I saw that on CL yesterday.   I thought the same thing.   Fun contact info too.   low hours, nice tractor, low price seams strange.  Maybe typeo on price?    Did you try to contact the person?

If you add a 0 to the price ($22,000) would that bring it back to normal?  I'm not up on the price of these things but I know they are HIGH.

Almost 100% certain that when it looks like someone cut/paste a ransom note from magazines, that it's a sCaM.

 

It was posted like that on kijiji in Ottawa (google search) - but has been removed.

Just send him your credit card number and ss number and he will hold it for you, The owner lives in Pakistan but his brother Apu lives someware in North America.

He is selling it for a friend of his that dosent have a computer,so just send him a money order and he will set up a time for you to pick it up. 

 

It's a shame that there are people that try to scam --But this one is funny because it's so ridiculous.

Yep! sounds familiar. They shop those ads around all over North America trying to find a sucker.

Those types of adds show up locally on a regular basis.

I suspect that they are harvesting email addresses and phone numbers.

The last one had a 2006 half ton pickup Mint Condition for $1,987. The picture had Palm Trees in the background along with an ocean... I'm reasonably sure that we have neither in Wisconsin.....

If you right click the picture, search google this image.  It shows more adds for the same tractor with the same picture in TX,IL,PA,NY and others.  $2650, 18,000.00, 4410 and others. Its a scam for sure 100% sure
