$3k, 2001 Sportsmobile Ford E-250

Maybe a hokey site, but it's claiming $2700, and "I'm interested" button triggers an email...

Something is really wrong here...

That is an old ad as it was bought several months to a year ago by a forum member and driven cross country to Los Angeles. He then sold it on ebay to another forum member and then we converted it to 4X4 and he still has it.

I think there are crooks who use old ads to create fake new adds with rediculous pricing

It really ticks me off how they lift other people's pics for scam ads. I know it's an easy thing to do, but it ticks me off nonetheless.

There was a nice 2006 EB50 posted on my local CL yesterday, where seeing any SMB is really rare. It was $2750. Flagged it.

Re: $3k, 2001 Sportsmobile Ford E-250

Another scammer is carpet-bombing Craigslist nationwide with another SMB, under a variety of headings, with a ridiculous price of $2750 as well...it's been at the top of search results for the last four or five days.

You'd think when someone is scamming this obviously (and with such a highly-recognizable, much-repeated ad) that they'd be easy to apprehend, especially considering there's a phone number to text in al of the ad variations, and seems like the same number each time.

Make certain you flag these as spam as you see them. Craigslist is very hands off when it comes to spam, but systematical aware and responsive when it comes to users flagging bad posts.
