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.
