legit or bogus

check this out. have any of you come accross this listing?

http://www.autoextra.com/vehicledeta...tp-PP/do-basic

the following is his reply to my email, hmm...

About the Defender.I can say that does not drip, leak, lean, smoke, pull to one side, vibrate,
or make funny noises. The condition is excellent . It has never been in ANY wreck, has never
hit a curb, was never hit while parked, the alignment is perfect, it tracks smooth at any
speed. It has a clean car fax which confirms the accuracy of the mileage.Price is 10600.
Title is clear. I will make this deal only trough eBay Motors Vehicle Purchase Program
because I am away with my job here in Canada. Before leaving I had prearranged shipping with
eBay and DAS so my presence isn't necessary. The car is in a warehouse of DAS, ready for
delivery. In exchange I will offer a 5 days period of testing the car from the moment you
receive it from the shipping company. If you want to make this deal I will need the
following details from you:

full name and address
shipping address
phone #
After I will have all this details I will forward them to eBay and I will proceed the order.
eBay will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to
see that I am covered by them. I wait your email with the requested details.

Thank you.

i guess my inner child-like trust in people.

honestly though, i would never buy a vehicle without seeing it or at the least have someone else look at it.

If you're looking for a great deal, then buy Carter's Defender for $13k.
