Fraud???

Okay guys so this person is selling a 97 f-250,crew cab,short bed,4x4 with 134,000 miles on it for $2,900 on cars.com. They claim the truck is in great condition and it looks to be.The only problem is they don't have a phone # on the site and they claim that they will be using ebay's vehicle protection program.The thing is that program only works if the truck is on ebay and its not.All these issues together and the fact that its a great price kinda worries me.What do you think?

Heres the link to the site
1997 Ford F250 H/D, $3,400 - Cars.com

and here are more pictures

I would be very careful. Appears that the lady selling it doesn't know it's worth or there's a deeper story.

^^^^THIS is an automatic SCAM...

trust me buddy if it wasn't they would have NO problem meeting and shoeing the truck before purchase... I always ask to fly down and see it before purchase, even if it is across the country... they never seem to "allow" you to do that... I wonder why lol

If it sounds too good to be true it usually is.
