He replied to my craiglist motorcycle for sale ad and asked if the bike was still available. I replied that it was and got the below email.
Thanks for the swift response, just to let you know that am okay with the condition and price of the item, am ready for its purchase am buying this and my form of payment will be by Paypal because i don't have access to my bank account online (i don't have internet banking with it)I'm on Job a petroleum engr and i'm presently on rig., but i have it attached to my PayPal account, and this is why i insisted on using PayPal to pay,all i will need is your PayPal email address to make the payments..and if you don't have a PayPal account yet, you can set one i up at it cant take you less than 3mins to do that...
I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up company to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after payment have been confirmed by paypal,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.
(1) i will like to know the reason why you are selling this.. (2)How much is the final price...
I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible,please do get back to me with your PayPal email so i can make out payment.

I received a text msg in regards to a motorcycle I listed on Craigs-list. The guy stated the same info as listed above in the other complaints. He said he could only use PayPal, he was a petroleum engineer on assignment and could not come and get it in person, blah, blah, blah. I told him I would only accept a cashiers check and would only turn over the bike when my bank tells me his check is good.
Luckily, I googled his phone number while he was texting me and found this web site. His message to me was exactly the same as the other complaints, word for word!

I got a text from a guy interested in buying my car I just listed. The text seemed rehersed so I googled his name and found out he was a scam. Do not get fooled by this guy! I could tell the messages seemed off because the sentences didnt make sense.
The text messages read... (646) 504-4683 Chris 'Hello, How are you doing, My name is Chris Dawson, What's yours, Do you still have the (2004 Infiniti) for sale.'
Me 'I do. I just listed it yesterday.'
