Is this the LE that's in a shipping container and the "guy" will work with a third party to facilitate the transaction?

Yep. You are making me sound a little stupid for asking, but I'm asking. I did purchase the Carfax and it was sold about 2 months ago. I'd love to know who the real owner is.

Here it was back in 2005. PS you're clearly talking to a scammer if that wasn't obvious.

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=46865. This guy bought in Houston a few months then went radio silent. I spoke with Houston owner a few times when he was asking 42k. He was difficult to deal with. There is something fishy with mileage I could never get a straight answer so I walked.

Just don't send a cent without actually seeing the truck and title in person! It sounds like a scam...run away.

haha. That guy was funny. Each time it didn't sell he would ask $5-10k more for it - I think the last time he had it up for $20k more than he paid for it.

Thanks for all of the input. I decided to walk. Too many red flags. This is either a great deal for someone, or a scam. I couldn't decide which, so I walked. The seller claims to have other buyers, so good luck to him.

Sambumba is very slick...

Just don't buy sight-unseen.

Post the link. It's a scam - not a good deal.

Here's his original email response, I'm sure it's the same that you received:

Hello, thank you for the interest in my Defender. First of all the car in MINT condition!!! I am not in US anymore, i'm a pilot, and i am working for a flight company from Europe. The shipping will be included in the price. I sealed the car in a container due the many problems with shipper handlers that i heard, i wanted the car to be received by it's new owner without any scratches.
I am selling the car because i have family problems, i just divorced from my ex wife and have to split some things with her. I need to sell it asap, this way i will have no more contact with her. I caught her cheating me. For that the price is negotiable a little bit! If you are interested i will give you more information. The shipping company has a department which acts like a 3rd party objective, this way we will be both protected. The car has 75000 miles, the title is already signed, no rust, no nothing!
If you are interested let me know, if not i wish you'll find a good car, thank you, James.

I humor him and ask about where in Europe the truck is located, badge number and pics of the bulkhead/undercarriage:

His response:
The car is located in TX Sir. I will not unseal the car without no guarantee. Thanks anyway.

Verbatim. At least I'm only out a few hours and a CARFAX report.
