    Also in Philadelphia -- 100% scam. As you probably learned, it's a good idea to search a chunk of text from these "hot deals" on CL because almost all of them are listed all around the country to phish for e-mail addresses to sell. Between frauds, dealers posting as "owners" and people with no clue to the used value of gear, good deals on CL are getting extremely rare.

    Strange thing though - on all three of those ads the map points to the same place in lower Manhattan. Maybe it is a real guy just trying to expand his reach.

    That would likely be the actual item that the scammers have copied text from for their CL postings.
