Is this a scam?

So I was just looking around on Craigslist and saw this 2005 4runner for $2465.....

http://neworleans.craigslist.org/ctd/3995647906.html

I sent an email to the seller and this is the response I got back....



What are y'all thoughts?

Absolutely a scam, go no further. When something on CL looks too good to be true, it almost always is. With the internet and how quickly people can value something, anything that is thousands below book value is some guy you don't want to do business with.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Guessing you're new to Internet/CL?

Just messing with you. Yea, that's about a classic of a scam as you can get.

lol there are tons of these on CL. I once saw an ad for two basically brand new Honda Rincons and an atv trailer for like $4,500. Each one of those atvs alone is over $9,000 new.

E bay does not have a financial department to handle 3rd party sales.

Several months ago I saw an ad for a Chevrolet pickup being sold by a single woman who moved from Minnesota to NJ, was broke, needed money and wanted to fund it through E-bay Financial. I sent an email and asked if I can look at it first as it wasn't far from where I lived.

I received a response that I was to give her a certified check and that the truck was out of state and she would pay for the shipping. I responded that I will not give her money for a vehicle I cannot look at and that I thought you said you were broke, wouldn't the shipping be more than the deposit? I never heard back.

That's like this guy has the ad listed in New Orleans...yet he is in Washington....kind of weird. Said shipping to me was free since its on a base.
