Scam

This ad is an exact duplicate of my classified except for the ridiculous price. It's probably the same scammer who agreed to pay $43,000 AFTER I sent his "agent" $1000 via Western Union to pick it up.

Questionable Classified Items

Two suspect Classified listings today, both by new members who both joined today and listed "their" trailers at about the same time today:

"2014 Airstream Sport 22' Virginia $14,900"

and

"2009 Airstream Flying Cloud 23' Wisconsin $20,000"

zag, I sent him a request for more info and got this:

Hi,

The price is $17350 with shipping included.
This trailer has absolutely no mechanical problems, the exterior has no scratches, rust or dents and the interior is like new, no accidents. All power and optional equipments are working perfectly.
The trailer is with me in Helena,MT at the shipping company warehouse, inspected and ready to be delivered to its buyer with all the documents, this company will help me with the shipping and payment process.
I am letting it go with shipping and handling included. Because I work a lot and I don't have free time, I am not able to close the deal myself and I want to use a professional third party company to handle the sale. This way we are both protected.
Let me know if you're interested and if you have questions.


Chad

Here are the trailer details:


2009 19' Flying Cloud (Bambi)
Stripped and polished
Custom interior

Chad

I sent another email asking for the actual address of where it is located so that I could have a professional inspector come take a look at the trailer. Waiting to receive any response back, not holding my breath at this point.

Interesting. I looked a a streetside picture of this address. A Suburban in the drive with a trailer hitch.

Craigslist has a good page on Scams:

Some scam Ad's look legit at first, but the more you talk to the person, the more you will be able to tell if legit or not. They will give some kind of sob stories and say they are in another province/state but the item is near your location. They will also request that you send them money and the item will be yours. (Ha! Red Flag.) Another red flag is a 'too good to be true' price for what looks to be perfect items be it a vehicle, trailer, or house.

Sadly, its too common out there, on kijiji, craiglist, etc. etc... I pray no one here gets caught in this.

I have seen variations on this theme before. Sirens and flashing red lights.

Well, on the first ad:
"2014 Airstream Sport 22' Virginia $14,900"
Ad Reference ID: 305253035a7d6fa
... it seems to have been removed from the Classifieds. Probably the diligent Airforums Moderators.

On the 2nd ad:
2009 Airstream Flying Cloud 23' Wisconsin $20,000
Ad Reference ID: 1375252fb7476049
... it is still posted, however Clar7135 has noted that although the Seller is listed in Wisconsin, that the picture of the trailer's plates show California - that seems odd, no?
