Too good to be true?

Found this post on Craigslist. This guy is selling a '03 SVT Cobra for only $4200. Is there something wrong with this picture or is this really too good to be true?

Could have also been a fake ad. My friend was looking at a civic and we called the dude and he said he's been getting a bunch of calls for this car he isnt even selling

It could have been someone else. Anyone can take pictures from google and make up info its not that hard. You cant always trust craigslist there are some shady on there.

Re: Too good to be true?

I got lucky. The guy said he needed to get rid of it because he's gonna be in Afghanistan for the next 12 months and he didn't want it to be sitting in his garage (good choice for selling it) for the entire time. It's got about 97,500 miles and he's selling that for $4200 because he has to get rid of it by early next month. I reeeeeally got lucky LOL.

This is from craigslist, and i'll tell u exactly what the guy told me (I'll type it in a different color other than black):

How to recognize a vehicle scam attempt on CL:
Shipping a vehicle to you is suggested by seller
He claimed that the DAS from the military base he was at will take care of the shipping fees
eBay Motors or another intermediary is specified by seller
]he mentioned the transaction will go through the ebay buy protection program which i'm pretty sure is fake too
Price is unusually low (fraction of blue book value)
the guy was selling it for $4200, the TMV given for '03 SVT cobra is at least $13,500
Offers to ship a vehicle are virtually 100% fraudulent
yep...
eBay has no involvment in craigslist for sale ads, and any eBay or similar emails or web pages you receive are fake
i can't believe i forgot this entire warning page
Do not buy vehicles sight-unseen, regardless of low price. The vehicle does not exist, and any money you send will be lost.
should have remembered this too, he claimed the car was in pennyslvania, at a military base
Stories about divorcees or departing servicemen needing to sell quickly at a low price are generally fraudulent
i'll say it once more, yep...

i guess i learned my lesson on having to re read things twice before settling in on anything

Re: Too good to be true?

A kid in my class got lucky, he came in bragging that he was buying it and was in contact with the seller until I let him know that it was a scam
