What a tease tho!! Whoever that car really belongs to has a nice one. Looks well taken care of despite the fact the ad is fake.

I'd laugh if someone snagged the pics off here or FJ.

Same add here in Jacksonville, it seemed believable because of all the military here and thought about picking it up for a project, now I'm just shaking my head

To all: If a Craigslist add has no phone number or separate email address (besides the auto generated CL one), don't even bother thinking its a deal.

Plus it's a dead giveaway when there is text as part of the pics (look between the two rows of pics). Every time I have EVER seen that, it's been a fake.

BEWARE ITS A SCAM!!

Its listed in my area too. Person said cars located in Colorado and says is ready to ship. They won't let anyone see the car. Only will use Google checkout but beware its a scam. It sounds slightly legit but trust me there a scam artist saying that they have to go off to Afghanistan. Its BS and the Google checkout seems to be real but its a fake copy and you will lose the money. For shots and giggles I offered them 500 for it b.c I said I couldn't see it in person. They said OK with no problems... SCAM! Google checkout Craigslist car scam..Google it!

I'm always hoping to find some that doesn't know what they have. Or a vindictive ex-wife/girlfriend. "Just get this thing out of here."

That same ad was in the Colorado Springs craigslist about a week ago, I was so tempted to reply to that but then realized that it was a scam.
