This is the response from the same suspiciously cheap piano on craiglist:


Thank you for your interest in buying our piano. It looks exactly as pictured, over the years, this piano has been gently played, very well cared for and tuned regularly. The standard piano bench shown in the photo is included, the bench accommodates two people side by side.
As I`m pregnant and in about a month I will give birth to a beautiful little girl, me and my husband have decided to sell some of our stuff to get some money to rent a bigger apartment. We are selling it for only $2,500 because that\'s the amount we need to pay the loan we already contracted to get the apartment(we need more room for the little one) and hope to get the money in a few days so we are trying to pull up a quick sale.
I need a fast transaction, and I can`t afford to waste time on advertising the piano at the true value.
If you have any more questions please don`t hesitate to reply.

Thank you,
Lauren & Mike Neilson

My name is Laura Albright, I'm emailing you regarding the Yamaha C 3 Conservatory Series Grand Piano that I have for sale. The instrument is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no dings, special marks whatsoever. The piano has been gently played, very well cared for, measures 6' with classic grand piano design and desirable satin ebony finish. The satin ebony finish is hard to find on a Yamaha piano. The high gloss ebony finish is much more common. The standard piano bench is included. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. I'm selling the piano because my 21's years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee coming to our home at his little brother birthday. It was his piano and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. The price that I'm asking is $2,000.00
Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .
Thank you,
Laura and Michael Albright Hello again,
Please let me explain to you the process of this transaction and you can decide if you want to proceed or not.
As I told you in my first email, I recently lose my son. I also got a new job and moved to Omaha Nebraska in order to start over. I'm in Omaha Nebraska but my presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Amazon. The instrument is in Omaha at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-3 days. You will have 3 days to test it and inspect the piano prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back at my expense. If you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name, address, and phone#.
Once I have your info I will forward them to Amazon to get things started. Amazon will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details.
Laura and Michael Albright
