On the other hand if you fall for something like this, you probably should not be browsing craigslist...

That's what I do. I've met some sketchy people before and always meet at a restaurant like tacobell or something.

Uhhh? I just said if you fall for an ad posting a tacoma for under 2k, you probably aren't someone who should be using craigslist. Didnt post any links just sharing my opinion. Must not have been clear enough haha

Either way CL is a hassle for me, I'll post something and about 20 ppl will email me but no one will follow up, I've sold 2-3 things successfully out of about 50 postings, too much hassle for me.

That same pickup shows up in the DFW craigslist weekly. Sometimes with different email address, sometimes with different descriptions, always some unheard of cheap price. Flag away. Then again the bozos that fall for it probably deserve spam city theyll get.

I actually replied to a guy using this picture.. he refused to meet and was overseas and wanted to ship it to me and get moneygrahm from me but I luckily walked away.. I bought my 05 from CL in a target parking lot, cash money, giant tatted mexican friend on stand by... This guy needs to get boned with a cactus

Used to see this type thing way more than I do now. Always a super cheap price that is way under market is the clue. That and used to put some hotmail or gmail address or some such in the add quite often. Of course, living in the desert here and having a picture containing ocean and palm trees was a bit of a give away on some lol.

Scammers are just the scum of the earth. I get several emails a day from the fuckers telling me I've won or been left money. Then they ask for all my personal details, bank account number, I.D numbers, name. I would love to get my hands on the bastards.
