No, not my boat. Sent them an email asking about it, got the BS story and then asking to do the deal thru PayPal, needing my account information...

It was a rhetorical question. I want to know what the poster says when you say "Can I go look at it?"

What kind of bullchit excuse does he give?

The 1st tip off is the "Gmail" acct. Never a good sign. These morons are all over Craigslist. Any big ticket item is fodder for them. Cars. Campers, Trucks. You name it. They change their tactics about every 2-3 weeks. You just have to be smarter than them. Unfortunately Craigslist can't keep up with them. I have gotten maybe a dozen of them flagged. Does no good, they just come back with another method to try to scam you.

I agree total scum of the earth.....I remember seeing this ad on the east coast last year.....maybe even 2 years ago it's an old one. Common sense would tell you that $12k seems just a tad bit off what something like that should be selling for. I'm curious if they've actually made any money off of this ad? I'd think most people looking to buy something like that would see right through the bullsheet.
