This stuff I can't figure out. :confused:

The guy lists a 2008 Saab 9-3 convertible on Craigslist for say $4,900 with low miles, "mint" and has pics posted. The car is in say .. Albany NY.

A week later, the same car with the same pic is listed in Pennington NJ. A home is pictured that quite fits the town. The rest of the pics are the same from the week before. Big foot in a sandal with hairy leg in an interior shot .. :rolleyes:

A week later .. same car .. Ocean City NJ, same hairy leg and sandal. Main shot is driveway with beach in background and the rest have the hairy foot.

You e-mail/craig-mail the guy and never get a response. You know the price is wrong but never address this in your communication. There is never a come-back and you have a few friends try.

Saw one like this with a Turbo X and then this vert .... but what is in it for them? I was waiting for a hustle ... like send $50 to hold the car ... or some odd brokerage account hustle. But nothing? Why bother??

With the old "Want Ad Press" ... guy with a Dino .. phone him and (old Italian w pizza sounds in background) .. hey, I change-a-my-mind, I race her and now want to keep her" ... two weeks later, same Dino. There was always a car you just missed or something like the Dino. I just figured you gotta' sell papers at $1.25 and the shills spice it up.

Yeah, they're out there just gathering email addresses for whatever reason.
I get replies from CL postings that are senseless (interested- XQGL) just so that I'll give them my email address when I reply.

Yeah, but when the house is real (my area and the topo features match), and then the beach house is real ... but they get nothing. No follow up and there has been no activity on any fronts like hack stuff? They never tried but I never give accurate information over the phone. There just does not seem to be anything in it for them?

Yet? I may be sorry ... but I've noted Craigs is pretty weird when I tried to list a canoe for the second time, it wouldn't allow it so I figure that it had something to do with that?
