Typical PayPal scam. The guy is working \"offshore\" and can\'t come see the \"item\" for sale but is willin to pay extra money so that his courier service can pick it up.

I have a question though, if I don\'t give him any real info, am I in any danger if getting hacked if I keep responding to his emails? I\'ve told him that I too am on a boat! Lol, \"I\'m on a boat!\" and that I\'m also working as a missionary in Africa, and that I hope our schedules allow us to have tea and crumpets.

He\'s still responding!! Lol. Just hope he\'s not currently hacking into my email...

This is his email to me for your database:

Thank for the prompt response to my inquiry? Am very interested in
buying your item and i will like to buy this item now reason is that i
want to buy it for my company and So i want to be the best offer by
adding $100 to your money then keep other offers off  and provide me
your paypal email so that i can make the payment asap for the item and
if you don\'t have paypal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to
www.paypal.com and get it set up , after you have set it up i will
only need the e-mail address you use for  registration with paypal so
as to put the money through.I have a pick up agent that will come and
pick the item up after i have made the payment.

Thanks

I received an email from diolinjoe@gmail.com regarding an item I had for sale on craislist. When I replied to it I noticed that the email went to a boone paul. Thinking that was suspicious i checked online and found that it's a spam account. I add this additional infomration so people know that the scam is using different email adress names to start the dialogue, though the followup mail was from boone paul with the googel email adress.
