Sometimes price alone gives it away. The price will be way too good to be true in order to make you pull the payment trigger "before someone else gets it".

I saw a CL ad a few weeks ago that was for a female Albino Pied ball python for $50... which is a morph that goes for $800-$1000 normally.

if you're not dead set on pickup you can find one for a better price. You have to go to advanced search and search the user.

Honestly, if it is a local pickup the chances of it being a scam are relatively slim, since you can see what you are considering buying. This user also has a (non-herp related) online presence that looks legit -- Google her name.
