Just wanted to put out a quick note on a recent Craigslist.org post for a 2010 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 EFI.
It was listed in Raleigh, NC and contact phone number was 919-551-4285.
I got a text from back from my inquiry and it said to contact Natalie at firstname.lastname@example.org
“I listed the 4 Wheeler For My Sister, you can reach her there”.
I emailed and she quickly responded with the following:
Thank you for your interest in purchasing my 2010 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 EFI
Engine Size (cc): 750cc
Transmission Type: Automatic
Drive Train: 4-Wheel Drive
I am selling this ATV because I am in the military and my unit will be sent back to Afghanistan. I don’t want it get old in my garage. The price is low because I need to sell it before Nov 30. The Kawasaki is in pristine condition, clear title, no dents or dings and no scratches. If you are interested, it’s still available for sale and my last price is $2,000.00. The quad is already at our Military Logistic Department form Fort Belvoir, U.S. Army base, ready to go and in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back.
Pictures are available/ request

After this didnt make sense, and why she would pay to ship it to me, and she didnt know where I lived yet, this was nuts. Price was only $2000.
We went back and forth, and she claimed to be using ebay, but this wasnt listed at the moment there. She assured me it would be done via ebay, but she kept asking for all my information via email.
Turns out, her ebay username natoe7311 had never been used, was created this year, and she stopped responding after I told her she was a fake.
Im hoping someone googles her email address and avoids further shady business with this person, and saves themselves lots of money.
If you dont know how to use ebay, you bid and pay on EBAY. Not to the seller, regardless of what they ask. Never send money without 100% certainty of what you are getting.
