I almost messed up today and bought on Craigslist a 2004 Honda Hybrid. The damn give away was to buy ebay cards gift cards then send a picture of the receipt and card number and frigging code to a bogus email address.
The email came to me like this

The car is stored with all the paperwork in eBay Motors custody, sealed and ready for delivery. The transaction will be made thru eBay Motors because they can protect both of us and they also offer 7 days inspection period. You will have free delivery and 7 days to inspect it before I receive any money, the car arriving at you in 1-2 days by a trailer. If the vehicle is not like I described you'll ship it back on my expense and they will give you a full refund. eBay motors will hold the funds until you receive the car with all the papers work. Only after you confirm them that you wanna keep it they will release me the funds. In this way you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it.
