I was browsing craigslist just now and found this:
http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/msg/1531225848.html


Which, happens to be photos and partial description ganked directly from one of MusicGuyMic's auctions that I was looking at earlier today:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Brand-New-G-String-T-8-Tenor-Ukulele-8-string-Uke_W0QQitemZ250566413205QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Def aultDomain_0?hash=item3a56ec0b95#ht_2269wt_1165

There isn't a "this is a scammer" flag; if it were to be flagged, which category do you think should be used? Prohibited? Spam?

I'd go for prohibited - in fact, I just did...

I like how Craigslist says


Avoid scams and fraud by dealing locally!

How about avoiding scams and fraud by dealing with a reputable seller in Hawaii instead of Mr. Mystery in your area?
