Default anybody seen this?

went on craigslist just to fart around and look at trucks and this popped up lol

How to recognize a vehicle scam attempt on CL:
•Shipping a vehicle to you is suggested by seller
•eBay Motors or another intermediary is specified by seller
•Payment by Western Union or a money wire is requested
•Price is unusually low (fraction of blue book value)
If you see these tell-tale signs, flag ad as "prohibited" and avoid

Offers to ship a vehicle are virtually 100% fraudulent

eBay has no involvment in craigslist for sale ads, and any eBay or similar emails or web pages you receive are fake

Never use Western Union or wire transfer to pay for goods - only a scammer will ask for this, and any funds sent will be lost

Do not buy vehicles site-unseen, regardless of low price. The vehicle does not exist, and any money you send will be lost.


Stories about divorcees or departing servicemen needing to sell quickly at a low price are generally fraudulent

If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

More information is available for avoiding scams

Yea. Back when I was looking to buy a new truck, I found two amazing offers I couldn't resist to look at. Both told me the same story about how they were being sent over to Iraq and that they could ship the truck to me in a cargo container. It would be a simple money swap.

Just stay away from that nonsense. Like the Missouri saying goes "show me"... I won't buy anything that expensive without seeing and testing it out first.
