Wanted to buy my 6 piece bedroom set ASAP using paypal. No phone number or info about where he is located. He said he will send his movers. I sensed a problem and told him I would not deal with remote buyers or paypal. I found a listing here for this same name just yesterday with the same paypal scheme. Thanks for posting it and keeping my life more peaceful.

I got the same emails asking to buy the furniture via PayPal. I have him my paypal email, but not anything else. He knows my name and my town. Are we at risk? What is his purpose?
Are we going to get robbed?

exact same method he/she used as previously described by others about this scammer. I put a high price item for sale on Craigslist & he/she wanted to buy it remotely sending his/her movers & paying by paypal, after I give my paypal account details. No thanks, but no. Very fishy!

Craig's List Furniture sale
He first contacted me through Craig's List asking if there were any blemishes. The next communique (below) was this very pushy bit about his mover coming and PayPal, and asking for my address. I didn't give it. I thought this was pretty hokey, so was glad to see this name listed here.

Through a Craig\'s List for sale ad. Person seemed pushy about getting my address, and insisted on using PayPal. It just didn\'t feel right.
