He finally replied with this:

Payment for your table (Personal Checks) has been sent to you. As soon as you receive the package in your mail, pls follow processing instructions carefully so we can set up a pick up date asap and wrap up the sale. The package contains a total payment of $2,390.

===HOW TO FILL THE PERSONAL CHECKS===
The Personal Checks has 2 sections

The 1st section {writes pay to}.....in this space you are to fill in your full names and address.
The 2nd section {writes from}.....in this space you are to fill in my name and address:

Name: DAVID BAILEY
Addy: 2351 WHITELEAF WAY CANTON, GA 30115

Once you receive the package in your mail, you take them to your bank and cash or make a next day deposit. You then deduct the exact amount for your table, plus $50 inconvenience fee for holding the table, you then go to the closest Western Union outlet and send the remaining funds to the Truck Driver via Western Union Money Transfer. The driver would be coming to your location or any public place for the pick up of the table after receiving the funds.

In summary, you deduct the amount for your table + $50 + Western Union Money Transfer charges and send the rest to the Driver. Here are the details of the Truck Driver who you will be sending the funds to:

Name: Christopher Bostic
Addy: 1111 S Main St
City: Marion
State: Virginia
zip code: 24354

After sending the funds to him via Western Union Money Transfer, You are to get back to me with the wire transfer details below:

1. The exact amount sent
2. Money Transfer Control Number(MTCN)
3. Senders Full Name/ Address on the receipt

Thanks
Mr David

I to him with the following : (I starred some things out because I used a real address and name, although the rest is all B.S.)

There may be some delay getting you the difference. I believe you were given the wrong mailing address. I think I know what happened. I had my assistant at work make my reply for me regarding payment and where to send it. I had given her a list of things to do for me including several other correspondences I wished her to take care of. Unfortunately she was in a rush as well and it seems she managed to get two of the addresses I had written down for her mixed up. In reviewing that email, it appears she in fact did use *******  street as the mailing address.. She was responding to my good friend detective ***** concerning a charity event we are attending. I needed to mail some t-shirts and things for him and some of the other detectives.  ****** street is in fact the address of our local  Police Department. I called Terry and asked him to keep an eye out for your letter. I also asked if he wouldn?t mind running a check,  on your check, once he gets it just to make sure everything seemed legitimate, considering all the scams and dishonest people that can be associated with Craigslist. I am sure this will not be a problem and consider it just a formality but it will put my mind at ease. Once we have determined that there isn?t a problem I will be in touch. (Or they will, depending?) Thank you for your patience in this matter and have a great day.

I am in the middle of trying to mess with this guy, but so far I'm not sure he took the bait. I googled his email dave005dave@aol.com. This didn't turn up anything specifically but the form letter he sends out had almost the same exact wording. He asked about a table and I replied and said yes the table is still for sale and that the lowest I would go is 150. He said that was fine and that he couldn't make it personally, blah, blah, blah, please give me a name and address and I'll send you a check. I replied and told him to make my check out to Barney Fife and gave him the address of our local police department(By the way, I also changed the name that shows up in the "From"  line in my email to Bernard Fife before ever replying to him). He replied saying payment is on the way and his accountant was in a rush and  accidentally sent me $2390.  He wanted me to keep an extra $50 for my trouble and send the difference to the truck driver via Western Union. He ended this last email by asking me to confirm receipt of his email and to provide a number where I could receive text messages.  I replied saying that "well I guess I can send you the difference, I just want to get rid of this table. 2390 - 150 for the table - 50 trouble fee = 2190". I  told him that texting was disabled on my phone but if he could just reply via email with instructions on how to get him his money that would be great.
I already have my reply typed up and ready to go but he hasn't replied yet. Once I am sure he did in fact send me a check, or money order or whatever, I am going to tell him that my assistant made the reply concerning payment and my mailing address for me(since I was also so busy) and that she had it mixed up with a different mailing address.  I am going to give him some B.S. about how my good friend is a police detective and that my assistant accidentally used his mailing address which she had in front of her because she needed to send some t-shirts and the like for a charity event we are all involved in. Or I might just laugh at him and tell that I was scamming him from the start and that he can f**^* off. I'm not sure yet.

Yes, I e-mailed back and forth with this guy seeing many of the same messages shown here.  On the same day, the first contact, with the same message showed up in both my inbox AND my spam folder.  My inbox message came from agilarDanial@mail.com and my spam message came from the famous eddy404eddy@aol.com saying:  is your sofa still available.  Here's the rest of the dialogue:

Me:
 
Yes, it is, and thanks for your interest.  When can you come get it?  If you live in Barre, I can deliver it this weekend after I return home from Atlanta.  If you plan on coming to get it, my father will be home when he's not working.  Please let me know what you want to do.  Thanks.

Him:

Hello,
I received your initial email stating that your sofa is still available for sale. I would like to know the lowest price you would go for it.

I would have been happy to travel down for the payment and pick-up myself, but I just relocated due to an urgent project. However, my daughter can easily send a Money Order to you on my behalf and you will receive payment within 3 business days. She has also made arrangements with a truck driver who will come for the pick up of the sofa at your address or any public address of your choice. I'll appreciate it if you consider it sold to us via this means.

We will only come for pick up after you have received the Money Order and they have been duly processed at your Bank. I would like to know how your name should appear on the Money Order and what valid residential or office address should we mail it to. We are ready to make payment as soon as we get your mailing details. Thanks for selling it to us via this medium.

Mr David

Me:

Sir,

As far as how low I will go for the sofa, all I will ask is what will you offer?

Him:

Hello,
     I am fine with the price and ready to make payment asap. Pls make available a valid address where we can send the Money Order to, and how your name should appear on it. Like i said in my previous email, we will only come for the pick up after they have been duly processed at your bank.
Thanks


Mr David

Me:

Hello Mr. David

Please make the money order out to my father, (father's name omitted) and send it to:
(Address deleted)

Thanks for your business and I will contact you when the money order is processed.

Him:

I got your email with the details to where the payment for your sofa (Money Order) would be sent to. Consider it sold by removing the ad from the classified site.

I forwarded your mailing details to my daughter, and she told me a few minutes later that she has sent the Money Order to your mailing address, and would be delivered in about 2 business days. My daughter was in a rush out so she sent a total of $1,890. She merged your sofa payment with the truck drivers expenses.
Once you receive the payment package in your mail, you go to your bank, cash or make a next day deposit, you then deduct the exact amount for your sofa, plus $50 inconvenience fee for holding the sofa for us, you then assist in sending the remaining funds to the Truck Driver via Western Union Money Transfer. The driver would be coming to your location or any public place for the pick up of the sofa after receiving the funds. I hope i can trust that you will send the Drivers funds in due time so he can come for the pickup as soon as he receives the payment from you.


Pls acknowledge that you have received this email and will be on the lookout for the package. I would also like you to provide a number where you can be reached, or a number where you can receive text messages on. Thanks


Mr David

After THIS message above, I responded with WHAT!!!!!!!! in the subject line and the following:

Sir,

I'm not going to do all that.  I certainly hope that there is a return address on the mailing that you sent, because I will be promptly returning this money order to that address.  You did not mention that I would have to do all this for a $50.00 sofa.  Sorry, but no deal.  This is way more complicated than it needs to be.  If there is anyway to retrieve that money order from the mail, I suggest that you take some action to do this.  Otherwise, as I said before, I will be returning your money order.

While I thought it was rather odd that his initial e-mail was in my spam folder, I figured that hey, it's only a $50.00 sofa, so what's the harm?  Then when I received his last message asking me do all that, I figured out that something wasn't right.  Now, I hope he actually sends the money order so I can take it to Law Enforcement.  However, I don't like the fact that I revealed our home address though.

same deal, different day and email address for eddy44eddy@aol.com.  I received an email from ClevelandBrett57@swissmail.com about a craigslist posting but the reply to address was eddy44@aol.com.  Always check to see if there is a reply to address as that is a pretty good indication that things are not what they seem.

Got the email below regarding a couch I have for sale on craigslist; when I went to reply via email, I noticed that instead of it being sent to @brew-meister.com it would be going to "eddy55eddy@aol.com".  So I cancelled my response to him - anytime the addresses come up different, I know it's not a legitimate inquiry.  Googled both addresses and found this forum.

Though that was fishy so i googled it and this came up. He has not replied to my email yet but I flagged him via craigslist in the email.
I am from the midwest so he is reaching all over the place.
Weird that he only replies to couches.

Even after all the reports, he's still at it. Last week I received an email from kaccuratemoving@shaw.ca (eddy44eddy@aol.com), asking me if my sofa posted for sale on Craigslist was still available. I responded with one word: Yes. Today (8 days later), I received the following email from "Mr David" aka ruprecht53017@gmx.us aka eddy404eddy@aol.com. (I wonder how he keeps track of all of his alias-email addresses?)

Got the same email as everyone else trying to sell a bed frame. Didn't want to be so suspicious on the first email so I gave him my parent's address and name (because I am staying there home from college). I know better that to cash anything he sends  me, I actually told him that was an inappropriate request, but now I'm concerned that he has my mother's name and home address! Will he do anything with that information? :(

I sell stuff on Craigslist all the time and i get more of these scammers than real inquiries.
i love to play along and use up their time and energy.  my favorite thing to do is when they want a western union payment i make up a false number 9 digits instead of 10 and send them the 9 digit number  first and when they email back in a panic i tell them i am out of town now but will send it them in a few days.  after a few days i send a false number and see them freak out again.  they really do get upset, its funny.

also if they ask for a money order or money gram, they them you work for a place and you get free cashiers checks, so if he gives you a good address to send that instead you can send it immediately.  they might get greedy and give  you an address that might help them get caught.

i always try to screw with them and get real information.  i also call whomever the fake check is issued from and give them a heads up.

Got emails from eddy44eddy@aol.com and eddy404eddy@aol.com covered as ttbrad@selway.umt.edu -> University of Montana or odbey4@marshall.edu -> Marshall University, Huntington, West Virginia.
He wanted to by my sofa, too. I think he is part of the Nigeria Connection because one of the email Headers showed "X-Originating-IP: [197.255.23.16]" which in fact is Nigeria. But he also uses Germany, France, ...
I am planning to give the money order to the police to check for finger prints and handwriting.
Let's see how long it takes to get him.

Mr Russel

He then accepted my offer of $45 and wrote back:

Hello, we are fine with the price of $45 and ready to make payment asap. Are you ok with the mode of payment, if yes then make available a valid address or office address where we can send the Certified cashiers check to. Like i said in my previous email, we will only come for the pick up after the funds have been duly processed at your bank. Thanks

Like I said, my wife encouraged me not to be so suspicious, but he wouldn't answer my question on when he would send a truck to pick it up, and didn't call me either when I told him to. Must be very very careful, this "Eddy" guy is bad news.....

Same thing almost happened to me, same deal, same email.  Got the USPS money orders for $1200 more than the item I sold.  This time he used the name "Bratt Smith" out of TX.   I spoke to him on the phone @404.462.4202.  He had a strange foreign accent. Once I was on to the scam I called him back and left an innocent sounding voice mail that I could not get the funds to his buddy Freedle for a few days and could he call me back to be sure it was OK.   I never sent him the money, but now I have items clearing against the bogus deposit that will cost me bank fees.  The name on the FedEx envelope was Marti Merrick, also from TX.  The phone number on the envelope is a fax line, but it does appear she lives at the address shown on the FedEx.

I tried calling Smith again, but his voicemail box is full.  Most likely a throw-away phone anyway.  I have contacted the US Postal Inspector, no call back from them yet, FedEx, and my bank.  Now I have to deal with the bank on the fees and they are running a scam on the overdraft fees as well!  On top of all this I have been unemployed for quite some time and needed the money I was hoping to get for the piano I was selling.  Nothing but scumbags!
