Scam Casita on Craigslist

Of course a nice 2009 Casita for $2900 was too good to be true but I called anyway. No answer but I left a message. I am pretty sure I have seen one of the photos they posted in the ad previously somewhere else on the web. Maybe on Casita’s own website. Dadgum scammers should at least try and get their facts straight. The ad stated “awning” but none is shown in the pictures. Newbie, or just plain lazy/stupid, scammer I guess.

Scams like this for Scamps or Casitas are continually on our craigslist, and apparently all over the country!

That same 2009 Casita was also on SoCal Craigslist last week. Be sure to mark "Prohibited" to get it flagged and, hopefully, taken down.

If you do a craigslist search you will usually find the same ad in several parts of the country. Many times they use an odd price, like $2904. I believe they use pictures from a previous legit ad or manufacturer's literature.

Responding and leaving messages to these types of ads gives an unknown some of your personal information. This opens the door for telemarketers and other scammers.

A fellow teardrop friend of mine went up to Idaho this weekend to get a ‘84 U-Haul that she spotted on Craigslist. She hadn’t seen the trailer in person, only pictures thru email. One thing though, she’s well aware of all the scams that are on craigslist.
