Doing a reverse number search with Intellius yields this info --

(916) 370-1617

CellularFolsom, CA

Folsom is famous for its prison, and inmates have been known to refer to their cell numbers as "suites". Anybody remember Colonel Winthrop from the early microcomputer days? He ran a scam, was sent to prison, and worked the same scam twice from there! I've forgotten his suite number, though.

Back to the topic at hand -- When I Google
916 370 1617 site:craigslist.org
I get 16 hits, and reading those seem to indicate he's a small dealer named Mike, who also delivers trailers in the Sacramento area.

I don't know if he really has a Fiber Stream and is casting wide trying to get some interest, or he's fishing for prospects.

If you put together a chart of dates and prices, things don't add up right. For instance, on March 11 he lists the price in Reno as $3,950, in Sacramento as $4,000, and in San Francisco as $4,125.

Maybe he's OK, but he has some serious 'splaining to do.

2003 13' Scamp Travel Trailer in very good condition, used very little. Has refrigerator, stove, sink and furnace. Front couch makes into two bunks and table lies into a bed.

Hello All:

While on my way home from NJ with the New to me Burro, I am in Buffalo
and came across this 2006 Casita in Grand Island (Just a few miles up I-90)
from Buffalo.
OK, it says only $4999, and Original Owner, which appears to be a Great Deal, or?

If so, here is the contact info:

http://buffalo.craigslist.org/rvs/1695345171.html

Just thought I would pass it along.

Will have pics up of the Burro later.
Now, getting across the border, lol!

Cheers, Jake

As with any thing. I would suggest buyer beware when buying from a source that your not sure of.

Wow, Looks like he has one in every state in the USA, from WA down to FL and everywhere in between.
Or, it could be that he has one trailer and just wanted to make sure every market could see it, but it would have been nice if he provided the REAL location of the trailer.
Thanks for flagging!

Original trailer was sold on Ebay.
I wish I could notify craigslist about this scammer.

I have notified craigslist on scammers, but it would be a mega amount of work to log onto each individual craigslist city and report as a possible scam.

I can't believe this guy managed to duck under the extensive craigslist radar, and get so many posts, in so many cities. I guess changing the language (and price) so often, helped him.

If you go to the craigslook website that Kevin mentioned you can see them all and then just click on the "Flag this post" link on each entry. I did that but I think they need a few people to do it. I also flagged the multiple entries on the multiple 17 ft twin Scamps that showed up on several pages.

"Hi there , I'm interested in purchasing your Trailer at the said price but, i can only pay using pay pal, and after payments has been made, i will arrange for pick up myself . kindly get back to me soonest. Dora"

I received the above message from "Dora" re a trailer I have for sale. Does this sound like a scam offer and if so how would it work??
