This guy contacted me regarding a Craigslist item I just listed last night. He seemed quite interested. I told him to phone me and gave him my number. He sent back the following email which matches several of the other complaints about this guy. THANKS SO MUCH for being there Scamdex, or I would have gotten caught up with this joker. I found you when I searched FB with his email address and your website popped up. Cheers! S.




thanks for your quick response, i\'m okay with the present condition as
started in the advert and 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 a bank check, i\'ll wait until your bank
clears the check before we proceed with the pickup. I\'ll also take
care of the pickup and delivery when the check cleared, provide me
your name, address, city, state, zip code for me to issue the check to
you and also your phone number for me to contact you.

Regard\'s
