buy transaction and shipping

hi there,

I‘m looking around for a Ford E-350 Sportsmobile and found a nice one in the US. No wonder for all of you, I live in Germany and it is here very very rare to go with E-350 Vans.
So, the seller will handle all Van, money, shipping transaction with a company called lislintransport.com.

My question, if anyone here has good/bad experiences with the company.

thanks for any comment
Gunter

Sorry to say, this is likely a scam. Just Google Lislintransport. Best of luck as you continue your search.

Agreed. Sounds like a fake sale.

Since you are in Germany, feel free to post asking for local forum members to look at a van in person for you. Just post something like “Help needed in (city/state)” and then you can handle details via PM. I’ve looked at a local van for a forum member before and was happy to help.

Total scam! DON'T DO IT! Tell us where the van is you are interested in is located. If it's in the DC area I'll go look. Check the classifieds on this site.
Check the listings with Sportsmobile.
Google " ship a van to Germany"

thanks to all for your fast reply,

this is the offer in trovit
https://cars.trovit.com/listing/2005....1w1GxQ1JC1g1r

I‘ve got the VIN and did a search in carfax, clean report. Seller‘s email...

The car belonged to my father who recently passed away. He was the second owner. Now the car is in Proctor, MN crated and ready to be delivered to its buyer with all the documents ( clear title, two set of keys, manuals etc ). Because I will not be able to deal in person I've already arranged the shipping and the title transfer anywhere in the US. I want the payment and shipping to be handled by Lislin Transport.

...
seems, it is not the end of my search

Who would crate an entire vehicle ahead of time, with a 99.8% chance that it would be sold in the US with no need to crate it at all? That and vehicles do not get crated, they get put into shipping containers IF they were going overseas.


The ad states the vehicle has always been registered in CA, yet the vehicle is located in Minnesota?


If you let us know what you are looking for, we can be on the lookout for you.

thanks to all,
seems it save my money and teach me a lot. Many many thanks...

In germany I‘ve never seen an E350 with penthouse top, and all wheel drive is not a must have for me, but I like to have it. 4“ lift on a RWD should be the same view. EB is a must. I will use the Van for my travels to racetracks with my racebike.

If the Van is a fake or not, but it looks like what I would like to have. In the US a diesel is not prefered, but in europe, diesel is cheaper as gas and I like the big diesel engines.

I think the van you seek is right on this site. this is just one example.

The ad you linked located the van in Lynchburg VA. That's 3 hours from me. I would think there is a member closer.

That is the standard seller scam language.

"The car belonged to my father who recently passed away. He was the second owner. Now the car is in Proctor, MN crated and ready to be delivered to its buyer with all the documents ( clear title, two set of keys, manuals etc ). Because I will not be able to deal in person I've already arranged the shipping and the title transfer anywhere in the US. I want the payment and shipping to be handled by Lislin Transport."

They are almost always in the military or can't access the vehicle.

IT IS A SCAM.

Plus, the link through trovit shows an awesome SMB that would be sold if it were legit. That is probably a $40-$50k listing.

Here it is listed for $62,000

Also, you can reverse google image search the picture or search google for the text of any ad to see if it is posted anywhere else. That's how I found the link to the other ad.
