To the seller's credit, at least there was a picture!!!
Half the sellers don't trouble themselves, even for stuff that cost hundreds of dollars or more.

That is about as funny as the ignorant Bruce Johnson always mentioning and using his radial arms saw which in reality was a miter saw, on his TV WoodWorking show

He had to have been corrected by many people but still he persists.

Yeah and why I called him ignorant. He has apparently ignored that possible fact and my e-mail bringing that to his attention.

Craigslist is notorious for this sort of thing. It makes you wonder if the people involved really want to sell anything. A lot of time, the names are not only wrong, but misspelled as well. And any way that they can screw it up, they will.
Common craigslist gaffes I have noticed include;
1. False or moronic addresses in real estate ads. Often three streets are given. Needless to say, mapping programs require two streets. And they list all kinds of things that the mapping program can't use. I have looked up commercial address many times that show whole continents because the address was nonsense.
2. Wrong name. Like the "band saw" above. If these folks would just do a Google search with the name they are using, they would find out quickly that is not what is being advertised. If you can't identify the item, how are you going to sell it? All kinds of red flags here. Were the items stolen? Do they have any idea of the value of the item? Can a deal be worked out with some one who is profoundly ignorant? Etc., etc.
3. Atrocious spelling. I have seen million dollar deals being presented by folks who can't spell simple words like warehouse or equity. Do you want to do a big deal with a functional illiterate? These folks have obviously never heard of spell check.
4. Blind links. Go here to confirm ... And there is nothing there. Again, who wants to do biz with some one like this?
5. Profound ignorance. Misnaming things in one thing. But to imply that you have product knowledge and clearly demonstrate that you don't screams NOT HONEST!! Who wants to do biz with those kinds of folks?
6. Wild pricing. I can't remember all the times I have seen absolute junk or old, rusty crap being offered for up to TWICE the price of new. I guess their profound stupidity is trying to reach out finds folks of similar intelligence.
7. Tiny pictures. Or sideways pictures. If you are going to use a photo, use something that will be helpful. Putting up something useless just gets people upset. Again, how do you sell something by pissing people off?
There are probably a few more things I can't think of at the moment. I like craigslist. I have made some good deals on craigslist. But I feel like I am tip toeing through a mine field. You have to be careful. Not only are their crooks out there, there are masses of morons. One is just as scary as the other.
