New CL scam - YAMAHA M7CL-48ES
« on: April 13, 2011, 07:50:24 pm »

It took me awhile to figure this one out. The price is beyond to good to be true so at a lark I emailed the guy to see if it was a typo.

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/msg/2318426400.html

A couple of days later I received the following response:

"Hello,

I still have the YAMAHA M7CL-48ES + SB168-ES (Mixer + Snake Package) for sale at the price of US$2000.00. I am currently out of state because I work with "Save The Children Foundation" and I am traveling a lot all over the world, where children needs my help. I am now in United Kingdom and I will have to stay here for at least 3 months. If you still want to buy it, we can do it with the help of a very good shipping company -www.parcelforce.com. You will have 5 days inspection period to make sure it is in the condition I told you. I will pay all shipping fees. If you are interested in buying this, just let me know and I will provide all complete details on how this transaction will work.

Thanks
Allen"

Here is a response I got from a Allen B. Smith <smith4allen@gmail.com> regarding some B&W 802 Diamond Speakers he was selling for $1500 (they retail for $12,000):

"Hello,

I notice his craigslist ad (in Austin) was flagged and removed:
