Are you sure this is a legitimate sale? The Bambi is frequent bait for a scam.

My extra-Bambi II had been used in at least a half dozen Craigslist scams that I know of. The idiots keep using my original photos.

You can always tell a scam when you get a really long email in very poor English. They usually state the name of the item over and over again and ask for money up front. My favorite is the "Toyota forerunner Cummins 4BT" for $2500. That one had me going lol

When it arrives, be sure to post pictures. Everybody says, without pictures, it never happened.
