99.9% of those too good to be true ads are scams. Would you sell a watercraft worth $10,000 for $2500? I don't think so. Tale tell signs of a scam are:

1) Ridiculously low (too good to be true) price

2) Only email given, never a phone number.

3) Usually some story of being "deployed overseas" or "have to leave the country" so must sell quickly, hence the great price.

4) Offers to ship the ski for free.

5) Asks you to wire money.

NEVER wire money to anyone!

They do this with cars too, usually high end models like BMWs or M-Bs for crazy low prices. Craigslist should really have some kind of system set up or people to watch for these scam ads and remove them quickly.
