This 2003 Toyota RAV4, VIN# JTEGH20V630119847,runs and drives
excellent.have full service history. Only 49,087 miles! Transmission is
Automatic shifts smoothly, the RAV4 has all of its original floor mats
and complete set of keys. It has no leaks and does not smoke.I bought it
when i was serving in Fort Belvoir, U.S. Army base and now I am
deployed in Madrid, Spain. The car will be delivered from Florida, US. I
have dropped my price to $3,450 since this is an Urgent Sale! and I
need to sell it before May 17th, when I will be deployed in Iraq with my
platoon replacing the troops to come home. If you're interested to
purchase please email me back!
and then I emailed her back saying I was interested and that first I wanted to see the car and then if I decided I wanted it, I would pay cash and this is what "she" replied
If you are interested to purchase the car I want you to know that the
transaction fits the Google Checkout protection plan. Google Checkout
reimburses buyers who are involved in a vehicle transaction through
their program. The program provides reimbursement for all the situations
that can appear in a transaction. A deposit of $3,350 will be sent to
Google Checkout. After the payment is received and secured by Google
Checkout, they will inform me about that and I will start the shipping.
The delivery process will take 3 days and it will be a door to door
service so the car will be delivered directly to your home address. From
the moment you receive it you have a 5 days inspection period. After
the 5 days you have to decide if you want to keep the car or not. If
you'll keep it, they will release the payment to me. In case you will
not like the car and decide not to keep it, you will get a full refund
of $3,350 from Google Checkout and the car will be shipped back on my
expense. If you agree I will need your name, shipping address and your
phone # in order to register the deal with Google Checkout. Sorry for
the long email. I have tried to touch all bases. Waiting for your reply.
Thank you, Amber
