Are these in the LA/OC area? I have seen ads too. I suspect that maybe someone is backdooring them. I wouldn't touch it if it didn't have a legitimate receipt.

Yes its the la/oc area , I'm in anaheim ca so I'm so damn tempted

Craigslist is generally the last list a scammer will mess with as you can meet the seller face to face. Meet the seller, discuss the terms, look at the merchandise and make a decision. I can list the times I have used a warranty on one hand. You can also insure a camera purchase with a homeowners policy using a rider if homeowners will not cover the cost of expensive equipment. There also may be a warranty available if you shop around.

All these nervous nellies with there doom and gloom warnings are rather funny. Sure there are some scams out there so beware. But Craigslist is hardly a great spot for scams. If you are serious about a purchase check out the listing. I am actually surprised that the folks here are so skiddish about craigslist which has a rock solid reputation. Just do not use Craigslist for remote transactions.
