I answered an ad for a camper trailer for sale. The ad listed an email to correspond with. These were the replies I received from "Dr. Gibson":

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay, my name is Naomi, let me give you a few details about my 2004 Dutchmen Classic 30RL Travel Trailer. Large Refrigerator/Freezer, 16′ Power Expando with Awning, 31′ Awning over Doors, Furnace, Leather Reclining Chairs, Leather Couch with Air Mattress, Separate Shower from Toilet Area, New Vinyl Plank Flooring, All Valances and Dining Table Cushions Newly Reupholstered, Non-Smoking Owners, No Pets.

Sleeping Capacity: 6

Air Conditioners: 1

Awnings: yes

Slide Outs: 1

Length: 30

Water Capacity: 53

Exterior Color: Beige

Interior Color: Brown

Weight: 6738 lbs

The price was reduced to $1,500. I’m selling it so low due to the fact that my medical team will deploy back overseas on August 28th for an 18 months contract and it’s not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for it so there’s no use in keeping it, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Hi again,

Right now I’m stationed at a military base (Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska). We are in the final stage of our training and because of this, I’m not able to sell the RV in the traditional way so eBay Motors will handle this for me. The RV is already at the eBay shipping center, inspected and ready for delivery. The total amount that you will pay is $1,500 with all the fees included. You will receive the RV in 3 days and you will have the chance to inspect it for 5 days, also the possibility to return it at no cost in case you find something you don’t like about it. eBay Motors will hold and insure your money throughout the inspection. It will come with all the necessary paperwork (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual etc). You will receive all the original documents. I signed all the paperwork and the clear title is ready to be transferred to you.

For more info on how this works, I can ask eBay Motors to send you an email with more details.

Please reply with your full name, a complete delivery address and a ph#. I will forward your info to eBay Motors and they will contact you right away.

Send me the info only if you are really interested so we don’t have to waste each other’s time.


Got it, I will send the transaction details to eBay and they will contact us with further steps to complete the transaction. After they will contact you, please email me and let me know if we have a deal. Thank you!

I GOT NERVOUS SO I INVESTIGATED!! This is what I found… (screen shot attached). and BTW I never received any additional emails, I’m guessing because I work for a government agency and we were wanting to purchase this trailer for a client. We got lucky!!!
