    Your email and your money if you are stoopid enough to send them money for 'shipping'..

    Yes, I'd say just like the Nigerian scams - some concocted story to coerce you into sending your hard-earned money to them so they can steal it.

    $10,850 for a loaded 2009 kubota B3030. I actually inquired about this tractor and the reply was that the tractor is in Nebraska, not Memphis, and they wanted to use Google Wallet to arrange the deal. Google Wallet does not allow high dollar deals like car, truck, boat, or TRACTOR transactions.
    That same ad ran in the Cleveland PD.

    I know it happens but its hard to believe people are ignorant enough to send money to places/people they know nothing about.

    Funny you say this, I just went on craigslist and noticed a too good to be true deal with no phone number. I'm sure after you e-mail them then they will set the hook and try to get you to send money. here is the link

    In some cases, they are simply after your email address to add to a mailing list to sell.

    Same with the clowns that respond to something you list on Craig's List that ask "Do you still have the item ?" ( they are too lazy, or using a web bot, to even bother to reference WHAT you have for sale )

    Craigs now hides your email from each other.. Even if you respond through your email client, it'll go through the craigslist servers..
