Time for a bit of fun....

PostBy: Richard S. On: Mon Dec 10, 2012 12:35 pm

I have my one high lift listed on Craigslist. I got an email asking if it was still available and after responding that it was this is the response I got:


Hi there,

Thank you for getting back to me. Please assure me that it's in good
condition and that i will not be disappointed with it.I'm ready to pay your
asking price and to be honest, i wanted to buy this for my Dad, but the
issue is i am an oceanographer and i do have a contract to go for which
starts tomorrow and am leaving any moment from now.The contract is strictly
no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. But I'm able to
access email anytime as we will make use of laptop so my only quickest
payment option is PayPal as i can send money via PayPal anytime. Since I'm
requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible
for all the paypal fee/charges on this transaction and if you don't have an
account with paypal, its pretty easy, safe and secured to open one. Just
log on to http://www.paypal.com. I hope we can make the purchase as fast as
possible? I have a mover that will come for it once payment clears and they
will be handling the title for me. So i look forward to hear from you soon.

Many Thanks...


What I need here is some ideas, something similar to this, if you have never read this it's long but worth it:

Any ideas? I know it's scam but you need money in a Paypal account to transfer it? Yes? Presumably they stop payment then?

What I'm thinking is maybe tell them the truck is sold however I do have a piece of pure Pennsylvania anthracite for sale that is $500. Maybe try and get them to send me a pre paid shipping label. :D

Tell them that you already have youir own "agent" to handle the transaction due to you being sent to Iraq as a private contractor.

You have already made arrangements for the truck to be delivered to your own private storage facility until the transaction clears. But that if he provides you with his bank information, you will alert your agent to release the vehicle once your agent sees that the transaction clears. Or if he prefers, he can wire the money to you..........
