Scam

I have a classified to sell my RV on this site, and just wanted to let everyone know there is a person out there named Upchurch Hooser (uhooser@yahoo.com) trying to scam me. I googled the name and he came up in a previous scam from when he tried to get money from a lady selling a harp in 2012. Classic symptoms: works at sea, can't get a cashier's check, needs help to get the shipper to pick it up - wanting me to wire that to someone)...I've reported him to paypal and wanted to alert everyone else.

I just had the same thing happen on a web site called FreeHorseAds.com
The following is the response I got back from one inquirey. I tried two more ads and got back the same responses only one wanting the deal to go through EBAY and the other was GOOGLE. When I notified the web site about these ads, they closed it down.

Hi,
>
> I'm writing you regarding my 2004 Featherlite 3-Horse Slant 4' Weekend pkg LQ Living Quarter. The price I'm looking for is $2,400.00. The trailer is in perfect condition, there's not even a scratch on it. Everything is shining and looking brand new.
> I am desperate,I need urgently money because my little girl has a big health problem.
> I only deal through Amazon so if you're interested in purchasing let me know. Also let me know if you need any more info on this wonderful trailer or if you have any other questions of any sort.



I m sorry but I can't call you..right now I m out of state with my job. The trailer is located in UT at the shipping company ,like i told we will use Amazon,so we can both be protected and insured.The price for the trailer is $2,400 with shipping included.The trailer it's in perfect conditions! I just need your full name and your full address so Amazon can send you the invoice in which you`ll see how to make this transaction.The shipping is free i will take care of it and i will send the trailer with all the papers ( vehicle registration, warranty papers,transfer papers etc ) i am just waiting your full name and address to complete the shipping papers and start the delivery process..
