Craigslist "buyer" attempts to have me send him money before he pays for the item.
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Steven Noel
Email Address:
   stevenoel10@gmail.com
Steven Noel offered to buy an item for $1600 on Craigslist, but claimed he would send an agent to pick it up after he paid me via paypal. Subsequent email asked me to send him $1000 via Western Union (to pay his agent) before he would send me the $1600. At that point I stopped corresponding with the scammer. I subsequently received emails from

ownlogo@gmail.com
pick-up_agent@consultant.com

purporting to act as Steven Noel\'s agents, and further requesting the $1000.
