this "Stephen" is also using a 561-331-0264 text today to reply to a Craiglist ad in Orange County. I have an old car for sale. Said to contact at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for the heads up. If you Google his email address he is doing this and saying is a Marine Biologist out on a assignment - needs to PayPal.

This guys sent a text asking that we contact him via the above email address. Then emailed the below email to us.
Hi there, Thank you for getting back to me.Can you assure me that it is in good state and that i will not be disappointed with it.I\'m ready to pay your asking price and to be honest, but the issue is I\'m a marine biologist and i do have a contract to go for which starts tomorrow and am leaving any moment from now.The contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. But I\'m able to access email anytime as we will make use of laptop so my only quickest payment option is PayPal as i can send money via PayPal anytime.Since I\'m requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the pay pal fee/charges on this transaction and if you don\'t have an account with paypal,its pretty easy, safe and secured to open one. Just log on to www.paypal.com. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? I have a pick up agent that will come for it once payment clears and they will be handling it for me. So i look forward to hear from you. Your PayPal e-Mail Address : Full name: Firm Price: Many Thanks
