Am trying to sell my trailer on Craigslist and received the following email back from Larry Kennedy. For some reason it made me think and i checked and see that he appears to be buying a lot of stuff for his dear old dad. I was not scammed.


Thank you for getting back to me.Can you assure me that it\'s in good state and that i will not be disappointed with it?I\'m ready to pay your asking price and to be honest, i want to buy this for my Dad as his birthday gift. I a marine biologist that works on the sea at the moment. phone calls making and visiting of website are restricted but i squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an email regarding it 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 pay pal 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 . i will like to see more pics i look forward to hear back from you soon. details that i needed are below Your PayPal e-Mail Address : Full name: Firm Price: Your cell phone number: God bless you .

Have a motorcylce for sale and received the same email about paying through paypal (send him all my information) and he'll have a shipper pick it up. No good has come from over a half dozen stories I've read. Friend of mine said, cash or bank check and only in person.
Thank you for getting back to me,can you assure me that i will not be disappointed if i buy this Vehicle as a Birthday gift for my Dad? as I'm ready to pay your asking price but not cash in person because I'm an Oceanographer and i am presently on a contract which will end in couple of months,the contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area,but I'm able to access my mail through my laptop and my only quickest payment option is PayPal,its safe fast and secure and i will be responsible for the pay pal transaction charges so you can get your expected amount. If you don't have an account with paypal,its pretty easy to open one,Just log on to www.paypal.com and sign up.I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? as my Dad's birthday is fast approaching,am sure he will love this vehicle,his a mechanic and a handy man,so if there is anything that need to be fixed in it just let me know he will handle it. I have a mover that will come for the pick up once payment clears in your account and he will handle the title for me.I look forward to hear from you with the information below.
