Those are on CL all the time. Flag it. Usually they say to e-mail at G-mail...it's fake

I have never understood why or what reason people have to put up bogus ads like these. What are they trying to accomplish by doing this??

3/4s of my Craigslist experience is repeatedly flagging a scam until its removed. Its like a game for me to see how fast I can get it taken down :D

saw a few of those when i was looking but being the cynic that i am i knew better. i did check one out-something along the lines i'm in the service going overseas-i'll freight it to you etc.... mine was a gal trying to sell it-ad disappeared then re appeared from a different surrounding town. not exactly sure how the scam works-but it is a scam.
can't fault CL for them-they do try(somewhat) and there are deals to be had-5 tires/rims $150(for winter) and a brand new sunrider soft top still in the box w/frame, tinted windows, door surrounds etc-$350. the ole adage-if it's too good to be true, it probably isn't definatly applies to CL

Yup. I halfway fell for one. I got lured by the girl thing except the price made more sense... IT was an 03 Sport listed with 80,000 miles for 5,000. It wasn't until after I shot an email that I was able to recognize the terrible English. lol

I don't get it..they would have SO MUCH better luck if they priced it better. $2435 for a friggin' 04 SE? I mean come on!

OK, we know he can't spell - but 30% of those on here can't either.
We know he can't say what he really means - but there are posts on here the same way.

Does that mean we should always ignore them?

Obviously he's uneducated, or not proficient in English.

Is the conclusion it's fake because of the price? Could it be he forgot a 0 or a comma in the price?

But very true, CL is full of scammers and liars. I tried to sell a truck on there once, the scam replies were so bad I stopped answering any of them.

If he's legitimate, he'll re-post it with corrected information. Or find a more legitimate way to sell it.

One of those was posted on my local CL today too:
03, low miles, lift, tons of goodies were listed, and only $2700.

It looked a little like he copied someone's forum sig and used that to describe what he was selling.
IMO, no one would spend that much in upgrades, then sell it off at ANY price, let alone THAT price, lol!

Every one of those I have seen (and I've seen a lot) ALWAYS say to respond to [email protected] I don't know what the deal is with "g-mail" and I don't know how the scam works, but just thought I'd throw that out there.
