    I feel sorry for the poor sucker who shows up to collect his new "iPad 3" only to be mugged for $1600...

    If anybody is greedy and stupid enough to fall for this one they deserve to get ripped. I bet CL pulls this one quickly.

    It might be an ad built on the known rumors and they're planning on picking up two on the 7th.

    A local police officer should send the guy an email asking to buy it, and then show up in plain clothes.

    be prepared to get slammed with junk email when you send the seller an email.

    Last year there were people who would post ads on craigslist saying that the iPad will be available on launch day. What they did is presell it to the person and then camped out and got it for them. Essentially you were paying someone else to camp out for you to make sure you got an iPad.

    then the guy who obviously doesn't have an iPad 3 doesn't turn up and what has that achieved?

    Even if the guy actually has an iPad 3, anyone who pays $1600 for it is being mugged, figuratively speaking :p

    This happened with the iPad 2, the poster is going to scalp a couple. Usually get 3-4 people to buy 2. Cause people to pay crazy prices on craigslist. The same thing happened with the PS3 had so much hype.

    It would also put 1600 in his pocket too.
