I'm so tempted even though I don't have the $ for it:

Yup. Pics made me excited and I failed to see the fine print at the bottom:

"Engine:3.0L L6 FI DOHC 24V
Transmission:5 Spd Automatic
Mileage:79,683
Drivetrain:All Wheel Drive
Exterior Color:Black "

??????????? Stay away.

That too, but its possible that could have been a cut and paste mistake.. What bothers me is: the email is part of the car image file, and the car is too good to be true.. hrmm. Any time somebody puts an email in a craigslist ad, its fishy. Real sellers either list a phone number or use the standard anonymous craigslist email forwarding.

It IS a scam. That's Robb's car, it's not for sale. That thing gets SOOOO many scam posting on craigslist with those same photos...

I think there's a whole thread about it on crxcommunity..

I've been browsing for used cars lately and like a quarter of the ads are fake. Most have the email in the jpg thing going on, and a super low price. I'd assumed from the volume it was bots compiling email lists to sell to spammers, but maybe its more evil than that..
