Doesn't that just mean that the address is hosted in the UK? It is still a valid address internationaly.
So come on in

I'm not entirely sure how that's a scam, as long as you receive the money before posting anything and get it to be signed for so they can't claim they never received it...?

This.
Also, she says $280 to include the shipping. Seems extreme, but if you get the money, go for it.

I'm pretty sure he means paying for shipping. I've never used Craigslist though...


Doesn't everyone pay P&P?

Craigslist isn't meant for shipping anything. It was designed for local pickups.

"AVOID DEALS INVOLVING SHIPPING OR ESCROW SERVICES and know that ONLY A SCAMMER WILL "GUARANTEE" YOUR TRANSACTION."

if you have to ask, then yes, it's a scam.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

She actually wants you to have the secks with her daughter. Get the shipping address, and turn up naked with a bow wrapped round your raging hard-on and "happy birthday bitch-tits" written on your chest in strawberry sauce.

I got something like that on Kijiji, except it was for a cell phone and his son was at university in South Africa.

And he replied like 4 times while I talked to him about it and voiced my concerns. I decided it was a scam =p

I've listed a few items on Craigslist, and almost every time I get an email with a similar crazy scenario, and they always say "the item" instead of whatever you're actually selling.

Scam.

Ummm, petrol? Nip down to your local petrol station, buy a litre of the stuff and soak your balls in it, light them up and start playing with them.

Yep. The closest to the actual name I ever got was "your EPIPHONE", including the capital letters. I have that email sitting in my inbox right now, actually...

[quote="'-[NiL"]-']I will never understand why people even use Craigslist.

Bound to get shanked.
I've made quite of bit of money from craigslist, sold my broken PS3 for nearly 150, and some games to other people. if you bought it cheap and sell it reasonably priced, people will buy. else your trying to get rid of something you've had to long and no longer desire the item.
LOL

Wants to pay you $280 for something you listed at $180? Sounds totally legit to me, man.

All these scam e-mails say 'I will like you to do this and that'
Just the phrase 'Will like' makes me crack up.

rule of thumb: Just keep craigslist transactions local. It's not like it will be that hard to sell in town, and you know you're not getting jewed.


Easier to say in some places rather than others.

Yess, but was the phrase Jewed really necissary?
