Recieved email of overpayment. \"Hello,
Your payment was mailed out but I just found out that you were overpaid. The payment meant for another transaction was made out in your name and sent to you. However I want to believe I won\'t have a problem with you on this. Once you receive the payment, Please proceed to the bank and cash the money order, deduct your money and send back the balance to me through western union. So I can get this resolved and then proceed with arrangement for pick-up. Once more, I hope I can fully trust you with this?
I will await your response on this so my mind can be at rest.
Thanks\"

Another reply to the same ad I posted before -- this guy seems to be the same person as "Bill Mazzola" billibdf756@gmail.com
"Thanks for the response.. I check the post again and am okay with the condition and the price .Payment will be by check and i will it send via USPS which will be next day delivery, i will send you a tracking number to check it as soon as it is sent out to you. I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up company to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved along with this item.I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might want to have a good look. Please do get back to me with your full name and address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment to you asap. Regards...."

Craigslist buyer trying to set up scam:
"Hello, Thanks for the response, I'm glad to know its still available. I'm willing to pay your asking price. I will likely make payment by Money Order as its the only way I can pay you at the moment as I'm actually out of the State due to my post in the US NAVY. I will make arrangement for pick-up after payment has been received by you. I don't mind adding a little extra $30 so you can keep it in my favor.you should get your payment in within 4 - 6 business days. Kindly reply with your full name, cell phone number,and address where payment will be sent, I will appreciate if you can get the ad off Craigslist so I can be sure you are keeping it in my favor. Awaiting your reply."
