We found a 2013 Mercedes Sprinter van on craigslist. We contacted and were responded to by someone named Caroline Herring. She stated "Hello There,
Thank you for contacting me about my 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. It has 51,529, V6 engine, 15/12 PASSENGER seats, automatic transmission and was never involved in an accident. The vehicle is in excellent and immaculate condition. No hidden damage or defects. I have a clear title under my name, free of any liens or loans. The price is firm, $6,200. I am selling it because my husband passed away 2 months ago (he suffered a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories, so I want to sell it as soon as possible.
My daughter and I decided to sell the house and we moved with my parents in Omaha, NE trying to start a new life. Let me know if you are interested in buying it or if you have any questions. P.S. Attached you can find more pictures! Thank you for your interest!
Caroline." We then asked about the location of the vehicle and were told " Thanks for the reply. So our current situation is that my daughter and I decided to go for fresh start so we sold the house and moved to my parents in Omaha, NE. We are trying to start a new life. The vehicle is here in Omaha, stored with all the paperwork at the shipping company (SVC Vehicle Shipping) and ready to be delivered to its new owner. I want to use their escrow and transport services as they offer 100% protection and insurance to both buyer and seller. The best part about this is that you have 5 days to try it out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it, you can send it back at my expense. If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, you can reply with your full name and phone # so I can notify SVC Vehicle Shipping that you are my selected buyer, and they will contact you right away with all the details, with no obligation to buy it.
Regards!" We then replied with our names and phone numbers and received the following e-mail "Just got your info and I'll start the transaction with SVC Vehicle Shipping right away. They will send you the invoice by e-mail, all the instructions and details about your safety and about the sale altogether. After you receive the invoice, in case you decide to buy it you will have to pay through SVC Vehicle Shipping, as they will hold, protect and guarantee your money. You will try it out for 5 days, and if at the end you are happy with it, you can give them the "green light" to release the money to me. Or if not, you can just send it back and get a refund, without paying for the shipping. You will see these guys are great!
Thank you! Caroline" We then received the invoice from SVC Shipping and the image is attached. We called and spoke to someone named Alexander. Alexander gave us all of the instructions over the phone at 402-403-0394. We followed the instructions and completed the process and received a tracking number as well. I called the day before and day we were supposed to receive the vehicle to find out if everything was on track and see if they would call once they were here. They did not answer the phone. Once, the phone was answered by Alexander and he hung up on us.
