    Thoughts on this FS ad in craigslist?

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/spo/1810512255.html

    PWC noob, here. Not in a great rush but looking to pick up a pair of skis. This seems like a good value and thought I would see what others thought.

    Thanks, in advance.

    couldn't hurt to send an email, however, you know what they say, if it seems too good to be true...

    That the irritating thing about Craigslist.

    Too many scammers out there. There are ads with even more provocative savings. I'll see if they can get me some high def pictures and details on the trailer.

    Thanks!

    Usually the hull numbers in the photos don't match the state of the seller. #1 give away. Then obviously, never buy skis without seeing them in person. lol

    BEWARE, When I was looking for 2 ski's I found many listings like this on craigslist that were too good to be true !!! They were all scams !!!! The guy always said that they were crated up ready to be shipped and that his buddy worked at the dock !! He also tried to get you to pay for them through ebay saying that it was safe that way but the ebay link he gave to pay through was also phony !! I spoke with the people at ebay and they said craigslist scammers use phony ebay links all the time then get your money and then GOODBYE !! Just like it has already been said if it sounds too good to be true than most of the time it is !!!!

    Well, I figure nothing ventured nothing gained. Sent an email. The absence of a phone number is also suspicious. Requested high def pictures, info on the trailer and their availability to show the skis.

    We'll see .......

    I posted before seeing your post. You are absolutely right!

    That is a great suggestion, googling all or a portion of the ad. That is going to make it much easier to weed out the scammers from the real sellers.
