Scamming on Craigslist
So I wanted to get rid of some stuff I've had that's taking up too much space and decided to Craigslist it. Ebay is too much of a hassle for really big stuff. So I list my stuff and get this back:
"Hello there , i saw your Advert on CL and i want to ask if the above item listed is
still avaliable for sale???"
So I reply "Yah, sure."
Then I get this back (until this point I thought this was a real person):
Thanks for your response, i will like to tell you that
i will like to tell you that i will be buying it, and i will like to tell you that i will be paying with a cashier check in us dollars and as for the shippment my shipper will come for the pick up at your location upon your confirmation of receiving the payment and i dont want you to look for any other buyer.i would have love to come down for the pick up.but am not chance to do that now but am satisfy with your
discription of the item i will like you to give me the following so that your payment can be send.................

2..your full contact address to send the payment to
3..your zip code
4.your mobile nad land nunmber to reach you.i will
expect your mail.asap.
Looking forward to read from you.
So I wrote back this:
"Hi Charles: Thanks for the email. I guess you didn't see the part of the ad where I mentioned I was selling it on craigslist so that I wouldn't have to go through the hassle of delivery? Or the other part where I said "If you're going to pay with a Cashier's check, I"m not accepting them. However I'll be glad to follow you over to *your* bank and we can just do everything in cash there. Or if They create the cashier's check, then I'll accept it but I'll need someone at the bank to create it in front of me before I'll accept it."
Can I get a scammer with a Spellchecker at least? Jeeeezzzzusss
