Shoulda known it was to good to be true, but where does one draw the line on "smoking deal" or "no fucking way"?
That's where the hotmail account comes in handy.


As somebody who's been looking for a van on CL and elsewhere for a year or so, I can tell you look for weird language in the ad. I found an "almost too good" ad last month but something in it was worded oddly. I grabbed that sentence and googled it and hmm, what do you know, the same van was advertised in three different cities and I don't mean adjacent cities.

SF, San Antonio and somewhere in Ontario...

But stupid good deals do happen so I just keep a spam email address and just use it for this kind of stuff.
