"Hi, I have received your email regarding the 2003 Toyota Camry XLE with only 64k miles. The car is in perfect condition with clear title, no accidents, no liens or loans and it has just been completely serviced. The engine runs very good and the automatic transmission shifts perfectly. The price for the car is $1,500(including delivery and handling to your address).
I'm selling this car because my child of only 26 years died 2 months ago in a bike accident, the car belonged to my son and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it.
Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and we want to make this deal through eBay's Buyer Protection Program, so if you're interested in purchasing the car just reply me your full name, full address and phone number, so I can notify eBay. Once that is done, they will contact you in the next 24 hours to explain the entire procedure."

It's a very common scam
Craigslist and Ebay have nothing to do with each other. If the car is not listed on Ebay.com and you don't bid AND PAY on Ebay.com then Ebay will never be involved
Also to be protected by Ebay the car has to be located less than 250 miles from you and you are required to inspect the car in person BEFORE paying for it. You also cannot have the car shipped. To be protected you have to meet the seller at the time of payment and have him sign the title over to you and a Bill of Sale in person before you take the car.
These Nigerian scammers target people who don't understand how Ebay works

This scam is so common, Ebay has a whole page warning users about it http://pages.motors.ebay.com/buy/securit…
"eBay's Vehicle Purchase Protection* covers only certain vehicle transactions that are completed on eBay.com. If a Craigslist or non-eBay seller 'promises’ you the eBay protection plan, this is false and almost certainly a scam and you should walk away."

"FACT: eBay provides Vehicle Purchase Protection only for transactions that START AND ARE COMPLETED ON the eBay Motors website (other terms and conditions apply). In addition, eBay does NOT hold payments or extend protection for non-eBay conducted transactions.

The only way to buy a vehicle on eBay is by logging into your eBay account with a user ID/email address and password. One of the following needs to be true:

You were the winning bidder on the auction
You clicked 'Buy it now'
You sent a best offer and the seller accepted it
In these cases, the item will always appear in the purchase history of your eBay account."

It says right there that you are only protected on transactions that "start and are completed" on Ebay, nowhere else. If the transaction starts on any other site like Craigslist or anything else, you are not covered under Ebay's buyer protection. So unless you first found the car listed on Ebay, eBay will not be involved and you have ZERO protection

The "family member who owned it died tragically" is a pretty common scam. It could be true of course, but I'd be very wary. The price being so low screams scam/

100% Scam.

The poster is probably in West Africa. The car doesn't exist.

He (the poster is probably man pretending to be woman) is only mentioning the child's death to tug on your heart strings and to get you to let your guard down.
