That offer of $50,000 commission has been spamming craigslist for years! It used to be posted every day. Of course, the asking price of $495,000 is totally absurd. It might be worth $5,000 total, if that. So that 10% commission would be $500.

The Mexican Lobby Cards spammer is back on craigslist again, after having posted thousands of times on there, with no success. http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/crg/2769870514.html Perhaps the person posting it has OCD?
