Wherever it's listed for sale, they'll tell you it's somewhere else right now and there currier will handle the deal. Yards yadda! Tell them no info, except it's there lucky day, because you're also at the bogus location, and you'll never hear from them again.

Often with these scam ads the photos are of a legitimate tractor for sale SOMEWHERE.

There was an ad a couple of years ago listing a newish 100HP 4x4/cab/loader MF for $20000 at a dealer in the middle of Halifax(no farm dealers there....), lots of great photos on dealer lot. Said the tractor was local. I could read part of a sign the scammer didn't think to edit out, found the REAL tractor for sale, all the sale pics at a dealership way down in the US.

Some are just obvious:

A nice "John Deere 5310 Agricultural Skip Loader"
Ano tlll drill that gave all kinds of weird measurements, i.e. tire pressure, width in centimeters, seeding rate in kg/m etc.

Just noticed a classified here on TbN for a cherry Bx 23, low hours, clean, etc., for $3000! If it's real, somebody will get a deal!!

Used 2005 Kubota bx23 For Sale $3,000 - KennethTiatro - TractorByNet.com
If you miss that deal, here's one in Miami for $5,000. With loader and backhoe, and includes the snowplow.

If that's too far, the same tractor is also in New Jersey.

Boston! He has trucked that thing all over in the past few hours!



Wait! Here's one in Ventura (Los Angeles) for only $2,500! Why pay more to get the same identical thing .....

The 1st 2nd link looks to be more then a scam. What are they trying to say at the bottom of the add?

I think unique text there evades CL's test for identical posts.
