Tennessee craigslist scam please flag

1955 Airstream Bubble Vintage

my pics, my trailer, my words. cant figure out the agenda of this scammer but they are using my trailer as bait. i would imagine they are collecting emails and advise against emailing them (even though i'd love to give my 2 cents) with the mail they have provided.

thank you to all who alerted me to this
john

I saw that ad on many different CL cities. Flagstaff and San Francisco are two I remember. They must have lifted the pictures from the ebay ad, or is that a fraud as well?

What they are doing, most likely, is trying to get people to send them money via Western Union. I recently saw a trailer listed with essentially identical listings in 4 or 5 Craigslist markets when I was looking at one of the multi-market Craigslist search engines. It was priced WAY too low (on the order of 80% less than I'd expect it to be priced) and in each market it was listed as being in that market. Same set of pictures, same listing text.

Scam

I have never posted anything on Craig's List.

Yet I keep on getting notices, that my post is scheduled to be removed.

WOWEE.

Filthy scammers. Since jm2 provided all the direct links, I worked through the list and flagged every one of them as prohibited under the listing T&Cs. Some came up as already flagged for removal. Every one listed almost the same email address, a few had an email address that differed by 1 digit.

Never pay a penny on a craigslist sale unless you've touched the thing you're buying. And even then don't forget the smell tests... title docs, believable prices, etc.

Thank you!

If it helps one uninformed future A/S owner from getting hurt it was worth the effort.

thank you for flagging everyone. i cant believe someone took the time to do all those cities. PLEASE DONT FLAG MY REAL POSTING ON SF BAY CL.
this makes me sick. i cant help but to take this personally for this is not the first time someone has used my pictures for scams. last year someone listed one of my trailers on ebay with a 3 day auction requiring a wire transfer. i think they thought the could get the money before anyone noticed.
anyone know how to contact craigslist to eliminate this scammer?

special thanks to JM2 for making the list. looks like we got most cities flagged some remaining and new one popping up.

Funny... on the Outer Banks one, the scammerScum got confused and posted pics of a 4-wheeler ATV instead of greenrig's Bubble. I guess that's one of their other cons.
