I googled the phone number and found the scamedex.com site had the same number listed with the same individual utilizing emails. It was verbatum to the text I received the same day I posted furniture for sale on Craigslist.(15 Jul 2013) I am so glad I found this site...He hadn\'t mentioned the overpayment yet....I texted back I take cash only....so far haven\'t heard back...

Regarding a baby crib I posted on craigslist, I received this message: "(1/2)I came across this (Crib and Custom Cowboy Bedding - $190) on craigslist and I will like to know if it is still available for sale. Please more pics of any(2/2)kind will do if you have them.Thanks." I then responded "Yes it is still available. There are 5 pics on the ad. Is there anything in particular you would like to see a photo of?" The next day I received this message: "(1/3)Thanks for getting back with me.I am okay with the price.....I would have loved to come and see it in your house but my schedule will not permit me I'm a (2/3)busy kind of person. We can proceed with payment arrangements and pick up. I will be making the payment with cashiers check or certified check, so I will (3/3)need your full name that will be on the check and your full address where you can easily receive the package via courier and I will arrange for the pickup". I finalized the conversation with "Ok great! We got a deal! Make the check out to Dick Gazinya 4569 Fuckoff Ln. Austin, Tx 78666. Nice doin bizness wit ya!" I assume I will not here back from this a-hole.
