  Information
Name:
   Gerry Wollam
Telephone:
   1435 554-8479
I had a ad on Craigslist on 2/22/13 about a bike in Chicago. I was contacted by Gerry Wollam via a phone number at 1-435-554-8479. He said he wanted to buy the bike at my price listed and to have the money transferred via google checkout. I was suspicious that he didn\'t really want to talk on the phone and would rather talk through text message. When I did talk to him I thought be seemed very shady and didn\'t really have a interest. I asked him about why he wanted to buy the bike and how he found it. I all seemed too strange, and I went on this website and luckily found him to be a crook.

(1/2)My name is Gerry Wollam am from Magna, Utah, I\'m okay with the present condition as started in the advert and your asking price, but the easiest way for me(
2/2)to make the payment is through Google Checkout checkout.google.com. I\'ll take care of the pickup and delivery when the payment has been made.
I will need your name and contact address for the mover to calculate the cost of the shipment and your google checkout email account for me to make the payment.
Here are his text messages that he sent me, he seemed to be a European on the phone and did t have good grammar or spelling.
