An ad is posted on the local Chicago craigslist for a 2006 Explorer (top of the line, V8 AWD, DVD/Navi, etc.) for $3600. It is obviously a mistake or a scam, but I send the guy an email just for giggles... I get an automated reply within 10 seconds of hitting the 'send' button:
Keep in mind, I am near Chicago. So I respond that I have a friend in Bismarck who would be happy to go and look at the vehicle. Of course there is no response and the ad quickly disappears from Craigslist (whether removed by the poster himself or by Craigslist admin). It sucks that they bring our troops into this.
Hello , I am selling this vehicle because I am in the military and my unit will be sent back to Iraq. I don't want it get old in my garage. Also, the car is too big for my wife so there's no use on keeping it. The price is low because I need to sell it before may 20th. The vehicle is in pristine condition, no accident history, clear title, no dents or dings and no scratches. Always adult driven and garaged, never abused or raced. If you are interested, it's still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is $3600. The vehicle is in Bismarck ND and in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back. Thank you ! Here are some specs: VIN# 1fmeu75866ub15118 Mileage : 37,765 miles Transmission : Automatic Engine : 8 Cylinder 4.6 Liter Fuel type : Gasoline Exterior color : Black Interior color : Tan
