    Note the palm trees in the bacground...I've never seen a palm tree outdoors in MA in my life.

    $4400? If thats real I'll go there today! Thats a nice truck in those photos.

    I sent an e-mail anyways...its fun to paly with scammers on the internet.

    Yeah, I see those regularly here too, and not too many palm trees in Ontario (at least this part). Last few times it's been removed as spam before I even had a chance to play with them.

    Craig's list is now telling users that there are a number of vehicle spams in process on their network. Two things in particular set apart spams from authentic deals: Too good to be true/divorce/need the money this week sort of scenarios AND promise of delivery. The two almost always go hand in hand, and I too have seen a few like this.

    Buyer Beware! Go or send someone to see the truck in person. Be wise!

    I saw it too. It would be nice to actually find a deal like that!

    We have something similar here in Canada called Kijiji. Lots of scams on there too. I"ve been looking for a used Tractor and see deals like 2006 Kubota's with front end loader, backhoe, and bush hog for $5000. Yeah, right!
