Title: Stihl 880, have you seen this?
Post by: brettl on March 15, 2014, 10:46:39 pm
Most of you are probably aware of the new in box Stihl 880 for $600 scam that's shown up all over the country on ebay and craigslist. It had disappeared here but it's circulating through KS again. It appears they're targeting smaller, lesser known areas on CL, Southwest Kansas in this case. I posted a scam warning right along with it and encourage you to check your general area on CL and do the same. Maybe we can deep one of our fellow cutters from getting ripped off. To see this scam, look up Stihl Magnum under the Southwest KS Craigslist. Thanks for reading this.

Flagging does seem pointless sometimes but I've had a perfectly legit ad, well within the rules, flagged and deleted so it does happen. You can flag it over and over I think since it is totally automated and impersonal. You will NEVER be able to find who flagged you or why your ad was deleted. It's a system that relies solely on numbers of flags. This is all just what I've deduced from being deleted once and talking to people who know computers much better than I do (that's everybody ;D). If any of this is inaccurate please correct me but keep flagging this ad, it can't hurt and might just be your own way of defeating a thief, even in only one area!
