Here’s the obvious scam e-mail I got in reply to an e-mail I sent replying to a craigslist ad. This is how these people roll:

Hello and sorry for my delay,
The 2006 Nissan Maxima is in perfect working condition.This detailed vehicle makes the exterior look like it just came off the assembly line.The car has only 49,800 original miles. Vin #: 1N4BA41E76C858912.
It was never involved in any accident, not even minor ones. The body and paint are great. The interior is super clean, mechanically, it runs like a cat on carpet.
Here are the pics of the car, click on this link :
So if you decide on buying the car, I want the deal closed only through eBay. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the car. ONLY AFTER you receive the car and you inspect it, eBay will release the payment to me, in this way we are both protected. I signed up for US military forces and I was sent to United Kingdom with my department to improve the military relations between our country and UK. I am located in London, United Kingdom. One month ago, my wife moved here with me and brought the car with her, but now we have to sell it back in the United States, because we can’t drive it here as we can’t register it; it has US specs and everything, and registering it in Europe will take for ever. My final price on it is US 2,950 $. If you will take it for this price, I am willing to handle the shipping .It will be shipped from here by plane with US Air Military Cargo so it will not cost me anything. You will get it to the nearest airport in your area and then it will be trucked forward to your place. From the moment the payment is secured by eBay the shipping process will begin and it will arrive at your address in about 3 max. 4 working days. Please get back to me asap if you decide to buy, and include in your e-mail your full name and address where you want it shipped so I can start the deal with eBay. You will receive all the transaction payment and shipping details from them.
