 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Phillip Robertson or Crossland Hutton
Email Address:
   crosslandqig466@gmail.com
Crossland Hutton expressed supposed interest in buying a bed frame I posted for sale on Craigslist. In his second email he suggested that he send payment through PayPal & asked for my PayPal ID along with additional details about the \"item\" including closeup pictures. I started getting a little suspicious so I sent the same pictures I posted with the ad originally and still answered the additional details about it.

The third email was the one that finally clued me in that it was a scam. He claimed that he added additional funds to the PayPal payment to me to cover the cost of sending a Western Union or Money Gram to his pick up agent. He should be able to send that himself. And, according the the post office website, the address given does not exist.
