|Anonymous () Added the following extra information on :2015-01-06 19:33:48|
was selling my motorcycle on craiglist - received a text asking me to email to firstname.lastname@example.org - I emailed to the email and receive the email below. .
Thank goodness I spoke to my son-n-law and he told me that it was a scam- I did not respond back to him about a paypal account. Just emailed to him that I would rather meet in person. I do hope this does not put any of my information in jeopardy.
If this is in response to my inquiry from Craigslist, I deliberately left this message for you because I will be out of service for few hours and do not want to keep you waiting. Please read my message below and get back to me. I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks I have read through your advert and from what I have seen,it is priced favorably compared to others so I want you to consider the motorcycle sold to me because I am ready to offer you the demanded price. I am Tech Sgt Mark Jason in the Air Force currently on duty serving the country. Presently I am out of town on duty in a remote area until March 29, 2015. We have a bad and fluctuating network here otherwise I would have called you and seal the deal on phone. At the moment, email and text messages works best for me. Nevertheless , I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible as I am ready to seal the deal right away and pay you via my PayPal account that is attached to my bank account as that is the only secure form of payment that I have access to right now. So,kindly get back to me with your FULL NAME AND PAYPAL EMAIL ADDRESS so that I can initiate the payment immediately. If you don't have a paypal account, it is absolutely free to set one up, kindly visit www.paypal.com and set up one. After we are done with the payment aspect and you have received your cash, a shipper will be hired that will come for the pick up. If this is a deal, then let me have the requested paypal details to proceed with the payment. Sincerely, Mark
