In my email back to the scammer, I was brief and to the point, restating the details from the ad. Of course soon thereafter, I get an email back from the scammer:
"I understand your message. The total amount for your item, is $225 + $25 for removing the advert from Craigslist, And my client is respossible for the payment that is why I ask for your information. A check of $2800. will be issued out to you.
"Please as soon as you got the check and get it cashed, You were to deduct the whole amount of this transaction and send me the rest balance to my shipper company.
Following this were details of where I could send the check. Ontario Canada? Not Nigeria? Okay, that's a surprise, but most definitely a scam. So... to anyone out there getting emails from this jerk. Beware and don't send any money!
