Advertised furniture on Craigslist. Got the following response.

Larry Edward:


Thanks for the swift response, just to let you know that am okay with the condition and price of the item, am ready for the purchase and my form of payment will be by sending you Check via UPS next day delivery.

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 check is being cashed,as i have other properties to be moved along with yours.

I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might want to have a good look.Please do get back to me with your full name and address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment.

Gary Fergus:

I am very keen. How i wish i could come forviewing and inspection as am currently out of thecountry ATM and i want it picked up before i get back, though i will be back in couple of weeks. I would like to pay you using paypal due to my inability to make a bank deposit which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account with paypal on www.paypal.com if you dont have one. I will make a solid pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your paypal account. Have a nice day. Few more photos will be appreciated
BOTH SOUNDED VERY SUSPICIOUS!

Good to read from you and thanks for the details provided. I presume we seal this a deal? I'll contact my secretary so that payment will be issued out to you ...please i want you to consider the item sold and keep off other interested buyers that would make inquiry cos am ready for it's purchase. 8-15-12 As i have let you know that pick up and mover's fee will be included in your payment, so upon cash of check, you'll make the pick up money payable to the movers and the movers would arrange appropriate time for pick up at your location as i have other properties to be moved.I believe this is based on trust.
Thanks for your understanding. 8-18-12 Thanks for the honesty towards this transaction so far.Well, the overpayment is meant to cover the cost of shipment for the item alongside my other properties including tax and insurance plus the movers fee. Here's the USPS # 9101969010386902969637 and the movers information below.
Name: BERNADETTE CALDWELL Address: 30 N Lincoln Ave, State:FL City: Tampa Zip Code: 33609
Do let me know your schedule for the week regarding pickup as i have some other properties to be moved alongside the item.
Please do act accordingly as agreed after deducting your money for the item, make the rest fund available to the movers via Western Union Money Transfer at any of their outlet around you or Grocery store and get back to me with the transfer details below (as it appears on the receipt) so i can contact the movers for the pick-up at your location ....
Deduct the western union transfer charges from my fund also $50 for yourself (meant for any hassle or run around).Sender's name and address (as it appears on the western union receipt) mtcn number ( 10 digits #) Actual amount sent.
Hope i can trust you with the overpayment? Your Honesty and transparency will be appreciated .
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
