Responded to Craigslist for-sale Ad, also on Ebay. Sent me text message saying would send money to my PayPal account....Then it "didn't work". Thought it was legit, since he is paying me...
THEN: got nearly identical message from another "buyer"...Must not have realized he already hit me up.::Text of message:
""I got your mail. Well, I have read through your ad and from what I
have seen,it is priced favorably compared to others so I want you to
consider it sold to me because I am ready to buy it for the asking
price.I am Tech Sgt John Samuel currently on duty serving the
country.Presently I am out of town on duty in a remote area until
January 27, 2015. We have a bad and fluctuating network here otherwise
I would have called you and seal the deal on phone. At the moment,
email and text messages works best for me.Nevertheless,I am ready to
seal the deal right away and pay you via my PayPal account that is
attached to my bank account as it is the only secure form of payment
that I have access to right now. So,kindly get back to me with your
FULLNAME,PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS,PHONE NUMBER AND THE PICKUP ADDRESS.
so that I can initiate the payment immediately.If you don't have a
paypal account, it is absolutely free to set one up, kindly visit
www.paypal.com.A shipper will be hired that will come for the pick up
upon the completion of the payment aspect of the transaction.Let me
have the requested details to proceed with the payment if we have a
deal. TY Sincerely,"
