Craigslist is a cesspool

So I respond to a posting for a 944 Turbo in Vancouver on Craigslist for $3500 (yes, that should be obvious it's a scam) and here is the response I get:

I'm Nicoleta,let me know if you're still interested my car is 1988 Porsche 944,never been involved in a accident, no damage, no scratch, no rust and i can say that this car is in perfect condition and you will love this car if you will decide to move forward.The price is not negotiable $3500 firm,I sell at this price because I just finished the divorce with my husband. When the divorce has finished I own this car. Now as a women I don't need.
I've got photos of the car hosted on Internet at the following link:

If you go to that link (shortcuts are "broken") but look at the pictures in the link.

Then look what I just ran across on ebay:

I find that SELLING stuff on there is usually worse than BUYING...I'm pretty good at spotting scams and have so far been good (though I only buy on CL in person)...but when I used to list stuff to sell, the first handful of messages were all scammers
