When they contact dealership to follow up on real plates they had no clue. Guy stole a porsche from a valet parking lot, sold it at Porsche dealer and couple got fooled.
My favorite Craigslist story involves a C level actress who needed help paying her phone bill.

I Googled his name one time - troubled young man, by the sound of it. He'll stop, and then every six months or so I'll get a flurry of emails. This has been going on for 6 years. Never even met 'im.

To be sure, I've also successfully used Craigslist a few times. It definitely has its merits. You just have to watch out for a few weirdos.
Why don't you block his email address? Or just set a filter that sends it strait to the trash?

Man 1 looks: 6/10. He turned out to be fairly cute, he was an older military man.. well put together and we had a fling. Nice guy, but I cut it short when I realized it wouldn't amount to much more than that; I didn't click with him.

Man 2 looks: 5/10 but he was HORRIBLE. Awkward turtle guy, he had major mental issues that were too apparent. I felt uneasy with that one so I didn't give him a chance to do anything insane. I cut it short in 30 minutes.

Man 3 looks: 8/10. Wow. So damnnnnn sexy, we had wonderful chemistry. I really liked him!.. but his 'package' was literally less than 3" fully on. Other than that, he was seriously great. We talked/met for a couple of months. I just... I... couldn't do it anymore. *shakes head* I never told him why I didn't want to meet up with him any longer.. he was already too upset... he adored me too... I regret the entire situation. We had such an emotional soft spot for each other... *sniffs.

They weren't all so bad; only bad one was guy 2, and he still didn't do much.
