On Craigslist he wants to buy my item & he wants me to open a google account. This is what he emailed to me:

am located at Chattanooga, TN,It\'s okay with me. You don\'t have to worry about the shipment, because I will hire Shipping Company that they will come for the Pick-up at your location. you can easily get an account with google checkout by visiting checkout.google.com its reliable and easy to use, i find it the easiest way to use my credit card safely and reliable method of payment, you only have to add your credit/debit card account to it and your money will be transfer into your credit/debit card account when the payment has been made, get back to me with your google checkout email account when you done, for me to make the payment. looking forward to read from you asap
