Agree. I saw that D90 listed on Autotrader with the original pictures, same house in the background. Definitely fishy......

Here is the Autotrader ad, it is for sale in New York at a dealer.

Definitely a scam, because that truck is currently for sale in NY for $39k. The real seller buys local trucks telling the owner he's always wanted one, then posts it up for sale the same day. I know, because he did it with that black D90 that was for sale behind my apt a few months ago.

Too lazy to save the pictures to his computer. Has to take a photo (therefore the reflection of the flash). Phone number assigned to Oklahoma via AT&T wireless

Based on this group alone, I'm confident this will self select out of existence through flagging craigslist before midnight

I guess I am just shocked that anyone would fall for this and send a deposit or whatever, which I assume is the scam?...
