Apparently it was driven by a sweet lil ole lady, only on Sunday, from New Hampshire to Nova Scotia. She is now going into a nursing home and must sell.

I smell a rat! :wallbanging:

Yeah,I emailed the guy ,and asked him if he had a picture of his tractor,because that one was owned by a guy in New Hampshire. Of course I don't really expect to get reply ,but we'll see.

Big red flag for me would be that he didn't list its model #. I feel that would be an important selling point so the prospective buyer would know what he is looking at. From my limited knowledge on the Iseki built Bolens, it looks like a G154. My dad has a G154 [I think] and its a two cylinder.

I've seen those scams for years on Kijiji. The pricing is usually about 1/2 of the usual value. It is a scam to get you to send money for shipping (at the least) and you never see any tractor. I remember replying to one for a JD 2210 back in 2008. Once I found out the tractor wasn't local I lost interest and knew that it was a scam. The guy gave me a sob story about being a soldier who had to go back to the middle east for another tour and wanted to shift the tractor before he left. I considered that pretty low. Needless to say I was not interested. They pop up from time to time. Caveat Emptor!!!

The ad appears to have been pulled. It is gone,I can't find it anywhere.
And of course as expected ,I never heard back from the dude.
He may have gotten a little nervous.

I reported it with info of the owner being from New Hampshire, and some other facts that were pointed out. I figure lots of people reported that one. Scammers are SCUM!
