I got the following messages. I told her I wouldn't come down in price.

Lisa ascnurt@yahoo.com via craigslist.org
Feb 6 (2 days ago)

Hi! If you can come down a little on the price of this furniture, I would gladly buy as a gift for my son. Of course, I would have loved to call you to arrange and finalize but I am hearing impaired so I rely on email and am waiting for your reply...

And another:

Thanks so much. I appreciate your quick response. I have decided to move forward with the purchase of this furniture. Please, is there something new you need to tell me about its condition? If yes, kindly let me know because,I won't be able to see it as I have a surgery appointment scheduled for this week but I need to get this picked up and delivered asap. I think it would make a great gift for my son moving into a new place of his own and becoming a man. I know many people would like it so I will send a check for the originally quoted price and I want you to keep it for me. The furniture is going out of state with other sets so I would include the shipping fee on the check and send the movers after you have the check deposited and cleared. If we are moving ahead, kindly, email me the name and address for the check. Please, take your ad down because, I really want this furniture.

I am so glad you posted that this happened to you. I put it into google word for word what was sent to me and this site came up. So I emailed the link back to the person and told them if I was to receive correspondence from them again that I would contact the proper authorities!
Thanks again!

I received the same email this morning on a recent post for an item I'm selling on Craigslist here in Seattle, WA.  I had a funny feeling about the phone number (more specifically the area code) and decided to Google the number.  I just happened to come across this web posting.  It's good to know I'm not the only one but it's unfortunate that this person/company is doing this.

Ha ha! Shoot... I was almost excited to sell my item.

Thanks for your reply. I have decided to pay the quoted price in the ad  because, I know there are other buyers interested and I want you to keep it for me only as I am buying it for my son that I just reconciled with and there is no better way to start afresh than to buy this for him because he is really in need of it especially now that he is expecting his first child and I am about to become a grandmother. I have seen it and please let me know any other thing you think I should know about its condition as I have a surgery appointment and I won't be able to see it. I would just have my bank issue you a bank check for the amount quoted. I would also call and arrange a shipper who will be picking it up and have them paid immediately but if I am unable to do that, I would just add the cost of the shipping on the check. Let me have your name and address for the check please.

I posted on Craigslist and got the message below. Since the area code is in New Jersey and I don't live in New Jersey, I figured I'd do a little research on the phone number before responding.  Stumbled on this site. ...after reading the posts it is obviously a scam.  Thanks for posting your experiences, I am glad for sites like this, please keep posting. Here's the email I got:

This was the second after I replied that I had some else interested but if she could get this weekend I would lower price a little. Its very touching....

I appreciate you writing back. I priced the furniture here and it is much more than your price. Unfortunately i won't be able to come see it anymore as my business appointment in your district has been postponed. I am purchasing this furniture for my cousin's new home, after all i have seen the picture and i think am satisfied. I will mail you a certified bank check for the quoted price, and add funds to cover the shipping. I will be on a look out for a mover to handle the delivery so it doesn't stress you. Let me know if these is understood and if it is something you would like to move on with by sending your full name and address...

Strange, but yes, if they don't reference your specific item you are selling on Craigslist it is probably a scam.  Anyhow, it seems like it would be asy to catch these people given they have a cell phone number, but perhaps it does not work or is a pre-paid phone.

Yup, +1 on the Dallas area.  This time it's the 717-469-5947 number, but from Igor.  Haven't gotten scammed, but plenty of phishing and can recognize one when I see it.  Thought I'd put an update up!  If the sender doesn't specifically list your link or item, or if they want to use third party shipping they set up, don't even bother - 99.9% of the time it's a scam!

Here is another alias email from "sophia"  chillynsexy@yahoo.com  

I got the bogus Citibank check too....it looked like it cleared okay but then I caught it just in time.  She cost me time and money in bank fees.

If you do get one of these bogus scam emails.....turn the table on her and give her a phony physical address to send it to....I'm sure it costs her time and money to produce those phony checks then mail them!!!!  Then just sit back and watch her send you more phony emails thinking she has a payday coming!!!

Hello , how is your day going? I just want to inform you that i have sent the check with the shipping fund included.

Once you have the check, deposit it and when it clears (which shouldn't take more than a day or two according to my bank), you will be sending the added funds to the movers. This is to enable them make necessary pick up and delivery arrangement. Please write back to let me know you get this message. Thanks.

Talk about scum of the earth....
