Good thing you checked here before proceeding with the transaction. There are so many greedy evil people out there trying to take advantage of others.

Good luck in your search!

Mary

Robbie, watch out , I found a few A/S on craigslist that all had the same photo, when I asked for more info, I got the same reply you did, to contact a Global Shipper, make my check out to a 3rd party, etc. Its a big scam.

This is the ad the scammer has run for over a year on Craigslist in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin, somtimes he lists it at 5K, recently I saw his ad change to 30K.
Airstream Model International CCD/Bambi (Indianapolis)

I wonder how much dough he has made doing this?

Do you have a particular range of years you're looking for? I'm sure having a bunch of other eyes looking out for you wouldn't hurt...

This one is on again NOW for Jackson, MI.

Looking for a friend so I emailed the seller. (I KNEW too good to be true...) She offered to list a private auction so I could pay though ebay. I replied I wasn't too far from there and would drive over today to view the trailer. What do you know?? "The trailer has been shipped to her brother in Las Vegas who says after payment he'll ship it back for free"

YIKES I told my friend to not be so anxious as this is NOT an up-and-up seller.

One IMMEDIATE tip-off on these scams is the extremely poor use of the English language. I realize not everyone writes the language as well as they speak it, but just look closely at that ad (as well as all of the other scams) and you'll see the pattern of poor grammar, poor spelling, and the misuse of colloquialisms. This is common and repetitive in all of those scam ads and Nigerian Prince-style e-mails. Same goes for the constant phishing e-mails most of us receive from our "banks" that ask us for all sorts of personal information our banks would already have.

Glad you stayed away from this one. Anything THAT convoluted is meant to be, for whatever reasons.

Are you still looking for an Airstream?

I may have to sell my 2005 Classic 30' if you are still looking for a used one. I have not even posted it online for sale yet, I breaks my heart to even think about having to sell it, but I may have too. If you are interested in hearing about it let me know and I can send pictures and such.

Hi Robbie,

Don't know if you've had any better luck, but I search all US Craigslist postings for Airstreams all the time (just in case I find something I can't pass up). I came across this one today and thought of you. I don't know if they're on the up-and-up, or if you're willing to travel to VT, or even the exact condition of the trailer, but thought you might like to look into it. Good luck!!
