Scam Email
They generalized the information from my \"wanted\" ad, and had generic pictures that could be anywhere. and pictures of the inside that can be found if you search for images. it began with a confirmation to my wanted ad and to contact them for more information.. so when i did that then they were free to use the email address and come up with this... However the problem that most alerted me was the phone number when he said he lived now in michigan... I lived there and i know there is no 202 exchange for michigan it is in fact from Washington DC.. i never called the number nor will i, this is definately a scam
