Craigslist WWYD

I have some things for sale on CL right now. Prices clearly listed and asking cash only as payment. Yesterday afternoon, I got an email regarding the item when I replied the email address it went to was different than the one on the original email (make sense?). I just realized that I got another email 1 minute after the first this time from the 2nd email address (still following?) but it went to my spam folder. Here's a c/p of that message:

Quote:
Hello! let's do like this, actually now I'm not in town for now, I came to
visit my son so i wont be able to meet with you but am ok with the price as
seen on the advert, I'll proceed in issuing a Check out to you and when you
received the check , I will make arrangement for pick-up. So get back to me
with below details asap.

*****Full Name
*****Address
*****City
*****State
*****Postal Code
*****Phone Number
*****The price Amount of 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. I need you to be honest with the sale
as I am a God fearing person.

GET BACK TO ME WITH THE ACTUAL PRICE OF THE ITEM

--
B.Regards
WWYD?

Re: Craigslist WWYD

It is definitely a scam. I wouldn't even bother responding.

Re: Craigslist WWYD

Scam is to pay for it using paypal and have their "agent" pick it up. Somebody picks up the item and then they contact paypal and claim they never got it. Paypal refunds them because you have no proof of having handed them the item (i.e., DC #) and you lose the item as well as payment. Definite scam - I'd ignore it. On craigslist, I do cash only and person must pick up at time they pay for it.

Re: Craigslist WWYD

Thanks everyone! I thought so but this is my first time selling on CL so I didn't know if I was being overly cautious or not.
