Hi,

I appreciate your interest regarding my 2005 Yamaha GC1 Conservatory Baby Grand Piano with Mark III Disklavier. The instrument is 5ft3” US model with a high black gloss finish in mint condition and includes a matching bench, with all the bells and whistles, it has no humidity exposure, the instrument has been gently played. The piano belonged to my father who passed away last year and want to sell it because I live in town and I don\'t need it, don\'t have enough room. The total price is $2,200(firm price) and includes delivery to your address.
Let me know if you want to buy it and i will send you more details.

Thanks,
Barbara


THEN...THE NEXT EMAIL, VERY SIMILAR TO ONES POSTED HERE BEFORE....

Hi again,

I\'m a flight attendant at American Airlines and because I\'m away most of the time I will not be able to deal in person. Before leaving I had pre-arranged the deal with Google Wallet so my presence is not necessary. The piano is in their possession ready to be delivered. Google Wallet will handle this transaction for me. The total amount that you will pay is $2,200 with shipping and transfer fees included .You will receive the piano in max 3 days and you will have the chance to inspect it for 5 days. Google department will hold and insure your money throughout the inspection. If by any reason you find something you don\'t like about it you can send it back at my expense and Google Wallet will send you a full refund. I\'m sure it won\'t be the case because the instrument is in excellent condition. It will come with all the necessary paperwork ( bill of sale, user\'s manual etc). You will receive all the original documents.

If you are interested to buy the piano, please send me your full name, shipping address and phone number so I can register the transaction with Google Wallet .Google will reply you with more details and information about this transaction.

Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!

This appears to be a craigslist scam that is posted in several cities. Be aware. Too good to be true. Glad I found Scamdex first.
