What are these guys doing who put up a 07 Toyota with 70k for 1500 bucks. You call and get the text subscriber is not available

Whats the scam?

They are usually e-mail/text scams which ask for credit card info. If you call with a phone it likely gets the result you are experiencing. The most common forms of communication on Craigslist are e-mail and text.

I saw a truck that looked like that on I95 while returning from Providence Saturday night...as well as a bunch of other mangled vehicles. Terrifying...
