    Let me guess...it is all advertised for $3500 and you must reply to shar.staples@gmail.com - right?

    I've replied to this ad but I would anticipate that there is going to be some story about how it is in a storage yard and if I just wire the money to an escrow account it will be sent to me and I can get a full refund if I'm not happy.

    The ad that I saw on my local craigslist has all the makings of a scam.

    just a little thing i discovered about those bogus CL ads if you highlight the entire ad as if you were going to copy it and you will see hidden fonts if you do just flag the ad its a scam

    I've seen a lot of scams similar to that. I've learned to see what is real and what isn't.

    Hmm I just(an hour ago) sent an email to this ad (listed as a local ad here in WA) then I find this thread. Though I did state cash only and I want to look at it. Nothing they can do with my phone number.

    To many gullible people out there. It amazes me how people fall for these craigslist scams:hammerhead: Maybe i'm in the wrong business. Anyone want to buy a brand new f-350 superduty for $1000? Just send me the cash and ill ship you the truck asap!
