Must be but it's really hard to believe. Guess it's true that there is a sucker born every day.

I too am a big Craigslist person, especially for used guitars. Actually I've sold a couple cars on there too.

texascc I love Craigslist for everything EXCEPT vehicles. When I was Jeep shopping, there were literally more scams than actual legit listings. They really need to try and weed out the crooks better. Besides that, they are a great site. I came across an Acura NSX with only 20K miles and in perfect condition for only $7500. Of course I inquired and got the standard "I'm in London on business, but send me a deposit and I'll give you more directions" response. Does anyone actually fall for these scams?

And yes, I responded.....

I hate craigslist.
...and it's still going on today, as I had two very similar Wrangler experiences. I now figure if it sounds too good, I just ignore it.

tiny terror Some of my fondest high school memories are of a 6'4" cowboy I dated...... we looked stupid together. I think I came up to just about his armpits on a good day.

Triple88a what i hate the most is that from lies like those you get messed up and dont trust true and honest people that want to buy your car.. for me the guy that actually ended up buying the car.. he was from indiana.. he never looked at the car but was saying he will buy it.. i was scared to take his money man.. i felt like what if they are fake.. i sold my car on my bank's parking so i could add the money while he was there..

I trust you that you will take the 5k you're asking for your car and send the rest of the money back to me with the car. You can use some of the left over money to ship the car.
Now that's a new one to me. I received offers to overpay to cover shipping but not in this form. You'll find scam artists no matter where you look. I ran across them in autotrader, cycletrader, craigslist and e-bay. There are people trying to scam you regardless of whether you're buying or selling. If you think the deal is too good to be true...it is. One guy told me that he was in London for work...I said...that's fine, I have friends there that are more than happy to look at the car for me. Never heard from him again.

Levinoss I found my jeep on craiglists, I went to go see it and drive it and did a lot of research before I gave him the nice big check.

It sucks that there are so many scam artists.

Jeepluv07 Ive seen the same scam on ebay with ATVs all the time. I would love to find the people who actually fall for this. Im sure I could scrap up a thing or two to sell them.
