    Of course it's a scam. I see them all the time and the "richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN richmond, IN" part is common to them all.

    Also, isn't that a pressure tank sitting out in the yard? Don't it get a bit chilly in IN for that?

    I couldn't see that ad as it has been removed but if it's as described have seen a number of them on craigslist.

    I inquired on a Polaris Ranger that was for sale in Kentucky not too far from my sister's place but was told that the item was not in Kentucky as listed, but was in Montana and at the shipping location as the guy was out of the Country. I played the game with him for a bit by telling him that my luck must be absolutely incredible as my sister lives not 10 minutes from where the item was located so I could have her come by to pick it up . I told him that since I was getting such a great deal on the item he was selling that I would not even request a discount since he didn't have to ship it. We had two or three more exchanges before he wised up and stopped replying to me. These guys all seem to run the same style of ad. I suppose the Nigerian relative bit has run its course so they've moved on to bigger and better scams!

    I emailed a guy on craigslist about a JD 4320 for like $5K when I first got the idea of looking for a tractor. Turns out, he was stationed on one of the BP oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico and needed to sell his tractor because he was moving down there. All I needed to do was wire him the money and he would have it delivered. All these lowball prices on tractors, motorhomes, etc. are always scams. Who would really sell something for like 20% of its value?

    Just copy and paste the ad's title into google and you can usually come up with the exact same posting/price/pictures in several different cities.

    Seller is always out of town out of county out of his mind you will not be able to view because it will not be there. That tractor is not even his it is someone else's. The person steals the pictures fakes the add and the poof steals your wired money flag it so some rube dose not get took.
    It's how you deal with people rather than how people deal with you.

    The ad's gone now, but the next one you see copy the whole title less the price into google. You'll find the same ad repeated on craigslists all over the country.

    Here's on that's still up John Deere 790 Tractor with 300 Loader 4 wheel drive 27 hp mint condition - $2860 http://roswell.craigslist.org/grd/2305044448.html

    Here's the google search for it

If it comes from where he says he is and I can go see it all, I'm going to at least see what's up with it. I'm not 100% convinced that it's legit but I'm also not automatically calling it a hoax unless I get evidence that it is indeed a hoax. And I emailed a short while ago so I'll see what's up soon enough...
    A low price tractor on Craig's list is evidence enough to be guilty of a scam. You must prove that it is not.

    That is the Glen Beck Fan philosophy.


    So, how is your "I'm also not automatically calling it a hoax unless I get evidence" working for you?

    If something was THAT good of a deal they wouldn't have to advertise it on Craig's list. They could sell it to a dealer for more than they are asking or an acquaintance of theirs would have already bought it.

    There's an old saying that applies here...if it's too good to be true is PROBABLY is. Craig's list is well known for scams. Sure, there are honest people with honest items on there, but the idea you can buy something for almost nothing is pretty naive. You would have to be living in a complete vacuum to not be aware of scams, particularly on Craig's list. It's on tv, newspapers, and the internet every single day.

    BUYER BEWARE! Use common sense. If you don't have any, you better have some good friends.

    I've sold a few things on cl. Had good luck. Just didn't respond to the ones I've been reading about on here. Like the don't have time to come look at/pick up check senders.

    My cl account has now been hacked and they are posting from it. I've erased four false ads already. One was a sweet 4520 tlb for $4500. ***holes
