I replied to an add for an ATV requesting a time and location to view the ATV.The only contact was an email address. Below is the response I received which is very similar to others reported on this site. I did forward the email to AutoTrader as a potential fraud. I did not reply back to the seller to start "our deal". No harm done as I checked the web for "moneybookers" and came across this site. Thank you. This is not an AutoTrader fraud their ads are very reliable. This suspicious response came from the individual placing the ad.
As you can see the ad is almost too good to be true.

I am interested in the ATV you're advertising in the AutoTrader.Where and when could I see it. Tomorrow would be good for me.
Give me a call.
I know that you have many choices on AutoTrader and I appreciate that you contacted me. The atv is in a perfect condition, 100% original and the engine works great. Like you already have seen in the pictures, no scratches, no rust, no damages, no hidden defects. I sell it so cheap because I just moved from Canada.The atv is still registered there. Those are the reasons why I'm selling it for $4,000.00 including the shipping and insurance charges. All documents and the notarized bill of sale will be provided along with the atv.
The transaction will be made under an escrow company called Moneybookers.I'm a serious seller and a fair trader and I prefer to deal only with a serious buyer. If you consider yourself one please e-mail me back so we can start our deal.
