98 Prostar for sale: 5k Seems fishy

Hey guys,

Came across this classified ad that seems a bit fishy. Would like you guy's opinion. I own a 98 Prostar and know this price is crazy but would be a great parts boat.

https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/bod/5689069427.html

You can also see other listings for the same boat here:
https://austin.craigslist.org/search...raft%20prostar

I texted them and was able to get more photos:

Money scam up front and no delivery, if indeed it is a hoax. Otherwise it appears to have been a coastal salt boat at some point in time and just looking to unload on an unsuspecting person.

I'd be leery of clicking on the photobucket link. There are dozens of those Craigslist ads here in NY as well.

He posted it in Columbia, Charlotte....... Click on the ad and check prohibited and it will disappear. I do it every time I see it.
