We posted an ad on Craigslist. I became VERY suspicious when told the tentative buyer was a US Navy man out to sea who had absolutely no access to his bank accounts BUT could pay thru PayPal. If you can make a Internet transaction thru PayPal then you can have Internet access to your bank. I searched the email address on FaceBook, and he's there but with no real profile, pics, or friends listed. Then I get a direct hit on the very same email address on the ripoffreport. After reading the correspondence others received, it was the exact wording with a few more spelling errors. I have cut/paste the actual email from this guy from our emails received. You will see they are so similiar that they are absolutely the same guy. If you notice, the guy never really gives you his name other then the one registered with Gmail, nor his location, only that he is out to sea in the Navy. I proudly served 6.5 yrs and DO NOT appreciate total buttheads ruin the good reputation of our service members. Take these suckers out! Please!!

Thank you so much for the detailed explanation. Am satisfy with the RV condition and the payment option. That's the only method I can pay with, right now. I will be glad if you get back with the PayPal email address so that I can make the payment and we can arrange for the pick up date and time.

You done need to wait for any 14 days to get your payment, PayPal will email you immeditely I made the payment, you just have to follow their procedure and you'll get your full payment without delay and after this, we can schedule for the pick up date and time.

Thanks for your e-mail, it was just exactly what i want and can you
assure me that i will not be disappointed buying this from you. I am
really interested in purchasing your ad.  Am with the U.S Navy and
currently station in NAS Lemoore, I will appreciate if you can email
me with more picture of it as i won't be able to see this in person. I
want you to answer this question about the item;

1. Are there any other issues with the item not mentioned on Craigslist?

I will be glad if you can tell other interested buyers that the item
has been sold. I'm offering you your listed price so please kindly
withdraw the ad from Craigslist. I will be paying via PayPal. I can
only pay through pay pal at the moment as i do not have access to my
bank account online, but i have it attached to my pay pal account, and
this is why i insisted on using PayPal to pay. If this is acceptable,
advice soon and if you don't have an account, you can easily create an
account fast and easy at I will need you to provide
the following information to facilitate the Payment

1.Your PayPal Email Address.
2.Your address for pick up.

I will be responsible for moving, I will have my mover who handle my
shipping from anywhere in the world come over for the pickup after i
have made the payment.

Thank you for your time.
