Anyone out there think this CL ad is legit? https://spokane.craigslist.org/mpo/d/spokane-2015-vespa-primavera-150-super/7055822231.html

Especially when the seller calls it a Lambretta, describes the color as white when it clearly is not white and wants just $1,000. That alone is an invitation to trouble.

Considering that the typical listing price for that year and model in Kelley Bluebook is $3,500, I'd guess that is bogus.

Scam. By me they usually list 300cc Vespas for $1000-$1500.

My guess is they will try to get you to send them money which they will keep. I flag every ad I see like this, I don't know if it helps but I figure it can't hurt.

Scam. Do not touch. It’s all over Craigslist in several states.

The same ad is up in every city near me, over in the northeastern US.

Well, it's gone for you, but I just clicked and it's still there.
