Not mine, and clearly a scam. Can't believe people really put this crap out there.

Noticed that in Denver Craig yesterday. Waste of time and funds but be fun to track these pricks out and call them on it. (Probably require a trip to Uganda)

You won't be able to play with them, all they want is your phone number or email and then you'll start getting text messages and calls about your expired auto warranty, etc. These are not the nigerian scammers, they are just phishing for numbers/emails.

Typically those are hacked emails.

This should be fun...email back

Hi,
Thank you for contacting me about my 1997 Land Rover Defender Wagon that I have for sale. This truck is in great shape (39,500 miles,vin# SALDV3243VA130787). It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn't been involved in any accident...I do have the title, clear, under my name. Non-smoker.My husband and I divorced last month, after the divorce I was awarded the truck, I don't need it and that's why I'm selling it so cheap.The total price is $5,150 including delivery and handling. It is located in Great Falls,MT. I recently moved here after I divorced.

We can use Google Checkout program for our safety and for payment I prefer to use a Google's buyer protection plan. The financial part will be managed by them. Which means that you will have 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the vehicle, a refund policy is included. The deal will go strictly according to Google Checkout rules and policy. There are no other costs on this transaction through Google Checkout. Let me know if you want to buy it and i will send you more details and photos.
Regards,
Lisa Baker.

Ugh. Larry Baker's wife? Don't get me started on Larry Baker!. He was always cheating on his wife Lisa, spending more time on the forum than with her; more money on his little red 88, his rhinolined RRC, his Discovery, etc. yet whenever she'd want to go on a camping trip or to a Land Rover event to spend some quality time with him, his excuse was always that the RRC wasn't street legal, that the Disco was in pieces, and that the 5 day forecast called for rain on the 5th day so the little red 88 was out of the question and that he'd be hitching a ride to the event "with a friend". I think it eventually got to Lisa. I never saw his 1997 D90 LE, but then again that doesn't surprise me, since neither I nor any of his friends really ever saw his 88, his RRC, or his Disco either.

Irony.. If anyone thinks there is a shred of truth to it, I don't live far from there better yet have a buddy who lives in Great Falls. If an interest and she's willing to give up a physical address,
Will do

Classic told (it) I could view today at lunch or tonight after work.
The response:

Hi again,
The truck is already at the delivery company in Great Falls,MT ready for delivery. I have setup this sale with Google Checkout so this deal must go through them. Unfortunately I'm not near you and my daughter is in hospital so I can't meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my truck on internet.
In order to complete this deal the payment must be sent to Google Checkout. As soon as they receive the payment will notify me to start with delivery. The delivery cost is included in the price.
Google Checkout will not release the payment to me until you receive and inspect the truck (you have 10 days for inspection). If the truck is not in same condition as I said you will ship it back on my expense and Google Checkout will send you a full refund. But I assure you won't be the case. Now, if you are serious about this and want to move forward, just mail me back with:

- Your Full Name - Required by Google Checkout (You'll receive important guidelines + payment instructions from them.)
- Your Delivery Address
- Your Cell phone number

As soon as I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to Google Checkout and declare you as the buyer. They will contact you with further information regarding payment and delivery.
Here is a link to the truck's photo gallery: http://www.use.com/646f3941682be52f5454#photo=1
Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!

PS:The truck comes with all the documents ( title, bill of sale, full service records, etc...) It has a clear title in my name. The title will be signed into your name as soon as the payment will be sent to Google Checkout.
