This was regarding 2005 FORD F-150 XLT for sale in Atlanta, SCAM!! I am posting his original responses as well as the photo he has posted on G+ attached to his gmail email account, in hopes if others do a Google search they will see this is a FRAUDSTER! Beware if someone leaves a phone number or email stating they cannot be contacted via Car Gurus, there is a REASON.... 1st response from the listing: John Parker 9:13 AM (47 minutes ago) to me Hi there, My name is John, and I'm emailing you about 2005 FORD F-150 XLT 4-DOOR 4X4 with an gasoline engine, automatic transmission and only 122,480 miles. Never had or need any paint/body work done, garaged keep always, without any mechanical problems, tires and wheels are in great shape as well, electric is working perfectly. The engine V8 gas, runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. Has a clean and clear US title in my name and there are no liens or loans on it. This car has been used by my wife who died 4 months ago. The price was reduced at $3,000 because I'm in a hurry to find a buyer. I need to sell the car before the April 30, when I will be leaving on military duty with my medical team out of the country for a year and do not want to store it. Hate to sell it but its not worth keeping insurance and paying storage fees for a year. Also, the truck is too big for my daughter so there's no use on keeping it. If you are interested in buying it or if you have any questions, please reply to this email. For more pictures here is a link to the truck gallery: I look forward to hearing from you, Senior Medic Sgt. John Parker 2nd response when asking about test driving: John Parker 9:36 AM (20 minutes ago) to me Right now I'm in a military base. We are training, getting ready for leaving the country. The delivery process will be managed by Cargurus. I think I can have it there at your home address within 3 working days. It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the Cargurus buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 7 days testing period after delivery. During that 7 days testing period I will not be getting any money. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask Cargurus to send you the details on this deal. If interested just email with your legal name (your right full name 'cause it will appear on the papers), full postal address where you want the vehicle delivered and your cell phone # where you can be reached so we can get the ball rolling.
