Verizon Galaxy Nexus goes up for sale on Craigslist for $1,000, quickly taken down

Someone in Phoenix was selling a Verizon Galaxy Nexus today at the high price of $1,000. The ad for the unreleased phone appeared on Craigslist.com but was quickly flagged for removal and taken down. Not sure if anyone bought the phone, but with a rumored release date of December 8, I think it would have been a terrible way to waste $1,000. After all, in just a few days, the phone will be available for $199/$299 with a 2-year contract, and for under $700 if bought outright.

Are you that thirsty for a Galaxy Nexus to spend $1,000 on a used one?
