$400 and the photos look immaculate. Being the nice guy I am I sent them an email saying they had it way under priced.

The is was the reply that totally screams of made up scam identity theft phishing.

********** I'm glad you're interested in buying my Miller Bobcat 250 Welder Generator This generator is in excellent condition. I'm selling it at this final price of $400 because my husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it asap. I also got a new job and moved to Hamilton, MT, and many other things have priority now, so this generator has to go. Hr 153 11,000 watt generator AC/DC Runs and Welds Great I would like to clarify some things. Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay Motors so my presence isn't necessary. They won't give me any money until you receive and test the generator. The generator is at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The delivery process is managed by me. You got 5 days to test and inspect the generator. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name, shipping address and phone number. Once I got all the details, I will forward them to eBay and they will proceed with the order. They'll email you with all the information that you need to complete this deal and also they will confirm that the deal is conducted through them and I'm a legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details. Please let`s not waste each other`s time if you are not decided/interested to buy it.

I also attached more pictures.


Attaching more photos was a nice touch. Not sure why they need my shipping address if its in my home town.
