Similar to the above posting. "terry" emailed to ask about buying a motorcycle I listed on Craigslist. Email was written in very, very poor English and was highly unspecific to the ad. I Googled the email address and this report was the first result to pop up.
Thanks to the Op for verifying my suspicions.
