Yeah, you have to be careful on craigslist or anything online for that matter.  There are similar scams with house rentals.  I have seen numerous scams, but I have also had success at buying and selling.

I wouldn't pay first. I have too physically see the car, maybe test drive it, before I hand over any money. I'm not buying a car over internet from a unfamiliar source.

Oh yeah. The same scam is all over eBay too. It's sickening.

I don't use Craigslist at all.  I have heard that there are alot of scam artists on that site. I am also weary of any ad online asking for the money for an item up front.

I agree entirely... there are too many people out there that take advantage of others.
