I did so, then he wrote back with a sad story about how his agent needed $1,000 to come pick up the vehicle and I would need to wire him (via Western Union) the money and he would pay me an additional $1,000 once I had done so.
Poor English tipped me off and I searched his e-mail address on the internet and came up with a number of scam hits.

I listed a car for sale on Craigslist and I got an e-mail asking if it was still for sale. I replied that it was, and this was the e-mail I received from the guy (he had never even seen the car):
"Sorry for the late response...I am ok with the asking price.due to the nature of my job and location,i will not be able to come for inspection because i work long hours everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.i will be paying you via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal).
I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made.You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply.If you don't have a paypal account, you can easily set up one.log on to http://www.paypal.com/ and sign up. its very easy.
Send the paypal money request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to hear from you soon..

Even gave me a linkedIn page for me to check his profile. When searched about a Kapo project he told he was working on I discovered the scam Other people have had the same
