I wouldn't put the percentages nearly that high.

And I try to read between the lines and try to see what is not being shown in the pictures.

Seriously though, I have traded a few vehicles on Craigslist. It really sucks to get your hopes up about a possible deal, only to have your heart sink when you pull up to their house and see the real life POS in their driveway.
I recently looked at a few work vans advertised on Craigslist. They all looked pretty straight in the pictures, and had good descriptions. They were all ragged out junk in person.

I believe that any "good deal" on Craigslist is gone within a day. Stuff that has been on there a while or posted up a few times is most definitely junk.

I am glad to see that you can still make TERRIBLE attempts at humor. Considering.....you have been trying to get in Embers pants for like a week.

This seems to be pretty true in my dealings on craigs list also. Either junk or way over priced.

There's scammers everywhere. You can't trust anyone anymore in my opinion. There's even some on this site. But unfortunately you have to take chances sometimes or you might miss out on something.
