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...
10, Ibara Road
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.

Same phone number, but different email address from this scammer trying to cheat me out of my Canon 7D on craigslist, as well. He stopped texting when I said: "Sorry, but cash only, in person for craiglist." Heh.
Same phone number, 978-699-4109, but different email address given: firstname.lastname@example.org Also trying to scam me on my camera listing on craigslist.

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."

I'm also selling a camera on craigslist. He's trying the exact same thing with me. Thank you for your post.
