The payment would be sent to you and the item will bepicked up as soon as you receive my payment,I will wait for thepayment to get cashed before i'd send my shipper for the pick up.Iwill like to tell you that i would be sending a check worth of $2500to cover the shipment of the item and the money for the item it shouldbe deduct .As soon as the check reaches you,have it cashed and removeyour money for the item and send the remaining fund to my shipper bywestern union money transfer.My shipper is also picking some of myother items up for me in the same city of yours so that is why i needto give him that amount.I will like you to remove $100 for yourrunning around in getting the check cashed.Please let me know if i cantrust you on this so we can move forward from here.Âplease in yourinfo.Regard

ok is this a scam? i put my cab on craigslist. being i never got scammed before so my knowledge is very limited on this issue. can anyone help ?

it's a common scam. It will be a counterfeit check, you cash it, then send the extra money to the guy, and the amp gets picked up by some shipper. The bank finds out it's counterfeit after a few weeks, they come after you, you've already paid actual money back to the scammer, and you're out a cab. common scam man.

Without a doubt a scam. As soon as he even mentions western union, and as far as craigslist goes, if he goes on any longer than "I'll be there tomorrow with cash" its probably a scam.

It's a scam - notice how he doesn't even mention what he's buying..it's just "the item".

That's because he's pasted that exact same response into dozens of craigslist ads.
Actually called Mark!

Does it look like this?

Great. I'll send you a check from my bank to cover the cost as I'm
happy with your early response.anyway, I'll not be available for the
pick-up of the item because of the nature of my job so i got the
services of a mover whom will come for the pick up of the item on my
behalf.so I'll
like you to provide me with the following information so as to
expedite the payment for the item.

1.Your full name to be on the check
2.Home or work address
3.Your phone number
4 The final price

As soon as you have cashed the check I'll make arrangement with my
mover to come over for the pick-up. Pls do me a favor of removing the
Ad from CL as I'm committed to buying it. Have a nice day.

I got this today after he inquired about my Gibson SG I posted on craigslist. I told him cash only bub.

EDIT: Here's his first letter. BS if you asked me.

I am satisfied with the description and condition of the
item listed above by you on the Ad, Please let me know if
the piece is still available for sale and kindly attach more
pictures if available. I have a problem talking on phone
because I'm hearing impaired I look forward to hearing from
you soon.

Sounds exactly like the response I got on a VW bus I was selling on craigs list. They said after I shipped it to em, wait it weighs 4000 pounds what do you mean ship it to you. No its a very common scam on craigs list. The ol check for more than the amount trick. Or the give us enough info to scam you trick.
#13
Definitely a scam. As soon as check or money orders or wiring money come up on craigslist, you back away, period.
