I posted an Ad on Craigslist to sell my Canon 7D camera for $1,250.00. Mike Cordova / Taylor replied via text from phone # 785 289 5206 wanting to buy it. He gave me his e-mail address to reply with details. dcalmd3@gmail.com I had already had all details on the Ad. He asked questions about the Camera that I already had in the Ad.

Mike wanted to use Paypal where I would make an Invoice and he would pay it. The he wanted me to ship the Camera to his son studying abroad in Nigeria. The address is below...

Adewale Taylor
10, Ibara Road
Abeokuta
Ogun State
234039
Nigeria

I called paypal and you have to be careful as people can submit money, then trick you with a different shipping address than what is on the paypal form. The receiver can also dispute that they didn\'t receive the correct merchandise and get the money back from you.

I googled Mike Cordova and found this site with complaints.... thank God for that.

If something smells fishy, it probably is.

Just got a text message from this # in response to a CL ad I put up about a camera I'm selling. Thx to this site, I don't even need to respond to him since I know he's a scammer. I have no other information other than the phone #. Not going to even respond to him since I put in the ad that if it's still up, then the camera is still available. His text msg simply reads: "Pls text back if this post still available."
