Thanks for the replys! The reason I asked wasn't for me but an older gentlemen that I know. He was sold a bill of goods in return for nothing. They took him for $350 to sell his rig, promising advertising in papers and magazines none of which happened. Unfortunately, he already did it and now they don't answer the phone or return calls. This kind of stuff makes me sick!!

I sold my old boat on Craigslist this spring, I had tons of people trying to scam me but sold it eventually. Biggest thing I learned was if anyone wants to send you money without even looking at, it's a scam. I did have the "company" call me a few times asking to sell it for a fee, didn't call them back.

That is common if you put your phone number in the ad. Especially if you put it in plain text where it can easily be picked up by a program. I only use an email account that I have dedicated for just craigslist stuff. You can tell a little more from the email if its legit or not. Look at who sent it, how its typed up, etc.
