Got scammed on Craigs List. Notified me by text messaging. His text starts out as the following:
I want you to know I am OK with the price and the condition. I want you to know I will not be able to show up for the pick-up. But if you are ready to do business with me, I will arrange a shipping company (Mediterrean
Shipping Co. Sarah Piper Thomaston, Ga.) that will pick it up for me at your pick up location after I send to you the money. So kindly get back to me with pick up address and zip code for now. I will pay you with pay pal account and you will have cash before they come and pick it up. My full name with pay pal is Desmond Clark. He uses a fake pay pal sight which looks totally legitimate. This fake pay pal sight loves to e-mail you.
Desmond wants you to pay the shipper first before you can pick up furniture. Says the money is already in your pay pal account so go and send the money gram to the above.
