They seem to have stopped over the summer, at least in the Pittsburgh, PA area. I noticed last week a Kubota CUT for around $3k and had the same though as x320.... they're baaaack!

I noticed a few of these on Craigs List latley. The new scam asks you to click on a link for more information or to contact a seller.

:ditto:

Caveat emptor: "Let the buyer beware". Scammers don't take vacations. They just move their operations to and fro. :banghead3

I get a kick out of the IDIOT that tells me about Buying a tractor at 1/4 price Then he says can you believe it that %$#@&^% took my money and did not send me the tractor.. I scratch my head and ask him where was the tractor he says in Montana And the Guy was getting shipped to IRAN;; In my mind I say Good. You got a heck of a deal $4300.00 for nothing.. If it sounds to good to be true . It isn't True..

And yet another. I've included it as a picture because by the time any of you all get to the listing it will (hopefully) have been flagged for removal.

CALDWELL, Ohio - When a South Carolina man answered a Craigslist ad seeking a farmhand in Ohio, there was no job waiting for him. There was a freshly dug grave.

The man was shot and wounded in what investigators say was a murderous robbery scheme that used bogus help-wanted ads to lure victims. He escaped, but another job-seeker was later found dead in a shallow grave nearby. And two suspects — a man and a 16-year-old boy — are under arrest.
The South Carolina man who escaped to a neighbor's house told the homeowner, Rose Schockling, that he had answered an ad on Craigslist for a job and was told he would be erecting fences for a cattle farm.

But Schockling said there is no farm of the size the man described nearby, with most of the surrounding countryside either woods or strip mines.

The man had been told to bring his belongings with him to Ohio because he would be living at the farm, the sheriff said. Investigators believe robbery was the motive.

A few days after the man went to the police, authorities received a call from the Florida man's sister, concerned that her brother had not been heard from for weeks. The sister said her brother had responded to what she believed was the same Craigslist ad, for a caretaker for cattle on a 688-acre farm.

Found what looked like a deal on a car recently on cars.com There was no phone number so I emailed the seller who claimed to be about 100 miles from me. Got a reply back that they were in the military in Washington state and I could pay for the car and it would be shipped to me. Really made me mad, using the military as a backdrop for their scam, talk about scum. If they had claimed to be a nun leaving for mission work in India I might have fell for it.
