$155 is rediculously cheap... And i have never used Western Union or Money Gram so i am not sure about those. I responded asking if we would use paypal. And considering they are asking a quantity, i dont know, a dealer wouldn't be selling them this cheap.

Do NOT pay via Western Union or moneygram. Sure sign of a scam.

Basically they don't help out when the item is never sent?

It's untraceable and you have no recourse if the item isn't sent which it probably won't be.

Read the disclaimer in red right at the bottom of the ad.

Sometimes, things really ARE too good to be true. Pretty sure I would steer clear personally.

Never wire money through craigslist. If it seems too good to be true.... it is. When in doubt just walk away.

Just go out and get a new hero 3 silver edition. It's what I did and I sure don't regret it. At first I had tons of problems, it wouldn't stay recording and would shut off randomly. I did the software update that they suggest you to to and its 100% and better than ever. It's worth the money. Gopros are so versatile its great.

Just to add to the common wisdom never buy anything on line that can't be purchased with a credit card or PayPal. Thanks for the heads-up on this apparent scam.
