Email Address:
posted our motorcycle for sale on craigslist and got a response right away. The persons email was very shady:

Thanks for the swift response,I am willing to know the lowest price of it.due to the nature of my job and location,i will not be able to come for inspection as am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.As for the payment i will be paying you via the fastest and secure way to pay online (PayPal).I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made and cleared to your account, transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the courier services company agent so you don\'t have to worry about no shipping included.You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply.If you don\'t have a paypal account, you can easily set up one at and sign up. its very easy.

Emailed the person and said no to his request cash and in person only. They insisted paypay but told him NO!
Did a search on the name and found thid site with another scam from the same person.
