I’m betting it’s a scam or someone trying to pull a prank on someone else.

Also, does it have a motor? Hard for me to tell on my phone. Lol

Then tell him you live out of State but would like to send a deposit
If he replies yes then it's a scam.

Guess it's possible he got a zillion offers higher than the listing so he woke up and is now trying to figure out what to do LOL

Either way no one is getting that for $2,500

Sounds like he's waiting for the best deal as time is on his side. If not probably a scam!

Ask him what his top offer is so far.

It screams scam to me. No someone is that disconnected to the value of a power wagon in todays day and age. And even if they were, clearly they have internet and can google the value. That's 10-15k sitting there.

Or at the very least, he knows what he has, and wants a bidding war. Like the housing market the last 2 years.

I just sent a message asking if he could take a deposit because I’m out of town for two weeks.

I am in Temple… could leave work right now and be in Waco in an hour or so. If it was legit I’d be on my way.

Doesn’t seem too interested in taking my “deposit”.

Who knows… might actually be legit.

Listed a $20,000+ truck for $2,500. Yep at least a zillion offers.


May be just left that last zero off by mistake.

You’re right.

I told him I would bring cash and so far he has turned me down. I’m not 100% convinced it’s a scam, but we all know people are trying to buy it and so far it’s still available. He’s willing to take a cash app deposit though if you’re interested. I got that info straight from him.



It may be legit and he’s just as skeptical of buyers as some of us are of him.




Good luck. I hope one of y’all get it. I’m out.

Cashapp Deposit is a scam. No way I'd send that over. Maybe put it on credit card and hope you have enough sway with your CC Company to have them side with you when you dispute. Even then, everything about this screams scam.

I was looking to see if he would jump on that cash app deposit offer when he wasn’t really giving others the time of day. Would have been an indication that it was a scam.



He just sent me a text saying it’s sold. A scammer wouldn’t have texted me hours later letting me know it was gone.

Y’all probably could have got a smoking deal.

Fair assessment, and I agree. Anything fishy that comes with cashapp is automatically a nope from me, regardless of how good the deal is. Thats one hell of a truck for anything less than 10k lol.

Hopefully someone here got it.
