    Other than his e-mail link doesn't open up when you bring it up on the curser, why is it a scam, TOO good to be true?, Have you tried to contact the seller? Hmm........

    Yeah, I think it's the "too good to be true" part. $2850 for TWO GPR's?

    First red flag is the deal of a lifetime price second is they only give an email address no phone number. 99.9% it's a scam.

    If you contact them he will feed you some line about he "had to leave overseas" and the watercraft are already at the shipper ready to be shipped. All you have to do is wire him the money. I hope people are not falling for this scam. I am getting sick of seeing this crap on Craigslist already. It's everywhere. Flag it!

    I found a few of these when I was looking for my ski!! There is also a ad on there right now for 2 2008 gpr's for 6500 !! When contacted they said they are crated up in las vegas ready to be shipped for free! They will want you to pay through some phony ebay page claiming that is safe that way !!! Itold them I was coming to las vegas with cash in hand, but there is never a way to look at these skis !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE CROOKS !!!!!!!!!

    I want to add something else, even if you can make phone contact with them don't trust it. About 7 years ago my buddy got taken for $2 grand when he put the money down on a car he never saw. After speaking to the "seller" on the phone. The bottom line is NEVER pay a red cent for anything without seeing it in person.

    Amen to that,unfortuately, quite a few people buy that way on EBAY, but there is a buyer protection, at least the idem does exist somewhat .Craigslist, well thats another matter...

    I have found the best way to check on a Craigslist deal is.......cut and paste the ad into Google....if it comes up in several cities all over the country I stay away....
