    Craigslist ads

    Has anyone been seeing ads on Craigslist for a pair of relatively new skis for a really really low price? I keep seeing ads like this all the time and can't help but think there is something wrong here.

    I am in Milwaukee and noticed the registration on these hulls is from Florida. All seems very weird to me.

    I would suspect some kind of scam. A lot of ads I see that look too low have an over sized email address like this one. Not sure how the scam actually works.

    How about these ads ?:

    They are a scam. I seen alot of boats listed the same way when I was looking. You will get a long email stating it was "my father's boat and he just passed away".
    They then ask you to send the cash and they will ship them for free. You tell them you are local and are willing to come see the boat and will come with cash, you will never hear from them again

    Paul its a scam not only do peps not talk like this in So Cal but even in places like where Xlint live LOL Look at the ad in the 1st one and this quote from it "If your perception for (2) motion runners, these are it, lots of fun. Both models fuck turnaround and turbo. The two seater turbo has reached speeds of 71 mph., and the terzetto seater at 68. I tally titles to movement runners and housing." Bad translation = Bad deal
