this person has tried to buy from, i advertised 4 different types of cameras that i had for sale they were all new and i had 50 in stock. the buyer said he wanted to buy all four video cameras i questioned him to ask why he needed all four, his response was they are gifts for his family i taught ok that is a good reason to buy four. he offered to pay the price i asked for the total of Â£805.63 including shipping with DHL, he then provided his address it was a Nigerian address " not that i have anything against Nigerians buying however i have had several problems with Nigerian buyers so i take extra care" i searched the email address and many scams came up i also found the email on alibaba.com where 80% of Nigerians are scamers!
a few hours after he got my email i revived more emails saying the king of Nigeria was in trouble and had to hide his money away so he would not be killed" PFFT
i then sent him a link to this page about him he replied saying i have made the funds wtf!

Sounds eerily familiar to Henry Edward's scam ... email from Kristen Cook: Thanks for your response, I am quite okay with your price, I need you to understand that I am willing and ready to purchase it right away, put it off the AD site, consider me as your favorite buyer, and Please note that I have a shipper/mover who handles my shipping arrangement anywhere in the world,he would be coming for the pickup, after you have received payment, which would be through paypal, If this is acceptable, advice soon as I am an hydrographer and I am buying this for my son,I am at work right now .I can only pay through pay pal at the moment as I do not have access to my bank account online,but I have it attached to my pay pal account, and this is why I insisted on using pay pal to pay,all I will need is your paypal email address to make the payments,and if you do not have a pay pal account yet,its pretty easy to set one up at www.paypal.com,i will be expecting your email.I have a pick up agent that will come for the pick up after payments has been sorted. I want you to provide me with the following information for me to proceed with the Payment...
Your PayPal e-Mail Address : Full name: Your Full Contact address:
Note: i'll also include the Shipping company's fee so kindly Get back to me with your PayPal email account so i can proceed with the payment asap.. Thanks
Looking forward to read from you.

Simialar situation as Renate and almost the exact same wording. Responded right away and offered over the amount asked for on Craigslist. Here are his emails. FIRST EMAIL: Ok just wanted to make sure nothing is been left out. I will be purchasing this for $2,500. Payment will be sent using PayPal and i will handle SECOND EMAIL: Thanks for your response. So i will be paying directly into your PayPal account without any delay, and i hope you have a paypal account. If you have one already, just send me the address to send it to, which is the email address you use for it or you can send me a paypal money request, so once i receive the details i will go ahead with the payment through PayPal and then i will contact my shipping company after you get the payment.
I will need your home address for the merchandise to be Picked Up by the Shipping Company..
Thanks for your posting!
