Posted a very large lot of remote control cars & accessories on KSL, a local classified ads section, for $400 and was contacted by a Henry Thomas, wanting me to hold the lot for him for an additional $40. I should have known that it was too good to be true, once we got to talking he wanted me to cut a check to some shipping company for $500 and he would reimburse me, to pick up his item. After 2 days of emails back and forth I told the guy the deal was off and to drop dead.

I presume we seal this a deal? pick up and mover\'s fee will be included in your payment, upon cash of check, you\'ll make the pick up money payable to my movers as soon as you cash the funds and my movers would arrange appropriate time for pick up at your location as i have other properties to be moved and i want you to consider the item sold and keep off other interested buyers. I believe this is based on trust and i will like you to respond back as soon as possible so i can proceed with the payment. Best Regards, Henry Thomas
