What I've found out is that if the poster puts their contact info (e-mail) in the form of a .jpg, it's usually a BIG red flag.

Interesting reading
Looks like there are several versions of this scam going around and has for some time. I placed a scam alert to CL.
Thanks for all the replies. My search for a cook trailer continues...

The first thing I noticed was that the CL ad is listed under "Tickets - By Dealer"

Second thing, based on your email, is that the photo is definitely NOT in Delaware, or at least any part of Delaware I've ever been to!

just my opinion, but when they don't use the email that craiglist lets you use, (the anonymous one) and they put the email in there add it is typically a scam. Typically, I said, not always.

Before we had our trailer built, I looked at allot of Craigslist adds, there are a ton of fake ones out there.

You would think they would put the price a hair closer to a real price to try and scam people. If you think you can get a $10-$15 thousand dollar trailer for about $3000.00 you have to wonder about it.

There are tons of these scams going around. Once you send your your money, kiss it goodbye! The first thing you will notice is these is no contact phone number on these scams. Second, in their replies, they will ship it to you. In some of these scams, they will tell you that the shipping was already paid by someone else who canceled, so you do not need to pay anything on the shipping. The money is handled through a third party, so there is no way to get your money back. The first question you should ask, as someone said above, tell them you live in the area and ask to look at it in person. If it is real, they will give you information on it. If they will not, RUN!

I emailed this guy back asking specific questions. He replied only with the specifics of how the transfer would take place. I told him I was going to be in Delaware this weekend and wanted to see it. No answer. Luckily, there were enough red flags for me to second guess the ad. The brothers here have more than confirmed it.
Thanks everyone
