulled this crap.

Just my $.02

Andrew,

I think you are right on the mark. Also, I have never seen someone list the information on a vehicle the way they have. It just doesn't seem quite right.

Sounds like a scam...
I too was interested to know if it was a scam, so I e-mailed the seller to see if I could view the Defender. Heck if it was true and in great condition and under $9k I'd fly to Chicago and drive it home.

Here's his reply:

Hi, i received your email regarding my car. First off all i would like you to know that the car will be shipped from Yukon, Canada for free anywhere in United States, you will receive this beauty in 11 dayes. The car you are interested in is in perfect condition, it has not even a scratch or damage, it have not been involved in a accident. All documents, including owner's manual, clear title and a bill of sale on your name will be shipped along with the car. Currently i'm out of states with my wife, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and she's going thru treatments in Canada.

Asking price for my car is $8900.00, i have ended the auction early for a buyer but it looks like he failed for a Ioan so the car is still available for sale.


Please email me back asap if you are realy interested and have funds available for this purcahse.
Best Regards,
Antonio & Clara Amaya

I think I just got an email from his cousin in Nigeria. Maybe I could use that $250,000.00 that is being sent to me by Western Union.

Damn, an awful lot of people having spouse problems and running to another country to deal with it.

Sounds like the same scam on a different Rover. There was a red soft top in NY state a few months ago also on EBay with the same MO. $8,500, the car was perfect, he was in FL and the car was in NY. It never went anywhere, he vanished after I started asking questions.
