    someone on craigslist is selling a $400.00 swimming pool for $40.00, is it legit?

    He said its low cost because the liner is patched up but when I asked for a picture he said he doesn't have one, just an ad picture. Is it legit because I don't usually go on craigslist to shop. Serious answers please.

    Unless you can go in person to inspect it before buying it, it's not going to be legit. If they want you to send money, then it's a scam And there might be so many patches that the liner leaks anyway and cannot be fixed so you are spending $40 on something that will leak all over your lawn He's probably looking for someone to pay $40 to remove it from his lawn because it would cost him more to rent a U-haul then take it to the dump

    • RED FLAG 1 - no picture for you (it might be in such a bad state - but why not send a potential customer a picture?) RED FLAG 2 - 400 down to 40 - NAH i would just ignore the advert and look elsewhere. Even if it is real which i doubt it will be more like a leaky sieve than some pool u can enjoy.

    • It is selling for $40 because it is worth $40 max. Once it is patched, it will never be as good as it was when new. So you are buying something that may last for 1 week or 2 years. That is why Craigslist is so much fun to use. You might be getting the steal of the century or you might be wasting your money. But $40 is cheap enuf for you to take the chance. Or you can offer him $20 and say that you will remove it today if he says yes.

    • It's not legit, if someone were to sell a 400.00 pool for 40 bucks, it might be damaged/problems that happened
