Craigslist Ad

    The mistake the seller did is, (s)he cut pasted the description from the original.

    A google search of the description shows the item price is $188.

    Some ignorant buyer is going to happily buy it for $500 after some tough negotiation :(

    Yes. Very dishonest. It's a shame the level of dishonesty we have today.

    Buyer beware, with just about anything on craigslist.

    In my neck of the woods, a guy placed an ad on craigslist to sell a ring, but the "buyers" showed up at his house to rob and kill him. So...seller beware, too!

    the primary complaint at overstock seems to be assembly. so maybe if it's already assembled, the price will be worth it to someone.
