I received this information from someone who found a horse trailor for sale.

Horse Trailer advertised on unbelievably low price (of
course raises suspicions right away - $10,000 trailer - "never had a horse
in it" for $2350 - seller pays all shipping - from Texas to Ohio - way too
good to be true...)
I followed up with seller - originally posted on the Free Horse Ads web
site as being in Ohio.  However, seller has "just divorced and moved to a
new job in Texas" - got trailer in divorce proceedings and does not have a
drivers licence (Sounds like they probably use this line in selling cars
via scam as well).  Not available for calls or for trailer viewings - too
busy - will not return a phone number for contact.
Got emails from "ebay" with the following web site addresses - obviously
not ebay since these are European email addresses

eBay Invoice <>
Said I would receive an invoice from ebay - and transaction would all go
through the e-bay vehicle protection program.  Note - if the transaction
does not go through ebay then the Vehicle Protection Program does not
apply!!!  Also - from due diligence - ebay uses pay pal - not Western
Union.  I received the following invoices - asking to wire money via
Western Union - a classic scam because there is no protection to get refund
or protect payment if you use Western Union.  Here are the two emails I
received: they have ebay logos and pictures and art all over them that may
not be visible below.
The scam is not very sophisticated - they have an incorrect description of
the "vehicle" and some of the info does not make sense for a horse
Hope this helps others...
