No. If you read my OP I was upset with the seller for all of the run-around. My recent post was an update that I thought was relevant / entertaining. The thing I said "no way" to, was the fact that they wanted me to send money, right away, with out having it checked out, after they had previous problems. I was only bothered this time again becuase again, a fellow member here was willing to go out and help me out, but at the last minute they changed their minds again. I guess in short, I was upset for the run-around.

And just to address other posts...I have bought and sold MANY things off of CL. I myself have sold three cars that way. No matter where you make a purchase, its ALWAYS buyer beware.

Yah this was a bummer, I was actually excited for checking it out and taking some pics and vids for you- yet same thing, calls were sketchy like you said- back and forth about it being for sale or not, and then yes- a sudden change of heart etc. But after all the fuss I had to see what this van was all about, and now...
We never will.

Good luck for next time though!

Again, nothing. Then, at 6pm east coast time, the wife calls up and says, "yeah the van is for sale again, you have first dibs, go ahead and western union us the money." I said no way...last I was told, it wouldnt start, and then there was an engine fire that wasnt sorted out. I said I would have to ask the vanner from here I know to come take a look before I sent any money, and / or finalize on a price. She was fine with that but in a rush. Less than 24 hours later, she texts me again, to let me know that her husband decided to trade the van to square up on some money he owed...


Oh, after reading this post it sounds like you knew the van had problems that you did not want to deal with and then proceeded to contact the seller just to say so. Looking at the other side of the coin, it sounds like the seller didn't want to deal with a buyer waiting to get their ducks in a row for inspection then have another probable mess with shipping.

I think the thing to be really pissed about is these people are probably straight up scam artists.
