    Default 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 with only 32k miles on it for $6400

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/car/171771793.html

    I'm not really sure where I should post this but it seems pretty amazing to find an FJ62 with only 32K miles......

    to bad I can't buy it (or at least check it out). What do you guys think? I figured why not ask the experts

    I would just remind folks not to always believe what you read!

    These types of ads are VERY Suspect to me.

    Look at the background of the picture and the Minn. License Plate. Yet this is posted in L.A.

    Sure it could be a pic from this past spring and he bought it from a guy in Minn.

    But there are also crooks out there using Craigslist to scam people out of their money buy posting up a great deal that isn't real (and I'm a poet and don't know it!). You wire the money to some 3rd party and never see the truck or your money again!

    They also use Craigslist to get your email address......for some other purpose.

    Remember to be very careful and ask ALL the right questions......if he has trouble answering or his story keeps changing......RUN!

    If the Deal is for Real............I would buy it!

    Yeah, I agree...

    I'm not in the market right now...but if something's too good to be be true.....then it probably is too good to be true. I'm very weary of making big purchases online.

    It's probably B.S.

    I've been following that Cruiser over on Yotatech since last December, since the real owner first went to look at it. He'd been trying to sell it for $20K, and it was on eBay for awhile.

    Oops scratch the probably. I just got a PM from the real owner -

    Hey Amir-

    Did you sell your Cruiser?

    Saw this listing on craigslist with your old pics....

    Just wondering if it is yours that you sold or a fake ad.

    Thanks -

    - K.C."


    "who is this son of a *****!!!! thanks a lot man for bringing that to my attention. although the ebay auction ended close to 12, the bastard of a high bidder couldnt get a loan for it, so it completely wasted my time. so i might put it up for sale again in a month or so, im really busy for the next month, getting married and all.
    that is definitely not my ad. thanks again, i will contact craigslist asap regarding it.

    -Amir"

    Yup. Complete and total BS. It is a beautiful Cruiser though....

    SWR, as a favor to the real owner, you may want to let him know what you hear (if you hear back) from the person who listed the ad.

    I can give you his contact info or you can PM him at Yotatech.com under "Amir904"

    Good call on the ad likely being bogus -

    I'm sorry .....

    I was wrong!

    That's .......New York License Plates!

    Looks very much like Minn. from a distance.

    No answer back as of yet.

    Wow, there are some good detectives on this site . Glad I didn't waste my time.........

    so what the hell is going on? Some guy copied Amir's pictures and is selling another "look-alike"? Did he think someone wouldn't look at the odometer or something?

    I'm trying to get pics of the plates off Amir's SmugMug site over at Yotatech......but it keeps freezing my page when I click on it. Can anybody else pull up Amir's pics?
