Two identical e's via Craigslist London. He's put but still says Zip code.

He had e'd before, (via Craigslist) referring to 'item' - now it is a plain 'it.'

I suppose there's a chance he's real.:hmm:


Thanks for your response to my mail, I hope it is in good condition
like it stated because I have taken a close look at the advert and am
completely satisfied, Your firm price seems cool and Okay by me. I
would love to make an outright purchase of the item immediately.
Please I will like you to keep off the item from other buyers as I'm
very serious about this purchase. I'll want you to remove the advert
from web and consider this item is sold to me, I'll be paying via
Certified check and the check will deliver to you in next three days
Check that would be issued out in your as soon as I get the necessary
details for payment .I would have love to come down and make the
purchase of the item in person but I'm a very busy individual with
work and other obligations I will be responsible for the picking and
shipping process so in order words I have a shipper that handles my
shipment,they will be the one to pick up the item from your location
once the payment has been received and confirmed by you.So i want to
be the best offer by adding 20 to your money and i hope you will
keep this item for me

GET BACK TO ME WITH THIS DETAILS

Your Full Name
Contact Physical Address not p.o box
City and State with Zip Code
Cell phone number

I will like you to know that you will not be responsible for shipping
i will have my mover to come over as soon as you have the check,and
i will get back to you once my secretary made the payment out to
you.

...and says check rather than cheque. Mind you the Engrish is, as usual, 'orrible.

Yes, and I'd say it's about 0.000000000000001%. And that's only because I'm feeling generous as I've just had a lovely cooked full Irish breakfast and about to set off to drive round a beautiful coastline.

It's classic Nigerian overpayment/WU scam. He will ask you to contact his 'shipper' : [email protected] or something, and then you will get a fake or stolen bank draft. Hope the coffee smells good when you wake up!

I suppose if you tell him to get his shipper to collect and pay you in cash, he'll be upset.

Glad to hear you're enjoying your stay in our wee country Cape! Seems the weather might just be kind to you...

If you are interested, there's a seaplane festival on at Lough Erne today and tomorrow, complete with two Catalinas. 2 hour drive each way though...

Saw the Catalina on the telly this AM.

Most impressed. It looked good.
Couple of old boys reliving days gone by. Lovely.

18 Hour endurance seemed a bit much though???
