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 Check 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

I had a item for sale of generally low value on craigslist.org. This person replied to my ad via email response: "Hi, I'm interested in buying. If its still for sale, Please send me your email address or phone number because its hard to get through craigslist."
I responded with my phone number to show him the item. I immediately received an out-of-state cell phone text message from this person which contains some misspellings: "I'm interested in buying. Your payment ll be mail once u text me your name and address. U'll get the Money Order in 5 days (plus $30 for keeping it in my favor). Arrangement for pick-up ll be received and cashed the payment. Awaiting your info. Bill"
Since this was an out-of-state phone number which showed up and sounded like a setup for identity theft, I immediately did a google.com search for the phone number only. This scamdex.com website showing this person's number and name was the second search results link which showed up.
