It's fun searching for trash talking ads/replies on craigslist. Searching for RE in titles often yields a treasure trove of funny as hell responses/replies to ads. Same with searching for scammer, flake, shithead, douchebag, etc. (don't forget to also search for plurals of those words, as IIRC craigslist search isn't coded to return ads containing for example scammers if you search for just scammer).

Just found this one via search for "douche" and had to share...favorite line:

"if this helps one person not be ripped off and takes away one chimichanga burrito from these thieves I will be satisfied."


"Scamber" alert!!! (is that a variant of an Amber alert, to notify people about scammers? :lol:). Love the narcotics keywords too, and in the health and beauty section. Is that where the "street pharmacists" post their ads on craigslist?

Warning naughty/prejudiced language ahead (check out all the shaq-fu's hahaha)...

I'm trying to upload pictures but upload is taking longer than usual. All systems are in perfect working condition, with only minor scratches on outer shell of the consoles. Going up on ebay soon, don't miss these deals. Prices are pretty firm, WAY bellow ebay prices. Please respond with phone number to get a prompt response with pictures


I love how people will threaten to put stuff on ebay, almost like you're missing out on such a great deal :rofl:

Holy crap! This guy has Modern Warfare 4 already! That's not out until after Black Ops 2!
(Obviously he meant COD 4 Modern Warfare, but I dunno. Given he wants 40 dollars for an old game makes me think he meant the future game!)

I like the concept, but I think it'd look better if the owl had some lines to make it match the 8bit style.

Edit: like how the tail part is.

Purple see through Gameboy with a Pokemon yellow and red . Goes for over 500 on eBay. I only want 125.


Game boy colors are worth $500 - should I sell the 5 or 6 I have sitting around or let them appreciate a bit more?

160 GB Playstation 3 with Games - $400

For sale is a 160 GB Playstation 3. It is not the slim version. Wireless controller is included as well as the following games:

* Grand Theft Auto IV
* Grand Theft Auto IV- Episodes Of Liberty City (Lost & Damned, and Ballad of Gay Tony)
* Family Feud-(downloaded onto hard drive)
* Tecmo Super Bowl Throwback- (downloaded onto hard drive)

This is a slightly used PS3. I recently bought it, but due to financial hardships, I'm forced to sell it.

Recently bought a fat PS3. A non-backwards compatible fat PS3. Good luck buddy.

lol, the games aren't even semi-new, and two of them are downloaded. People must not understand how quickly games depreciate in value, especially really popular games like that - I see this shit all the time on my craigslist

Reply to:
Hey come get these now Unused 3 of them 100 value. (909)
I need the money now so the sooner the better. Best offer

Location: Rialto


So basically, 2000 Wii Points are worth 20 at retail so, 3 cards would be worth $60 not $100 worth. LOL Craigslist math is the best.
