immediately, deduct the money that accrues to you cost of this Item
and take a compensation of $50 for stress making you go through, and
you will send the rest balance to the Head Office of the company that
handles the shipment via the nearest Western Union agent in your area.
Deduct the Western Union charges from the balance and send the
remaining immediately .

The Bull:dung: never stops!!!;)
 
so, he will send a bad check for you to cash on your account and you then send him most of it . This works until the check bounces and the bank deducts said amount from your account.
Have I got this right??
A fool and his money were lucky to get together in the first place.:laugh:
 
Wasn't through CL, but I have a $4000 "cashier's check" from a supposed buyer for some of the wife's artwork. The whole thing looked reasonable until the "check" came in a plain envelope with no return address, and was for $4000 instead of the $800 sale price. The 'check' looks legitimate, and was drawn on a major bank. Suspecting a scam, I took it in to our local bank to check it out. They made some calls, and though they wouldn't out right say it was phony, they said there were "issues", and recommended I report it to the FBI and Treasury Dept Secret Service. I did, and got a little surprise. They said, since I had not shipped anything, no charges could be filed! That's like saying a guy who walks into a bank and demands their cash can't be charged unless they give it to him.
Anyway, I've still got the check as a reminder.
 
I once inquired about a too-good-too-be-true CJ on craigslist. Ex wife dumping the CJ that was part of a settlement (you know the type).

Wish I still had the Email, but my request for a test drive was replied to with a letter like Pete's virtually confirming the sale and delivery. I just added the person to my block list. Sadly, as previously stated, these things work all the time.

Scum bags...
