Is this Fraud??

I came across this ad for a 3 yr old friesian mare, trained and beautiful movements, gorgoues conformation, everything!

ONLY $500!!!
here is the link::
BuySell Classifieds : British Columbia : BEAUTIFUL LOOKING MARE WITH a long flowing mane, great conformation, impressive movement with a high stepping trot and she is a very people friendly horse, good with farrier, grooming, leading etc. She is 3 ye

Does anyone think this is fraud or what?
Kinda seems like it to mee.. most friesians are over $6000, and some not even trained... also, its only three, how is it completely trained

Seems kinda too perfect to me...

What do you think?

Could be but won't know till you contact the owners and go from there, it's possible they fell on hard times and need to make a fast sale for one reason or another.. she's a beautiful horse that's for sure I don't think I could let her go for that

Thats crazy. I emailed asking about her price. I guess we'll see.

Big thing in the UK at the moment is horses being advertised ' cheap ' or just pay the shipping fee and we can agree on a price after you have had the horse for a couple of weeks.

After you have parted with your money you will never hear from them again and a horse will never be delivered . Not saying that this is the case here but the old saying of - you get what you pay for - still applies.

I would never put any money on a horse without seeing it. I trust nobody! I don't understand how someone would. It makes no sense. It happens alot with puppies too. Free, just pay the shipping and he'll be at your door in a few days.

There is no shortage of stupid people out there
Another saying is A fool and their money are easily parted

Perhaps they are missing an extra 0 from the advert?

Well - I got my Level 4 trained Dutch Warmblood mare for $500.
Admittedly she's been in a pasture for 2 years.
But... I'd never seen a DW for less than $8000 so I didn't believe it either.

Beware of buyers wanting to send you a cashiers check and then arranging for shipping. I've sold horses and a couple of saddles on web sites. I've been contacted several times by someone with very poor language skills wanting to send a bogus cashiers check too. Then they want to ship the horse to Spain or something bazaar like that.
