CRAIG'S LIST SCAM. I have items for sale on Craig's list and he was trying to get me to open a Paypal account. Supposedly, he's off-shore but wants my outdoor plants and furniture for his company. Most likely he's part of the Nigerian scam group. His usage of English is off and he kept referring to my post as "item" when in-fact, we had listed several items for sale. Here is his email below.
