May be a miss print. i've seen weird prices listed before. it's more believable for them to have missed a zero.

Scam!
I replied to a couple of them.
They have stories like, I am selling it for my sister that is sick, her husband died and they live in a different city .....

Plus, how often have you seen a direct email address in an ad?

Fuzzy pic, low price, and email ad on pic is a scam to get your email to spam you.

Re:Good deal or scam? 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Almost surely scam. they're hoping you copy their email into your own email and send.

I haven't quite figured out what they do with your email once they have it, but I've run across it several times.

Often when I'm selling a vehicle or large $ item they will shoot me a text that always somehow looks auto generated and not personal. They say you need to email pictures or other information to them at a particular email address. Interestingly, if you tell them to just call you, they disappear and never get back.

There are "deals" like this every day on Phoenix C/L. Usually Harleys. I flag every one I find.

It is always possible that the last 0 in price was left off.

I'm sure they were contacted and still did not fix price. SCAM
