Scammers. . .

Anyone else out there sick of these asinine responses anytime you try to sell or purchase online? It's just obnoxious really.

Hello,
Thanks for the prompt response and i will love to make an instant purchase, so please and please do withdraw the advert from Craigslist, i dont mind adding an extra $50.00 for you to take the advert down from craigslist so that i can be rest assured that am in hand of the item. I will also like you to know that i will be paying via check,and it will be over night payment due to the distance. You dont need to bother yourself with the shipment ok, i will do take care of that. So i will need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of the check.
1. Your full name
2. Your mailing address be it residential or postal address
3. Your Phone Number.

Once again, I will like you to know that you will not be responsible for shipping...i will have my mover come over as soon as you have cashed the check. Thanks
Donald.
Donald, Donald, Donald (as you call yourself). . . Scams are a waste of my time. Further, you'd get a lot further in American scams if you brushed up on your English and grammar; as it stands you just sound extremely uneducated, which tends to send up red flags in anyone's head. Maybe you can find a book on English and grammar somewhere on Craigslist; best of luck.

Boy oh boy, have you been busy this week (or is it bored, being in the house all week waiting for Fay!) I've never had this problem!! (selling something on craigslist). Something about my generation, we just keep everything because our parents did, (they grew up in the depression and always wanted or needed something.) "You never know when you might be able to use it!"
