Oh shoot! I should have waited; I bought the $7000 Airstream 19 when I really wanted a Scamp
16 with automatic transmission....
All kidding aside there was listing for an 2005 Airstream 19 for $7000 on craigslist a few weeks ago. I knew it was a scam but decided to play along
for a while -
First thing they ask is to move to a private email account to continue discussions. I got the spiel in-the-service-been-redeployed-must-sell-will-ship-to-you and that response was quite convincing. I expressed some skepticism and received another well-written response assuring me that all was well. That AS, too, had automatic transmission (its'a trailer) and ebay would handle the transaction (on craigslist listing). Again I balked and the next few emails were written by someone who clearly did not have english as their native language. I played along for a few more messages and then lost interest. I continue to shut down scam listings when I spot them.
