Hi there,
Thanks for the prompt response and i will love to make an instant purchase, so please and please do withdraw the advert from Craigslist, i dont mind adding an extra $50.00 for you to take the advert down from craigslist so that i can be rest assured that am in hand of the item. I will also like you to know that i will be paying via check,and it will be over night payment due to the distance. You dont need to bother yourself with the shipment ok,i will do take care of that. So i will need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of the check.
1. Your full name
2. Your mailing address be it residential or postal address
3. Your Phone Number.
Once again, I will like you to know that you will not be responsible for shipping…i will have my mover come over as soon as you have cashed the check. Thanks
Wilson.

Wilson,

1. You write horrific English that is redolent of Nigeria.

2. You ask for something silly and offer more money if we’ll do it.

3. You have used two different e-mail addresses.

4. Your first name is quite uncommon in the US and your last name more so.

Convince me that you are who you say you are and I’ll be happy to sell you the table.

If you’re not who you say you are, may God have mercy on you. Jesus died for poorly written lies just as much as He died for the sophisticated lies of Bernie Madoff. Repent and believe the gospel.

(If you are who you say you are, please forgive my harshness. Internet scammers are an especially hard-headed lot and I speak directly to them.)
