Watch out seems to be a scam

I went to phoenix this last week, and while doing nothing, searched for svt parts around me to find any deal. And seems like i found it!

look, 2003 red zx5 svt for 2400 never crashed, mint etc

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/ptd/2932602328.html

The same car is listed all around Arizona, i asked the seller for his address to see it but he wants to proceed with google checkout because he is in army training or something, i searched about google checkout and it seems like buying cars this way for so cheap is a kind of fraud that has been going for some time now, watch out peeps!

here is what he or she told me when i said i could pay cash
"Hello again,

Let me explain you something please. The reason I chose to sell my car through a 3rd party like Google Checkout in this situation, is because I just can't meet any potential buyer as I am in a military base doing my final stage of trainings before getting deployed. At the moment I'm stationed in Fort Collins, Colorado making final preparations before deploying to Afghanistan with the U.S. Convoy. On the other hand, as I work in the military I can deliver it for free. The Logistic Department will deliver it for me.
The car is already at our Military Logistic Department from U.S. Army base near Fort Collins, Colorado, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the car to your home. The shipping is included in price.
That is why I decided to offer you 7 days time inspect period.
If something won’t be like you expected to be you can return it without any expense. It will come with all the paper work. The payment will be released after you get to test and inspect the car for 7 days.
If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your Complete Name and Shipping Address to open a case with Google Checkout they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. I'll start the official procedure, and Google Checkout will contact you about this. You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them in the next 24 hours.

Thanks and take care.

Tina Parker"

The military would never get involved in a deal like that.
