I understand the present condition as started in the advert and i\'m okay with the asking price, i will not be able to come to look at it due to the long distant and the easiest way for me to make the payment is through Google Checkout checkout.google.com and I\'ll take care of the pickup and delivery when the payment has been made by my mover, provide me your name, address, city, state, zip code for the mover to calculate the cost of the shipment and your google checkout email account for me to make the payment.

I got a similar scam: The mover have calculate the cost of the pickup and delivery, i will transfer a sum of $1,750 to your google checkout account, you are to deduct your $1,200 and send the remaining $550 to the mover for the pickup and delivery, i know this is non of your business, but due to the movers policy that the shipment fee has to be sent by you, to show that you have permitted them to come for the pickup at your side. Please withdraw the advert from Craigs to avoid interruption and let me know when you want me to make the payment. And when I researched her 'moving company' deliveryman.com, it was nothing more than a portal website collecting ad fees.
