Quick advice

I found a 03 Camry on craigs list and the asking price was $3300. It appears in sweet shape. This is what the lady mailed to me. What is e-bay secure pay and is there any chance this is legit?

Hi,
First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my car. I sell it at this price ($3300) because i just finished the divorce with my husband.Now as a women i don't need it. This car is in excellent working condition, no scratches, flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working with a clear title.
From the begining you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be made using eBay services.
We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at eBay and I have a purchase protection account for $20,000. The final price that I want for this car is $3300 including shipping and handling costs.
If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name and address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon.
Thanks

Too good of a deal. This car would be worth $15,000 minimum. It was on craigs list and now it is gone. I sent a e-mail telling her I was OK with secure pay or I would hand her cash and she could trust me becasue I worked for the FBI. Like I said, post is off craigs list now. Yea the FBI thing was BS, I am a technical guy at a bank.

The part she didn't tell you was that she'd like you to put down an immediate deposit, and then the car will be delivered within 5 days for the remainder of the money...

Except 5 days later she/he/it will have vanished with your deposit and covered their tracks, not to mention they have a 5 day head start on you and the law...

These guys have guts. Mail I received back. What the heck, here is the e-mail address of the person. Maybe the whole org can mail them and burry them with love.
Ms J [ms_j27@yahoo.com]

I have some problems with my phone.I am still waiting for the phone company,i will let you know when all is solved.
The car is already at the shipping company in Orlando, Florida sealed and ready for the shipping. I have a contract with eBay so this deal must go through them. I'm very busy with my job and I'm left out of the town so I can't meet in person with you so this is the reason why I chose to sell my car over the internet. According with the eBay you have 5 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.
Here is how it will work:
1.First of all I will need the following details from you:
- Full Name
- Full Shipping Address
2. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to eBay.
3. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices. The invoice will send you the details on how to make a refundable payment.
4. eBay will contact me and I will ship the car to you. After you receive the car you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you need to the car. If you will buy, then I will receive the payment details from eBay so that I can pick up the money.
5. If you will decide that you will not buy the car, eBay will refund the money and I will have the shipping company come pick up my car. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. I look forward to hear from you.
Thank you
