I advertised wheels and tires on craigslist. First email came over and I answered through my phone. So it didn\'t flag. I received another tonight, below is the email.
It brought up a red flag when I saw two different types of emails and then did a search for the name.

I posted on Craigslist an ad for an air compressor and received a response from Henry Edward. His response email seemed a little off, stating,
"Payment will be sent using PayPal and i will handle the PayPal surcharge as well. I will arrange with someone to have this picked up for your location once i have paid as i am out of town at the moment...i hope you have a paypal account. If you have one already, just send me the address to send it to, which is the email address you use for it or you can send me a paypal money request, so once i receive the details i will go ahead with the payment through PayPal and then i will contact my shipping company after you get the payment.
I will need your home address for the merchandise to be Picked Up by the Shipping Company."
I did a google search of both his emails and found this site and stopped all communication with the said "Henry Edward."
