I was looking for a commuter vehicle on craigslist so I could park the gas guzzling tow vehicle and ran across and add for a late model Camry for a great deal. Not a give away deal but a smoking one. Emailed the guy and this is what I got back.
Sorry for the late response but I work in the US Air Force and it's very hard for me to reply faster. I wanted to let you know that the car is still available, i had a buyer but his loan did not get approved. If you are still interested please let me know asap, here is a link with more
At this time the car is in Helena, MT with me and we can use the eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection service to handle this deal if you're not able to come pick this up. Let me know if you have any questions, for some reasons your previous email did not load on my screen.

Was pretty sure at this point it was a scam but made sure and emailed him saying I could come pic it up. Never heard back so I emailed again to see if he could ship. Then of course I get his immediate response of:
Here is how it works if you have never used eBay vehicle purchase protection program. You send me your full name and your shipping address so I can initiate the transaction on eBay.eBay contacts you with further details regarding the payment and shipping process.You submit the payment to eBay, eBay confirms the payment and asks me to release the shipment.I ship the car which should be at your door within the next 5 business days.You have a 3 days inspection period before you confirm the deal and eBay forwards the payment to me or you cancel the deal and you get your money back and return the vehicle free of charge. Basicaly ebay holds your money safe until you confirm that the car is what you have expected and you want to buy it. It is not a sight unseen deal. On the other hand I can ship the car nowing ebay has your money and you wont dissapear with my toyota. We are both covered.Sorry for the long emails I have tried to touch all bases.
I have to admit the military thing was a nice touch.
