Yes, that is a scam.

If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Re: Do you guys think this is a scam?

No reasonable person would sell it for that price, but I've seen stranger things. Call em. You may benefit from a recent divorce.

If I had the cash that just happens to be one of the perks of being a teenager limited cash flow but if it was legit and I sold some of the stuff not that I would do that but I could make some serious dough.

Re: Do you guys think this is a scam?

Gotta be a scam.........ad is still there though.

With that said, my 1st Ford LGT was an ad with no price. Guy was PO'd that the steering broke and wanted it out of his shed. He was driving it when it broke and he ended up in the ditch with the tractor on top of him.....I got it with deck, blade and tiller for $50......So, you never know.

Ill do some more digging and try and find out for sure but that would be sweet if it isn't a scam but thats not very likely.

Re: Do you guys think this is a scam?

Two things: yes It's a scam, the exact same machine was on cl in Iowa today. Secondly...if you see something like that and take time to ask if it's a scam, then you're not gonna be fast enough to beat the next guy to it. If you see a legit bargain you gotta jump in the truck and grab some cash and go or it'll disappear!! When I bought my 420 with tiller and snow blade, it was on cl for like 5 min when I called the guy. We agreed on a price I said I'll be there tomorrow with cash. And I gave him 50 bucks extra just for holding it for me since he said he had like 30 calls!

I figured it was a scam that's why I didn't go after it plus I don't just have a $1000 just laying around if it where a legit deal I would probably be there to get it already but after the first couple replies on this thread it just confirmed what my gut feeling was it's a scam I know all about this kind of thing I missed out on a nice 80 cart for $150 and man was I ticked. I had the cash ready to go and everything.

Re: Do you guys think this is a scam?

Maybe it's not a scam. What would it hurt to call the number and ask some darn questions?

Sometimes when people get sick of stuff, they just want it gone! I have a barely used walk-behind snowblower I want gone. Idle is irregular but it runs just fine under load.

Why are you so scared to call?

'88 Yanmar 187D, loader, shuttle-shift, turfs (what a great little tractor)
'13 Kubota B3200, loader, R4's (talk about a perfect fit)
'15 John Deere X738, 25.5hp Kawasaki, 4X4, 54" auto-connect mower, 47" JD snowblower w/quick hitch, JD snowplow, LP41114 all-weather cab, 42 lb rear suitcase weights, JD front plastic fenders, JD seat cover (nice all-around riding lawnmower)

Well I'm a teenager and I don't have a phone if I did I would call. And I never said I was scared to call or email I just know now its a scam so theres no point in wasting my time calling or writing an email. Plus there is some pretty creepy people on craigslist so I have to be careful.
