Thank you for getting back to me.Can you assure me that it\'s in good state and i will not be disappointed with it.I\'m ready to pay your asking price and to be honest, i wanted to buy this for my Son and i want it to be a surprise gift for him, but the issue is i am an oceanographer and i do have a contract to go for which starts tomorrow and am on my way right now.The contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. But I\'m able to access email anytime as we will make use of laptop and also i can text you any time so my only quickest payment option is PayPal as i can send money via PayPal anytime.Since I\'m requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the PayPal fee/charges on this transaction and if you don\'t have an account with PayPal, its pretty easy, safe and secured to open one. Just log on to http://www.paypal.com/. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? I have a mover that will come for it once payment clears and they will be handling all the necessary thing for me. So i we be looking forward to hear back from you soon...

I just received the exact same email for a listing I have on Craigslist..... I responded positively to his email with no information from me.
I just found this notice...and will stop any further communication directly with this scammer.
Here's his email:
