Ads

Post by Tarnished » Thu Sep 28, 2017 5:25 am

Pursuing ads on Craigslist, RV mags etc frequently the same ad is published from different locations. Currently looking at an ad for a 25 footer that appears in both eastern MD and western VA. There is another appearing in 6 different western and mid western states. Are these ads legit? Are they scams?

Usually, if they show up in various places, its a scam.

I regularly see a 34XB that shows up all over the country.

Sometimes, there are legitimate ads that are placed in at least a couple of adjoining community's CL listings. You certainly have to be careful. Some are really easy to spot, some not.

Yes as I suspected these ads are 345 miles apart in different states.
Now, if anyone knows of a 25 or 26 footer for sale, I'm a legitimate buyer.
