Good bike/Good deal? 05 Spec S-Works Epic Disc for $550

I found this bike on Craigslist for sale.

It is used but the pictures indicate it is in good condition. Whats your immediate reaction to this?

Also, it says it is a size M. I am a road-biker up to this point, so I don't know if that would fit me... I am a 58 in road bikes. About 6 feet tall + 140 pounds.

Thanks!

Is that not a cyclocross bike? I can't really tell just from looking at it.

It's definately not a CX bike and I think either the seller is scamming, it's stolen or there's a 0 missing from the end of that price. It's a top of the line XC racing MTB.
