That one is a very common scam. Always 1983 Scamp, price always $2000 or less, always has a picture with a phone number embedded in the picture, usually has random symbols in the title. It pops up all over the nation several times a day.

Be very, very careful! This shows a picture of a 16' Scamp!


Yet the ad says is a 13'

OH Goodie....Where do I send my money too????

OH My..

What a smoking deal.....just to let everyone know...I have "dibs" on this one..

Nobody better try and take it from me ...it's MINE....

Now if I can only figure out how to wire money to Nicaragua...and then wait for the driver to bring it to me...

And for the bonus...I might even be able to get the seller to send me a check for $4,000 and deposit it and send him back only $2,000...

OMG...I am soooo excited ...this is such a deal ...

This and/or similar are posted on dozens and dozens of CL regions daily.

For some reason, the price is always embedded into the photo and the "cushions are new and never been slept on". The latter point seems to be really big deal. LOL

Fiberglass-rv-4sale.com also has a Scam alert up on it - they include several versions of the ad and photos.

It's interesting that Scamp has an automatic transmission according the ad.

Has anyone called on one of these (with their eyes wide open, of course) to find out how these scams work? Where does the payoff come from for the scammers? How convincing is the "spiel"?

Just curious as to how sophisticated they are.

I noticed that about the Automatic Transmission the first time I looked at the ad. Now THAT is an extensive Mod. Any photos?

Taking deposits to "hold" the unit, most likely. Deposts taken on mythical trailers.
