You guys are the experts on these. Can someone contact this guy and tell him what he's selling.

LOL I guess it could be some kind of scam but I just emailed him. Sure would like a Vespa Gt3000 though. Laughing emoticon

I wondered if the "I don't need any help selling" was in response to people here. His listing looks right (if overpriced) in that he says he's selling an MP3 250. Did it say something else before...?

It said GT3000.

So dodgy right from the start.

As he seems to know fuck-all about what he's selling, an enquiry on the VIN might show it as stolen perhaps?

There's a few "groups" that are trying to garner ads on "their" site for vehicle that don't sell-possibly referring to that?

I think he is probably referring to what we call here in the UK, 'Canvassers'.

Occasionally sellers are contacted by canvassers trying to encourage them to advertise elsewhere. There are ways to avoid them.

Canvassers have been known to contact scooter sellers in order to persuade them to pay to advertise elsewhere.

Typically, canvassers will:
Call or email scooter sellers with the promise of dozens of buyers looking for a scooter matching the one advertised
Offer a refund on the advertising fee if the scooter doesn't sell - these rarely materialise
Contact sellers repeatedly
Be difficult to contact to lodge complaints

Taken and slightly adapted from the periodical 'Auto Trader'.

Hey, at least the seller was cordial, that may be a first for a craigslist transaction!

Price is dropping quickly, $4500 yesterday, $3900 today. Sounds like it needs to be a quick sale. Showing up with $3100 cash in hand may just take this scoot home. Or maybe I just negotiate too hard. Either way.
