Hello ,
Thanks for the swift response... I\'m ok with the condition and price
of the item and am ready for its purchase. My form of payment will be
by sending you Certified Check via USPS with a second day air
delivery.i have taken a close look at the advert,and am completely
satisfied so please do withdraw the advert from Craigslist.I don\'t
mind adding an extra $50 for you to take the advert down from
Craigslist, so that i can be rest assured that am in hand of the item.
I\'ll be responsible for the pick-up and the movers fee will be
included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up company
to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after
check has been cashed as I have other properties to be moved alongside
the item.Would have love to come over for viewing but I\'m afraid that
might not be possible due to my work frame.Do you have more pics so i
can have a good look. Do get back to me with your below details to
facilitate the mailing of the payment..

Full name to be on the check:
Full contact address with your apt#:
Contact numbers:
Zip code:

**Once again ,I will like you to know that you will not be responsible
for shipping of this item. my shipper will move down to your place for
the pick soon as the check clear. hope you assure me in hand
of the item if no,kindly ignore this message...

Have a nice day.

selling a bed for 275.oo Received a fake check for 1600.00. Bank suggested to not cash this check. It didn't have a name above the signature in print. It did not have a watermark when you got it wet. Looked like a print job on one side and then the other. w/ black and white on front and color on back with a generalized signature box. Sad and sorry job.
