Even if the classifieds were for members only, I'm afraid it would not prevent the possible scammer from registering on the board and contacting someone. If someone notifies a moderator that this has happened, they can ban the user or delete the registration, but there is no way to know what someone might be going to do when they fill out a valid registration.
Yes, it does look like this was a scam, I see the same message posted on another board. I am glad you were quick to recognize it.
