I put an ad on craiglist...shortly after I receive an email from \"Alice Cage\" asking if I still had the item. I replied that I did, and then I received the following email- \"Thank you for getting back to me. Can you assure me that it\'s in good
condition and that i will not be disappointed with it. i will love to
buy this item.i want to be the best offer by adding $100 to your money
then keep other offers off,where i am i don\'t have access to my bank
account and i have access to my paypal account.I insisted on paypal
because i don\'t have access to my bank account online as i don\'t have
internet banking, but i can pay from my paypal account, as i have my
bank account attached to it, i will need you to give me your paypal
email address so i can make the payment asap for the item and if you
don\'t have paypal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to
http://www.paypal.com and get it set up , after you have set it up i
will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with paypal
so as to put the money through. I have a pick up agent that will come
and pick the item up after i have made the payment. Get back to me in
time.\"

Of course, this is an obvious scam. I googled the name with the word \"scam\" and came to multiple reports of the same message and scam. Look out!

" Thank you for getting back to me.
