There has been a new scam JD tractor on my local Craigslist 3 days running from three different people. They all look and sound to good to be true. I responded to the first one and received the following response.
My name is Donna Heller, I'm emailing you regarding the 1999 John Deere 4x4 4100 that I have for sale. Diesel Compact Gear Drive tractor w/ loader and 60" belly mower. It has been very well maintained and always stored under roof, the machine has only 104 hours on it. Everything works on the tractor and there are no leaks and it is all original. It has been very well maintained. Besides the loader and the belly mower, it also comes with a box blade grader and a yard/road trailer. Also included is a trailer ball bar for the 3 point hitch. The yard trailer has an extra set of wheels so it can be used on the road as well as in the field. I am selling it at this price ($2,450 last price) because I just went through a divorce with my ex-husband and when it has finished, I remained the owner of this tractor. I have some financial problems right now, so I want to sell it asap and a fast sale can be done only at a low price.
The transaction will be made through Amazon protection program for the safety of both of us.
If you're interested to purchase just email me with your full name and shipping address(street address,city,state and zipe code), so I can notify Amazon that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.
I responded with a desire to inspect the machine, bring cash and close the deal at her local police station so she could feel safe. No response back and similar adds with different posters the last two days.
CAVEAT EMPTOR if it looks to good to be true you know it is.
