eBaytruck no delivered

After I make the payment by Western Union. The truck never was delivered to my attention see one of the email from the seller:Victoria and Marcus Shields [victoria.[protected]]
Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but I will explain all the details about the car and the transaction.
At the moment I'm stationed at Las Vegas, NV making final preparations before deploying to Iraq with the U.S. Convoy.

The car is already at our Military Logistic Department in Bethesda, MD, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department will deliver the car to your home. I will cover the shipping cost, so don't worry it's free. Since the car is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistic Department can deliver it, because the car is in their custody.
Shipping may take anywhere between 2 to 4 business days depending on the destination. All documents you need for ownership, manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the car.
For the payment I would like to use eBay as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the car and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the car. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the car before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 10 days to inspect the car . If you decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us.

I'll start the official procedure, and eBay will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with:
- Your Full Name - Required by eBay (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.)
- Your Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistic Department (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the car).
Here is the VIN 5TEHN72N53Z176892
Again I want to point out that because I am going to Iraq this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible.
Best Regards !

    I was looking for a good car from craigslist. I noticed there was a good deal listed. A 2007 Toyota Camry for $3, 300. I was interested in the deal so I emailed them back. The deal was that they wanted my full name address and phone number so that they can start an account with eBay. The car would be shipped at their expense. I was willing to drive to Las Vegas, NV to test drive and pick up car. They insisted that it would be easier that they deliver it to me and the payment would be handled thru eBay. I researched the name of the military base she was claiming had the car ready to go. I then came across the a page that had the exact email from the seller word for word with a complaint. I emailed her back with my concerns and letting her know that i know it is a scam and that i was not going to fall for it.

    Google the VIN number, that scam has been posted all over. An 03 Tacoma for $2, 900? Seriously?

    You know it says on Craigslist not to deal with anyone wanting you to wire money. If you took the time to look it would show the examples of the very same email you received. Also, that email you think was from ebay? Click where it says from: it didn't come from ebay. The vehicle did not exist. You got suckered in on a too good to be true scam.
