    Does it look like a proper picture or a well known picture from the Internet? I'd be suspicious if its a well known picture, is the iPad on someones floor? Might be genuine if it is.

    If you are that worried, may be pick up a refurbished model from an apple store?

    Buying things like this online is always risky and never can be sure that it is 100% legitimate

    I have seen that picture on most websites.

    If your unsure yourself do not bother with it at all although it maybe be a safe seller you never know.

    Contact them for pictures of the iPad they are selling with the screen on and picture of the back to show if it is a 32GB, worth a try.

    I would never do a transaction online from craigslist unless I met with the seller face to face and verified the item being sold.

    If you do meet this person make sure you meet inside a mall, like at a coffee shop, so there are a lot of people around and cameras in the sky. This is how I do it when buying from Craigslist.

    I wouldn't buy anything off the internet for that kind of money. If you can't see it you don't need it. Like the other suggestion get a Apple refurbised iPad. $500.00 is too much to risk on a picture that anyone can publish - especially on Craigs List. Good luck!!

    I ordered a 32gb refurb from the apple store and you'd never know it was a refurb. It came in perfect condition and it has the full warranty. I recommend you go this route instead of c list.
