Default 2001 Miata LS $2300 (West Virginia craigslist)

Clean!!! 2001 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS

Price seems too good to be true, but doesn't have the typical scammer format and contact info. Not my car, no affiliation.

Good luck, if it's real that's a steal. Less than I paid for my NA.

That's a scam. Trust me, I'm a craigslist champion.

No location, no text in the body. You must be new to the CL game.

Nah, it's cool. It's actually his brother's car (who is in Iraq) and he's just selling it for him. He said a bank transfer would be easiest, so I gave him my checking account number. He's going to buy my old Miata too, but he's going to pay with a Western Union check for more than my car is worth, and then I just have to cash it and I can keep the rest. Besides, he's the deposed prince of Nigeria, so I know I'm working with good people.

Seems legit to me.

I like that he mentions no electrical problems. Always check Miatas for electrical issues, everyone knows they are rampant....those damn Lucas electrical bits.

Ask the sergeant where he is stationed.
