tried doing a reverse look up of the number from a few different sites and they all say invalid number.............? could be a mistake when they put their number in but i doubt it very much.......... i'd stay clear myself :wink:

Multi-Locational it seems.

Selling an Odyssey in Chi-Town and a VW in New York. Does it smell? To me it does.

WL, always Google the number in the ad or better yet use BING, check the search results- you may find something like a complaint or the same ad being listed in different cities. You should always do a search first on the seller using all info in ad.

The 877 area code is another toll free number like 800 numbers.
Hmmmmm....

it would be kinda nice if there was a box you could check, that would flag a add as a possable scamm. and then it would be sent to Rj for a review. and then the person that posted it would be suppened, if it was found to be a scamm add, But i know that would be a lot of work for someone to set there and go thru every add that got flagged, but just a thought,

Default Report the ad

If you report the ad inappropriate at the bottom of the ad we do investigate each one. In this case we can clearly see the scam activity and were able to disable the account. Just wish these guys would stop opening accounts up over and over. Good catch on this scam. Please report any activity that doesn't seem right at the bottom of the ad posting. Thanks - PJ
