I contacted one the scrammer to see what would happen.

The acution said that he was from a city in NY, I for get the name, I emailed him like he ask you to do telling him I lived in a city only 15 miles from him and I have CASH and I would like to come out on the weekend and check out the sled.

Here is his reply:

Hello there,
I had to pause the listing on ebay because I've almost reached an agreement with a local potential buyer. Unfortunately, it looks like there are some problems and he doesn't have all the money to pay, for the moment. Therefore, if you are willing to pay the buy-it-now price $3000 , I'm ready to start this transaction with you.

First of all you should know that the sled is in excellent condition, mechanically and aesthetically intact, no damages, it's an US model. It runs just like new.
It has a Clear Title which you will receive along with the sled. It can be registered to your name with no problems.

The snowmobile is in the US and I am willing to ship the item and cover half of shipping and insurance fees to your location if We can close the deal this week because .
I would like our deal to be supervised by eBay and SafeHarbor Team. In case we have a deal I will notify eBay transactions department so they can inform you about my reliability and how we can proceed with this transaction in a 100% safe way.

If you are interested in buying it please reply asap and let me know where are you located (your full shipping address) so that I can calculate the shipping cost. [:(!][:(!]

^^^you gotta be careful about that, it's not always the unintelligent ones that get scammed, a lot of the times it is the people that think they will never get scammed that end up losing because they overlook the small details. This is just another point that shows everyone has to be careful. Never buy a sled buy yourself, always ask for opinions, but not only about the sled model but about the deal you're getting and about the seller

The scammer replied again.

here is my email to his first reply:Date: Thu, 09 Nov 2006 09:17:24 -0500
>Sorry it took so long to get back to you. As i said in my first
>email I HAVE CASH and I live in Oak Ridge, NY... that is just 15 min
>from you. There is nothing more safe then CASH and title and why in
>the world would I want to have the sled shipped if I am 15 mins away
>from you and I have a trailer? I have the cash and I would love to
>check out the sled... let me know.


Now this is the reply I got the other day:Hi again,

Our transaction will run under the supervision of ebay SafeHarbor, so if you are ready to proceed just let me know, and I will notify them so we can both get detailed information regarding proper payment, shipping and insurance to be used for this deal.



This is how it works :

1.The Seller will open the transaction --> 2.The buyer has to make the payment to ebay SafeHarbor Financial Department and they will deposit the money into their escrow account -->

3.The Seller will receive the confirmation that the payment is done --> 4.The seller will ship the item to the buyer and he has 3 days to test and check it -->

5.The buyer will contact ebay SafeHarbor Financial Department to tell them if he is satisfied or not --> 6.SafeHarbor will release the money to the seller(in case the buyer is satisfied) and to the buyer(in case that he is not satisfied).

The money will be HELD by them into their account and I will give you a few days to test the sled and to see that nothing is wrong with it. I made few deals in this way and it worked very well.

Shipping: The shipping will take 8 - 10 bussiness days. You will have to pay half of shipping cost . Will be around $300 (your part).

Payment: The payment will be done thru WIRE TRANSFER.

II also have a Vehicle Purchase Protection Account with Ebay Motors wich protects buyer against fraud up to $10.000 when using it to buy any vehicle.

If you agree with my terms please email me your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS to can calculate the shipping cost and also to start the transaction asap.
END:

Notice that its like a machine talking to you and he does not give his name or phone.... this is just to crazy.
