selling a hot tub on craigslist

Email Address:
I advertised a hot tub on Craigslist for sale and this person contacted me and wanted to buy the hot tub but of course she is out of town and will have a mover come get it but she will only buy the hot tub if she paid by Pay Pal.

This is one of her emails (she can not even spell). I emailed her and told her I do not do not use Pay Pal when she mentioned it in her 1st

I\'m satisfied with
your firm/advert price, As im requesting this transaction should be
done via PayPal so the PayPal charges is on me.Payment will be made
via PayPal only if you don\'t have an account, its very easy, safe and
secured log on to ( i\'m present out of town for my new
project, so im sorry i will not be able to come look at it in person
and that\'s the only reason why PayPal is the only payment option. I
hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible?
