I am currently in contact with this guy and he is on your scam pages. He sent a text asking if the item is still for sale on Craigslist. He is insisting on using Google checkout for payment and his company will come pick up the item. He said he is bruce pelletier from 5209 Lebanon church rd. Clarendon, NC. 28432. I have been burnt before on Craigslist so I am being careful. Just thought u should know he is still out there.
