I got this email earlier today, regarding my amp on craigslist...

Hello Seller,

I would love to buy your item,all i want to know if is still in good conditions for use and if you're willing to accept a certified cashier check or money oder, I am okay with the price of the item and will make the payment as soon as possible.And also,don't worry about the pick up, i know a forwarding courier services here that will pick it up. And it would be done after you've got your check cashed. I await your response asap and I will response promptly as well.I wouldn't mind a $80 extra for you so you can be able to hold the item for me and also tell other interested parties that it has been sold,because i want to get it for my in law who would be celebrating his birthday soon,so i wouldn't want to loose the item.If this is okay with get back with the information today to enable me mail out the payment asap.

it sounds pretty sketchy, but I figure if they send me a fake check and I still have my amp, I didn't lose anything.

He's most likely going to email me saying something along the lines of


"I'm going to send you $3000 dollars via cashiers check, once you cash it and deduct the price of the item, please forward the rest of the money to (random recipient)" claiming they are some sort of moving company to pick up the amp.

So, I cash a fake check and send REAL money to this 2nd guy, who disappears off the face of the planet, and weeks later the bank calls me saying the check was fake and I owe them the $3,000.

So, I'm going to ride this out and see if they give me their number. If they don't that's a clear sign it's a scam

You can see if they are going to scam you by trying it but, THEY ARE GOING TO SCAM YOU, or at least try. Otherwise they would have said something about the amp, not, "your item". My friend once got scammed out of 200 bucks, this same way. If they arent willing to pay cash or give you a address to ship it to, they are lying. (Most of the time)
