Official Craigslist Thread
 
Today on Craigs list a co-worker and I spoted some fake adds for the DSM region

A 2001 Accord EX for 2995 - no mileage or ph # posted
A 1997 BMW M3 black 5spd for 5900 and looked like it was in perfect condition (normally go for $12,000 pluss easy. No ph # or email posted. weird paragraph of writing above pictures that had nothing to do about cars.. .

Just watch yourself and don't get your hopes up too high if the poster doesn't leave a phone number:spoiled:

uhuh, this is nothing new

these scams are usually very easy to pick out, whether because they are all in the same format or they have smaller writing under the pics

Why don't you buy this instead? It's more suiting to your personality.

Wow, for it to be a 5 Speed and local is super rare. 5 Speed bone stock cars like that are going for double that price on forums.

Craigslist scam
 
Too good to be true...so I had to put it to a test.

Still for sale? If so, why are you selling it?

Thanks,

Hello,

Sorry for the delayed response, but I'm in United Kingdom right now and I have been very busy. Anyway,thank you for your interest in buying the car.Why is the price so low? I am going trough a divorce, and I had to move in UK.I cannot register the car here, as it is made for USA , according to USA standards. So all that I want to do now is to sell the car at this price, because I need to sell it fast (I've already made a deposit here to buy me another).The title is clean and you will have absolutely no problems to register the car.It is in immaculate condition ,rust free ,no scratch and hasn't been involved in any accident.It has 60,909 miles.The motor runs very well(6 CYLINDERS 2.5 Liters), transmission automatic.The interior looks great(NO SMOKING).This car needs nothing.I want this transaction to go smoothly enough as I am caught in the middle of some very important events and have little time at my disposal.I already have tones of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out. The price is $2700,00.THIS IS MY LAST PRICE. I will not negotiate the price.Also, I'll take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the car ,to be sure that I don't waste my time with endless discussions.This way,I shall be assured of the serious intentions.
PS: Click for more pictures http://www.use.com/6e7dc30e44efe802df52
So if you are interested please email me.

Regards!

Thanks for the prompt reply. I am very interested in the car. When will you be back to the US for me to check out the car? I have the cash ready to buy. Would you have the VIN# for the car by any chance?

Thank you in advance,
Han

Hello ,
As I told you in my first e-mail, I am in United Kingdom.Before leaving I had prearranged the deal with eBay Motors so my presence isn't necessary. The car is in London ,UK at the shipping company,ready to be delivered.The shipping cost is included in the total price of the car!You have 5 days to test it and inspect the car. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you:
full name and address, shipping address and phone #
After I will have all this details I will forward them to eBay Motors and I will proceed the order. eBay Motors will contact you with all the details that you need to complete this deal and also to see that i am covered by them and that I am legit seller. Waiting your email with the requested details.

Regards!!
The email chain ends here. A car "immaculated" like this sells for around $11K. $2700 for this? In the UK? Free shipping? No VIN# when I asked. Hell no. :cheers:

Craigslist Super Scam
 
http://quadcities.craigslist.org/cto/2120954028.html

Check what this guy is saying this teg has and you can clearly see the motor is still a b18a or b18b without any major modifications. The ad says the car is pushing 302 whp and I don't see a turbo, not even any real mods... still running stock fuel lines, stock manifold, and the pic of a b18c is not even in the car...

Be on the look out.... he said it sold today for 5k... tell your buddies and we might be able to find out who unfortunately bought it...

BILLisJDM!!! 12/22/2010 08:30 AM

Re: Craigslist Super Scam
 
That's a nice B18C he has in there O_o
