Heh, well I just posted a car up on Craigslist and within 24 hours got someone asking if the car was still available. I responded that, yes, it was, and almost immediately got this response: This certainly sounds like a scam; I specify that my car's odometer is not working and offer either a discount or to get it fixed before the sale, the buyer doesn't even mention it. They don't ask to look at the car and want to mail a check. I'm assuming this is a scam (can anyone confirm?). My question is, where does the scam come in? Is the point to steal the car and get the bank to pull the money back or something? I'm trying to see where they'd get money. Also, why do scammers write like such idiots all the time?
