Where is Joe with his 2400 word rant about CL adverts?


I'm fed up with CL for a few reasons:

1. You post something for sale, very detailed photos and description. First ------- to email you asks 4 questions which were outlined in the first sentence of the ad, had they actually read it.

2. You find something for sale with an ad three words long, so naturally you've got a couple questions. Emailing the seller with, "Is this still available? I have a couple questions; Can I come look at it now? Any damage? Does it still work? Do you have the manual?" They reply, "Yes."

3. You post an ad expressly stating that you're interested in cash only, absolutely no trades. First ------- to email asks if you'd trade for his piece of trash xbox.

4. You post a very detailed ad FULL Of pictures and the only replies you get are the pieces of ---- trying to scam / spam you. How does this happen? You'll get an email from a legit sounding address, "ken.park44@gmail.com" that reads: "Is your item still for sale?" and even has a signature, "sent from my piece of siht cryphone" Once you reply, 2 seconds after sending your email their reply comes back:

"I really appreciate your response to my email. I want you to consider
it sold, Pls do withdraw the advert from CL to avoid
disturbance,anyway I don't have time to come over to take a look
because of my Business but you don't need to bother yourself with the
shipment, I'll take care of that by engaging the services of a
shipper, hence I'll be sending a Certified check and it will be
delivered to you via United Parcel Service (UPS), so I'll need you to
provide me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of
the check.

Full name on the check.
Full Physical address to post the check
City, State and Zip Code
Home & Cell Phone to contact you.

Note that the payment will be shipped to your address via UPS NEXT DAY
AIR SERVICE and I will like you to know that you will not be
responsible for shipping i will have my shipper to come over as soon
as you have cashed the check*

N.B UPS does not deliver to a P.O box addresses.Thanks"


That sends me into a psychopathic rage and I want to kill something living. That's obviously a scam, but how the ---- does it even work? Do they come to your house and rob/murder you? They send me a "check" via UPS, and when I cash it, they send someone over to pickup the item? I'm confused...

If I had $2200 laying around I'd buy this. Strip ALL of the aftermarket parts and sell, then sell the car in stock form for $2200.00.. Btw, What is a "soney head unit?" I particularly liked the "johnson racing" equipment. Really?? Are they mildly retarded, or just illiterate?

BTW, here's how the scam works. The send you a "cashier's check". It's fake. You deposit it into your account, and it shows you have the money in there. You allow "shipper" (probably the guy that sent the check) to take the item.

2-3 days later your bank says check is bogus, and withdraws funds. You have ZERO recourse with bank for this. Sometimes they even charge you the bad check fee, which can be from $10 to $50. Item gone, no money, and possible charges back to you.

This bike is ridiculously fast. Brand new powerbands installed and pops wheelies in every gear. I hit wicked jumps on this thing and dont use an air filter so I can get max air flow to hit the jumps when im 5th gear tapppppeeeddd! I drag race Corvettes and beat them all day long. I took off the front fender because I like to inspect the condition of my front tire while doing boner airs. Front and rear tires are absolutely bald, but thats good for drag racing on the street and chicks love it. Im selling the bike because I'm going to try to make it to the xgames for FMX... I dont think Deegan can match my one-footer (shown below) or bar turns. For free I'll throw in a partially snapped rear fender, my brand new MX boots (Timberland workboots from WalMart), a HJC helmet (with no visor, of course---Metzger style), and sick neon pink and blue MX pants.
If interested call or text me at (484)-624-7034. I dont check email because I always ride so hard all day and practice my rooster-tails.

***WARNING***: This bike is not for beginners, and might even be too fast for Jimmy Stewart or Richard Karmichal.

I haven't been on this thread in a while, but I recently bought a 1972 Indian JC-54 motocross bike for $400 5 minutes from my house...found on Craigslist. It's a gift for my 10 week old son.
Who's the coolest dad? Let my son be the judge.

The frame looks buckled right behind the weird looking table fixture. Also the passenger has a nice flat rectangular rail to smash her/his face into especially since theres no seat belts, at last would ya look at that all the emissions stuff is still on there.
