Craigslist Scammer

Received these emails in response to ads I posted on Craigslist from a crook who tried to con me with the Certified Bank Check via Postal service Express mail / UPS overnight delivery Scam.

Here’s details about the scam – http://craigslist.org/about/scams

Just take a sentence from the email you received and you can find many posts about this type of scam.

For example, copying & pasting this sentence in google “Actually I am sorry that I could not longer come to pick it in person as planned” brought up this post; https://reddit.com/r/Scams/comments/37c51b/craigslist_scam/

The email this scammer sent to me has been reported to Microsoft security.

Emails received on November 15, 2015 about 2 different items I have for sale.  Note that the messages are identical

In these emails, the scammer tried to get my phone number.  By saying he’s going to come by and pick up my items on specific days, it makes him seem legit.

As you can see from the emails above, his next move would be to say he can’t make it by saying “sorry that I could not longer come to pick it in person as planned” and then say “I am ready to make  instant purchase with my mode of payment would being a Certified Bank Check via Postal service Express mail or UPS overnight delivery”
