    ((Scam or what)) lol im not stupid.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick response according to the description, I'm okay
    with the price and the condition pasted on Craigslist. I'm ready to
    make instant purchase. My mode of payment would be in cashier check
    drawn from a local Bank of America where i will arrange for a local
    pick up as soon as you get the payment, because that is the only
    convenient means for me and i promise everything will go smoothly. I
    really wish to be there to see the item but i don't have chance cause
    I'm a very busy person. Concerning the pick up, I will arrange for it
    after you receive the payment and it clears. Please get back to me
    with below information so that i can proceed with the payment
    immediately if you are selling to me.

    Name:
    Address:
    City:
    State:
    Postal Code:
    Phone Number:
    Total amount for the item :

    And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be overnight to you
    and i will let you know when its mailed out. Thanks and i hope we
    handle this in good faith while waiting to hear from you.

    Regards.

    selling a item on Criagslist this guy emails me today. ok sure im not stupid.

    From Craigslist: "FAKE CASHIER CHECKS & MONEY ORDERS ARE COMMON, and BANKS WILL CASH THEM AND THEN HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE when the fake is discovered weeks later."

    Have you seen some of the websites where sompe people scam the scammer? Make them take pictures of themselves to prove their "validity" with bags on their head, holding up signs with hilarious sayings, etc. And they paste their conversations too. Good read and quite funny.

    You should have given a fake name & address, then repeatedly hounded the guy saying "well, I gave you my info, where's the check!?" Drag that out for a while till the ________ gets the hint.

    I've seen a lot of scams even with cashiers checks. I've seen it where a cashiers check clears, then a week later your bank takes the funds back because the cashiers check was fraudulent.

    How they can do that is beyond me but it's being done, especially if it's from another state. The Bank will clear the check but if the issuing bank says the check is no god then your bank just yanks the funds out of your account...

    I agree, cash only.

    I have done deals with people paying with cashiers checks. I tell them the item will not be shipped until the check clears from the bank it was issued from. 10-15 days. They'll either comply or I never hear back.
    T-max,Revo,S max, VXL Revo, and A Jato on the way.
