    & yep, its too good to be true !! Don't even bother with it dude, I saw this same (or similiar) ad on Craigs too here in San Diego. I figured it was bogus but ya never know, so I replied & a day later they responded with some BS about how the owner of the truck is getting ready to deploy back to Afghanistan, so I replied again with a "Hey I've got the cash & I'll pay what you want if everything is good to go (the truck exist, have clear title all that shit) Needless to say they never responded back after I made it clear that I'd have to physically see the truck, its a fairy tale.....:cool:

    This truck has also been listed in
    LA
    Oklahoma City
    Scotts Bluff
    Eau Claire
    Detroit

    I always flag them when I see them. E-mail "him". I guarantee one of the following will be true:
    A) "she" is selling the truck because of a divorce
    B) the truck will not be able to be seen because it is being stored somewhere
    C) the transaction will be handled through Ebay.

    I think I will e-mail "it" and see what happens. I like fucking with these douchebags.

    I can see that the ad is a scam, $12990 would be more like it.

    But are those Ford Ranger 4x4 decals that I see on the bed?... :confused:

    So he is being deployed to Afghanistan to fight in the war.....??? So that means we should be able to shoot this F_cker on site for scamming, right?....:infantry:

    These f_ckin scams are all over craigslist. I had to weed out sooooo many while looking for my truck.
