    I saw this the other day and the add is still up. Figured someone on here might want it. Not sure how good of a deal it is but I assume it's easily worth that much. Appears to be brand new not much in the description.

    Yeah, look at the paint, looks real mottled like it was just fizz canned. Some one else posted that pic not too long ago, Joe.

    I got that same ad here in Hawaii as well. Emailed seller and was given some sad story how he/she was traveling out of country WITH THE SAW and if I sent money they would ship saw. I knew right away it was a scam. Who travels out of country with their saw?

    Add has been all over Nevada and Idaho, might have even seen it in California. Remember if it sounds too good to be true it probably is and a great deal like that would only be posted for about 30 seconds and it would be gone if it were real especially with the folks around here.

    I saw that up here in the Vermont Craigslist, as others have said, it's a scam.

    I saw this on CL and actually pursued it somewhat by communicating with the supposed seller a couple times, did some research on the company on the internet and also looked them up on the Better Business Bureau site which they claim they have an A+ rating with. I also did some research on their domain registration. None of it leads anywhere. They are "invisible" ie, non-existent.


    The saw is new as is the Husqvarna version they have listed on their website.

    I am 100% sure that no one will ever receive one of these saws after sending in their $600.

    Another clue is the type of payment they require. I wonder how many suckers they reel in per week?

    I just saw the same ad as well and new it was a scam some how, I was hoping it was going to be a rough one I could afford at 600, but the picture looks just like the one I see on ebay.
