I responded to this Craigslist ad for a $1200/mo 2 bedroom apartment in Chelsea (which has since been flagged for removal), only to get a response like this back from Ms. Mary Fernandez:

Hello,

You should also know that the house cost more than what am offering but i need someone to take the place since  we, the present occupants have moved out of state for a short stay.
