    Two different ads (one in Oklahoma City, one in Memphis)... two different names from the sellers... two different phone numbers... two different prices... but the same ad text... and the same bass... hmmmmmmmm...

    That is called a scam, steer clear.

    Maybe the seller lives somewhere between the two cities and is asking higher in OKC because it’s a longer drive for him to meet up.

    Good point. On the rare occasion I sell through Craigslist I only use their email relay so I’d didn’t catch that.
