Warning, Craigslist scammer!!! 203-684-7170 texted me from a Craigslist ad, said they would pay $100. over asking price if I just sent the item to his brother at a Nigeria address. They said they were going to paypal me, but, then paypal caught them. Here is their address: Femi Babalola. 180 St. Patric St. Oke Ilase, Akure. Nigeria. Zip code 233124.
Oke-Oro, Ilase-Idominasi, Ibokun, Osun is located in Nigeria.
Just happened to me today so I decided to look him up. New it was a scam from the start and I'm surprised he didn't even change his cover story! HAHAHA I'm dying or laughter.
