scammers are idiots

I got a chuckle when I saw this ad (obviously a scam) for a 13' Scamp.
https://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/rvs/6118909006.html
How can I tell it's a scam ad? First off, the price: $1542. Scammers love to use unusual, uneven dollar amounts; maybe it helps them track ad responses so they know which of their phony baloney ads is pulling in the most responses. Second, there's the ad copy itself... note the details:
Nice 13'rv for sale, lived in it while we built our house. Has a new air conditioner motor, refrigerator, toilet and hotwater tank. It has an ultralight body and is easy to pull. Comes with a window unit, leather recliner and a Reese adjustable fifth wheel hitch.
The photo shows a 13' Scamp with roof A/C... yet the copy specifies a window unit, leather recliner (where do you fit that into a 13'er?) and fifth wheel hitch (on a bumper-pull trailer!).

There was a post for one here in Raleigh, NC. I actually gave them a call and then I stopped after I figured it was too good to be true.

I think we should all give him a call. Deluge the SOB with phone calls at all hours of the day and night.

Yes, C/L scammers are still on the stupid side. Eventually they will get smarter.

My last check at least half the Airstreams for sale are scams.

Scammers often just post one pic.
