    Default Scam

    Just a heads up, looking around I came across this craigslist add for a Rubicon. Even though it had Washington DC across the bottom numerous times, I sent a simple message. Below is the response, bottom line it is a scam. Would not recommend clicking on the picasaweb link at the bottom!!!

    Hello,

    Sorry for the late response but I have just arrived in Madrid, Spain. I wanted to let you know that the car is still available
    for $8,500+$300 shipping fees. It is in great condition
    inside, outside and mechanically, never involved in any accidents, clear title. The car is in Simpsonville, SC at the shipping
    company World Safe Shipping ( visit their website: http;//world.safe.shipping.com ).
    Let me know if you have any questions. If you are still interested please come back so I can explain you how the deal work.

    Thank you,
    Jennifer Ambers

    P.S. : Here is a link with some photos:

    X2 on the scam and good looking out - seen the same type of thing before when I was looking for my first jeep. Another big indicator is that the vehicle is already with the "shipping company" which certainly doesn't exist.
