I have a PC listed on Craigslist and I received a full price offer. He sent me an email stating this, Sounds sketchy to me...


Thank you so much for your response, I've been working really long weeks at work so I won't be able to meet with you before purchase, but am ok with the price and condition as shown on
the advert, I'll proceed in issuing a check to you and when you receive the payment and it clears, I will make arrangement for pickup. So get back to me with below details asap.

Full name :
Physical Address (Only,not po box):
City, State, Zip:
Your cell Phone Number:
Deal Price:

As soon as this is provided, payment will be overnight to you through FEDEX next day delivery and I will let you know then tracking number of the package. I will also add an additional $50 for
keeping other buyers off till my check gets to you, also please delete the posting or mark as sold.

Thanks and I hope we handle this in good faith while waiting to
hearing from you.

It's a scam. The check he sends you will be fake, and he will include extra money to pay for his shipping, which he will ask you to forward to a third party. He hopes that you send the money before the check is discovered to be fake and the payment reversed.

From the writing, the scammer is a West African.

Just delete the email and don't respond. What email address is the scammer using?

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
