Quoted from BadMonkeyDJ:
I have been looking for an old, non working cab for a while now and I found a guy on Craig's List that was moving and was giving one away in Lexington, Ky (I live just north of Columbus, Ohio). I sent him an email and got no response for a week. Then he responds and tell me he has already move to Utah. He put me in contact with his his movers who offered to deliver the machine to my house for $400. Neither the seller or movers could type a correct sentence. Is this a common scam? I'm more of an arcade machine guy but I wanted to try my hand at pinball.
Yes, this scam is becoming common now... I ran into this with a guy from CL selling from an NC location, and then received an email a few days later claiming he's moved to Colorado and I'd have to cover moving expenses, blah, blah, blah.
