Thanks for your prompt e-mail, i want you to get back to me with more picture and is there any other issues with it not mentioned on Craigslist.Am satisfied with your advert price, as am requesting this transaction should be done via PayPal so the PayPal charges is on me,If my offer is accepted send me your PayPal email and your name including your phone# or send me paypal invoice so i can pay you right away.I am busy at work and do not have much time around me, but no worries as i am willing to handle the picked of this merchandise through my legitimate mover agent cause i will like it to be picked at your residence location,Make sure you get back to me immediately, So no ShippingRegards
Now, since I've already been through this once, I figure it's time to escalate. I send back:
Rather than screwing around with mover agents and all the rest, please send me your Paypal address so that I may send you a PayPal bill and bill your account directly. You see, I've recently dealt with some really shady people who think that they deserve another person's hard-earned money without really coming forward with the goods/services that they requested. So, in an effort to work with only honest people, which you obviously are, given that you're so busy with work, I'd prefer to work directly through Paypal, rather than any other process.
I'll even throw in free delivery to within 50 miles of my location if you follow this process.
Now to sit back and wait for the amusement.
