I apologize in advance that this is off topic, but I have seen readers on this BB who are very good at picking up on boat and tow vehicle selling scams and I need your advice. I am looking for an inexpensive car for my teenage son. I found the below car listed on Craigslist. I emailed the poster and below is his email in response. Note, according to Kellys Blue Book, this car is worth in the $15K range. Is this a scam? Is there any way it could be real?

Hello and sorry for my delay,
The 2006 Honda Accord EXL is in perfect working condition.This detailed vehicle makes the exterior look like it
just came off the assembly line.The car has only 29,242 original miles.VIN Number: 1HGCM66546A051187
It was never involved in any accident, not even minor ones. The body and paint are great. The interior is super
clean, mechanically, it runs like a cat on carpet.
Sunroof Leather seats
Safety features
Anti-lock brakes Driver airbag Passenger airbag
Power options
Air conditioning Cruise control Power locks
Power windows Power seats
Year 2006 Exterior Alabaster Silver Metallic
So if you decide on buying the car, I want the deal closed only through eBay. You will make the payment to eBay and
they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, eBay will
release the payment to me, in this way we are both protected. I signed up for US military forces and I was sent here
with my department to improve the military relations between our country and Spain. I am located in Madrid, Spain.1
months ago, my wife moved here, with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United
States, because we can't drive it here because we can't register it here; it has US specs and everything, and
registering it here in Europe will take for ever. My final price on it is US 2,990 $. If you will take it for this
price, I am willing to handle the shipping .It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it
will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward
to your place.From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at
your address in about 3 max. 4 working days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your
e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all
the transaction payment and shipping details from them.

Thank you and have a great day,
Christopher Whittaker
