[Scam] Ebay Motors Scam / Craigslist

Would like to let everyone know of a new one. I found a boat on ebay, appeared to good to be true but wrote the seller anyways. Well she said she is going through a divorce, works 9am to 9pm and then goes straight to sleep so that's why she can't meet me, she lives in Michigan (the posting was on Craigslist in South Carolina), the boat is located there and she will do the process through ebay motors. I recieve an email that sure looked authentic, coming from ebay motors, requesting a deposit of $2900 that would be held for me to inspect the boat for 5 days. Told me to send the moneygram to their "agent" at:

Linda Green
16005 W Mcnichols Rd
Atlanta, GA 30305

The person I was cooresponding with was located at:

gordon.lauren025@gmail.com

and went by the name of Lauren Gordon

Google some part of the ad and see if it comes up on other sites. In any case I'm sure it's a scam. The "ebay motors" email is a fraud, you can post the headers here and we'll point out where it's really from.

Please provide the link to the ebay motors page that this boat is on..

And how is this a posting on CL? Where is that link?

Using Moneygram is not something ebay would ever suggest. That alone fails the test and says SCAM!
