    If it's too good to be true on Craigslist or eBay; it is. Don't even bother. Run away.

    Ask to meet in a VERY PUBLIC place like a crowded Starbucks and check it out. If it does have a foreign keyboard, can you live with it?

    Inspect it 100% and realize it may be stolen.

    Getting out of stolen property charges is easy.....reading klingon, that's hard.

    Either it's a scam, or it's stolen.

    Either way.. bad idea.

    Classic scam. Shoot an email an you'll get a response advertising a web site or asking to ship and pay with paypal.

    lol yep its a scam

    Hi,

    The MacBook Air is still available, but I'm currently in London, United Kingdom. Because of the financial crisis, I lost my job in United States and I had to move at my sister in London ( here I found a good job ) .
    I don't need the laptop anymore so I tried to sell the laptop locally, but with no luck. I was offered silly money for the laptop because of issues like - it is a US version or the warranty doesn't work here or that it has a US keyboard format. That's why I'm trying my luck in the US.
    I hope you are still interested. The laptop was bought brand new from Apple a 6 months ago. I have attached some pics with it to this email.
    About the laptop I can say it is 6 months old and it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent. Included in the $350 price is everything the laptop came with when it was new, including the original manuals and warranty papers. The warranty is fully transferable to the new owner.
    The laptop is here with me in UK.
    I tried to be as thorough as I could with the presentation so you can have all the info if you decide to go ahead and buy it.
    Please get back to me and let me know if you like the laptop if you're really interested in buying it.


    I emailed em back and said i was in london also and asked if we can meet up so i can take a look......

    someone is selling a macbook air on my local craiglist page for 350. Doesn't give the size, but it looks like its one of the newer models. 320m card, 2 gigs ram.

    Anyway, if it isn't a real ad and I'm not getting a new computer for 350 bucks, I really I hope that its the same scammer that posted in your area.

    but seriously. I hope this isn't a scam. haha

    If it's less than $800 it's always a scam.
