    2011 TESLA ROADSTER S . 880 KMS. LOOKING TO SELL. TO A CONFIDENT BUYER WHO KNOWS THE AMAZING CAPABILITY OF AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE. YOU MUST HAVE VALID DRIVERS LICENSE. RUSS NARAIN 778-855-1978/ EMAIL:: [email protected]
    WE ARE SERIOUS SELLERS. THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU CAN COME UP WITH A DEPOSIT OF $5500/ AND MEET ME THE SELLER IN VANCOUVER. PUT A DEPOSIT DOWN, FILL OUT OUR BUYER/DEPOSIT FORM, MUST THEN WAIT. WHEN VEHICLE IS READY FOR DELIVERY AND SALE, AND IF FOR ANY REASON BUYER IS NOT SATISFIED WITH QUALITY OF VEHICLE, THE DEPOSIT IS FULLY REFUNDABLE PROMPTLY. IF YOU AINT SERIOUS DONT WASTE MY TIME. RUSS- 778-855-1978.
    The Roadster is the first production automobile to use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production BEV (all-electric) to travel more than 200 miles (320 km) per charge.[8] The world distance record of 501 km (311 mi) for a production electric car on a single charge was set by a Roadster on October 27, 2009, during the Global Green Challenge in outback Australia, in which it averaged a speed of 25 mph (40 km/h).[9][10] In March 2010, a Tesla Roadster became the first electric vehicle to win the Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally and the first to win any Federation Internationale de l'Automobile-sanctioned championship when a Roadster driven by former Formula One driver Érik Comas beat 96 competitors for range, efficiency and performance in the three-day, nearly 1,000-kilometer (620 mi) challenge.[11]

    According to the U.S. EPA, the Roadster can travel 244 miles (393 km) on a single charge[12] of its lithium-ion battery pack, and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 3.7 or 3.9 seconds depending on the model. The Roadster's efficiency, as of September 2008, was reported as 120 mpgge (2.0 L/100 km). It uses 135 Wh/km (21.7 kW·h/100 mi, 13.5 kW·h/100 km or 490 kJ/km) battery-to-wheel, and has an efficiency of 88% on average.[13]

    Tesla will sell the Roadster until early 2012, when its supply of Lotus Elise gliders is expected to run out, as its contract with Lotus Cars for 2,500 gliders expired at the end of 2011. [14][15] Tesla stopped taking orders for the Roadster in the U.S. market in August 2011.[16][17] The next generation is expected to be introduced in 2014 and will not be based on the Lotus gliders but instead on a shortened version of the architecture developed for the Tesla Model S.[18] Featuring new options and enhanced features, the 2012 Tesla Roadster will be sold in limited numbers only in Europe, Asia and Australia. Tesla's U.S. exemption for not having special 2-stage passenger airbags expired for cars made after the end of 2011 so the last Roadsters can not be sold in the American market.[3][19] Also a total of 15 Final Edition Roadsters were produced to close the manufacturing cycle.

    This has a spammy feel to it with the ALL CAPS opening, the copy-and-paste bit with un-linked footnotes (likely from Wikipedia), and the clearly out of place steering wheel image. It got caught in our spam filters, but I'll let it through anyway. If you're interested, be sure to use good judgement.

    At first I thought maybe Al and Ed's had got hold of it. Would have taken some pretty radical surgery to make it look like that though!

    Well most of the post is a copy/paste from Wikipedia or some other source, so unsurprising.

    Looks like the same listing was copy/pasted multiple places:
    Free Auto Shopper: 2011 TESLA ROADSTER S. - Bellingham
    2011 TESLA ROADSTER S


    Same roadster picture as from this listing:
    http://apps.facebook.com/marketplace/view/2011-tesla-roadster-s/2987655231-bellingham-wa/

    Phone number seems to be for Vancouver, B.C.

    Other listings using that phone number:
    http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?id=239796162783603&story_fbid=239818582781361
    2011 CADILLAC ESCALADE. LUXURY.
    They seem to have a web site of sorts:
    http://ragstorichesllc.com/index_files/Page1211.htm
    (Shows the same email contact)

    The ragstorichesllc site shows this contact info:
    Smells very fishy.

    Not sure if this is a scam, or just a sloppy/spammy dealer.

  8. are you also related to a king in Nigeria?

    Some major problems, the second pic is not even a Roadster 2.5
    Third pic looks like the interior of a Roadster 2.0
    smells like a scam

    The phone number is for a Fido cellphone in the Vancouver area.

    Also: http://www.facebook.com/RagsToRichesLlc - joined Facebook the same day the ad went up, and the picture is a car in front of a Porsche dealership.

    Smells fishy.

    I just got an e-mail telling me I have $6 million in a Nigerian bank account, can I use that to put down the deposit?

    I don't think he needs that much, Nigel. After deposit, you should have $5,995,000 left in the account. Well, unless there is a wiring fee.

    Sounds like he would take the $5 500 deposit and while you're "waiting" he is busy taking multiple deposits from as many other people as he can before he then disappears and no one gets a car - if one even existed in the first place.

    The other classic tactic of the scammer is to try to sound legitimate by playing the victim and accusing you of being a scammer or time waster: "DO NOT CALL OR RESPOND IF YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO DEFRAUD OR CATCH ME IN YOUR SCHEMES. REAL SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY." :rolleyes:

    Shouldn't this thread just be locked and probably deleted before someone actually does respond?

    Deleting the thread would mean deleting the insightful posts here. Should they turn out to be correct, they would be useful for helping PREVENT someone falling into the trap...

    Good point. Not everyone reads entire threads though. If this is a scam, maybe the mods can add a warning to the title of the thread 'likely scam' or something similar.
