I received the following e-mail in response to a Craigslist ad:

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 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 responded that I was not comfortable with this transaction and I would only sell in a person to person meeting to deliver and receive payment. I got no further response from this person.
