Scam Description

I answered an ad on Craigslist and he emailed back saying the RV was on consignment with Repurpose Consignment Sales (a well known consignment business, I never heard of them). The so called owner’s email included a ID number for the RV which I inquired about on the website of the consignment company. The website company had contact information but did not have the personnel to answer the phone so I emailed the company as requested. They did respond within the 24 hours as stated. The website claims to have many locations but could not find a location for the city where the RV was suppose to be located. I also wanted to view the RV but email correspondence said I could only see the RV a couple of weeks later (as they were too busy with so many customers) and may be sold before the viewing. The website email wanted me to register with them with bank information. The scam is that you register with the company with payment information and the ID number of the item you want (gotten from Craigslist or Ebay) and they will mail or even ship you the item (cars and RVs) and you have 10 days to accept the item. If you do not like it, you can return it. All shipping included. (seller pays shipping both ways – thus forcing better descriptions of items)
