    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.

    It definitely stinks... the english being slightly off always gives it away.

    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.
