Handy VW camper

Not mine. Just had to post this as being well worth the money for the use one would get out of it. Not an Isuzu, but may be of interest to someone here. Saw on The Dallas CL

That price has got to be a mis-type. There is no way someone is selling a rust free, running, Subaru converted Westy for $1,500.

Craigslist scam. They do it all the time, all kinds of different stuff. Usually a gmail account, but lately a lot of "text me at". BOTTOM LINE: if it seems too good to be true, it isn't. Dennis

I should have known it was a scam. It's my old trust issue I guess. The city of Tyler in Texas where it was listed hasn't been hit yet with the coast creepers that move in with there large pocketbooks and drive up real estate prices and mistrust . Just a bunch of Texans that trust on a handshake. Guess that went down the drain. There moving in here (DFW Area) and it's typical there bidding up homes sometimes up to 30 to 50 thousand over asking price and they have ruined this area already.

The scammers often place their ads form other areas. Often, the phone (when it is a "text me" deal) is a different area code from where you read the ad. Dennis
