Tractor Scam in New Haven, CT

Hello there,

First of all I want to thank you for your interest in my tractor. The 2007 John Deere 4720 TB is still available and the price of $7,150 includes all the shipping costs and insurance, so you won't have to pay any extra charges.

The tractor has 58 HP/50 HP PTO, 4WD, hydrostatic transmission, looks and works like new, comes with a JD 400CX Self Leveling Loader with 4 in 1 72” bucket, Plus 72” Tooth Bar Removable. It only has 190 pampered hours on it.

I'm selling at a low price because I have opened a farm two years ago in Eugene, OR but the farm is not working anymore and I decided with my husband to cover some money by selling all the units that we have. The tractor will be shipped from here through Dependable Auto Shippers and it will take around 3-4 working days.

Giving the nature of this transaction we can escrow the payment with Google Checkout, and this way you're not buying something sight unseen. If you are not aware of this program you should know that it will allow you to test drive and inspect the tractor before paying me. You will have a 15-days inspection period to decide whether you want to keep the tractor or not before they release the funds to me.

I hope that you will understand our situation. Please get back to me and let me know if you are interested in the purchase.
