It was probably stolen, it was worth 2 to 3 times the price he was asking and he had a bunch of garbage letters in the posting as we'll.

I have seen this one in seven different states, the exact same ad.

1999 John Deere 4100 4x4 Tractor - $2100


Also included is a trailer ball bar for the 3 point hitch.

Could have just been a mistake. There was a JD 790 with FEL on Kijiji for $2700. Really low hours. I replied right away, because I don't care if scammers get that e-mail address and he listed a local phone number. I told him he should check the price because he was way too low. I figured if it wasn't a scam somebody might not know what they had. I hate to see people get ripped off, even if they do it to themselves.

Guy wrote me back and explained it was a typo...the $2700 was for a truck he was selling. His son got the prices mixed up when he posted the ads. Apparently in the 13 minutes or so the ad was up, he had 4 offers to buy it sight unseen.

The ad came down, then went back up with a $19,500 price.

Actually, I saw a few much better ads yesterday. They were fishing using a JD 655 or 755 tractor with a loader, with 1,500 hours, for around $2,500. No extra letters or anything strange in the title. They were just missing a location.

So it's likely a scammer looking for emails to sell or someone hoping that someone will pay online then screw them out of the money.

I see these types of ads for trucks on CL all the time.
