    Greetings!

    I tend to roam the Inspire Pilots forum, but came across this ad just now and decided to register:

    *BRAND NEW * DJI MAVIC QUADCOPTER DRONE

    ...bitcoin? No box but everything else likely to be in someone's backpack? If you know anyone that recently had theirs stolen, this might be worth looking into.

    Not likely. If this was a stolen item it would not include the charger and other extras. Sounds like buyers remorse :)

    Bitcoin and everything that would be in a backpack struck me as odd. The icing on the "odd cake" is that they're only asking 900 while everyone else with a Mavic in hand is asking HUNDREDS more than that around here. Could very well be nothing. Worth a shot.

    Hmm, looks awfully similar to one located up here in Oregon.

    I corresponded with 'him', 'he' replied (a copy and paste from his email):
    I have it but Im back in Reno for the holiday. I can ship it if your comfortable. Otherwise it will have to wait until I get back this weekend assuming I haven't sold it by then

    Why would 'he' ship it from Reno to back here in Oregon, when he was going to be here "this weekend"?

    SCAM!

    All I find/get is the auto anonymous Craigslist email, when 'he' replied he utilized the same anonymous email

    Likely the same person then. That address is just a proxy address and, for all intents and purposes, has to point to only one person.

    Interesting...

    Super sketch...

    *BRAND NEW * DJI MAVIC QUADCOPTER DRONE - $850
    [​IMG]
    condition: new
    make / manufacturer: Djj
    model name / number: Mavic

    Selling brand new DJI Mavic drone / quadcopter . Item is opened but still in perfect working condition and comes with all accessories pictured. Asking $850

    Picture is from a german blogger. I saw the same ad in Tampa, Oregon, Texas (somewhere). They replied by craiglist email saying they were out of town for the holidays and they could send it to me if I pay them with google wallet. Told them I would wait for them to get back.. They replied that they were also trying to sell it in the Bay Area (California) and they had some offers. At that price, it would have been sold in a heart beat. They have gone as far as texting me, YES i have their phone number and goes by the name of ***.

    If they contact me this weekend and want to meet i will do 10 shots of Jager and jump for joy.
