Mr. Nathan Welch using as his email address post the ad and started corresponding with me. I was instructed that I would received eBay Motors VPP Invoice with payment instruction. Payment instructions stated I needed to sent cash thru Money Gram, also recommended that I go to more than one MG agent in different amts. Payment verification would take 12 hours and once it is secured, the seller is authorized to ship the vehicle. The buyer is given 5 business days to inspect it. Mr. Welch stated in his email that he was a medical personnel in the army getting ready to be deployed out of the country and would like to get ready of the vehicle as soon as possible. He also stated that the army has free shipping services that can ship out the vehicle once the payment is received. He stated that he uses eBay Protection Plan and that eBay Motors Agent will secure the payment and a full refund is available if buyer decides not to purchase. Agent list was Vera Jackson, 545 E. 24th St, Erie, PA 16503. The seller information is Nathan Welch, 686 Plumb Ln, Rena, NV 89502. Beware of these two individuals. This appears to be big scam operation using professional business invoices/templates with all eBay and money gram icons. I was taken, but at the end I cancel the transaction and got my money back.
