    Yep. Classic CL scam.

    They probably have an apartment/house they can rent you too.

    Its a scam! We ran into about 10 of those scams on craigslist when we were looking for a truck. A few days after we got a,truck there was a story on the news about a woman getting ripped off on one of the trucks we emailed someone about. They claimed to be in the army and would sell a 2007 truck for $2700 with it packaged in a cargo shipping box. She never got her money back.

    Thanks [​IMG] DH wouldn't be very happy with me if I brought in outside help and didn't have him do it, even though he doesn't even like the chickens. I will keep it in mind, though [​IMG] I really do want them to have more shade - since this coop was built in the fall, I don't know how much they will have in the summer. The last one was an eyesore, but it was taller so it blocked more.

    Quote:Watch it Turkeybreeder! If they sell via "ebay" and allow western union for payment it's a scam! You will not actually find the vehicle on ebay if you search for it and they will take your money but not send a car. Always be careful if it sounds "too good to be true"!!!!

    Quote:I'm having some health issues and it's been a bit of a mystery. I'm going for more testing to see if they can figure it out. Hopefully they will get it figured out so I can get on a path to feeling better.

    Downsizing will make it easier to manage with all this fatigue.

    NoSkiveez, sorry to hear about the trouble! Maybe you are "just" getting old? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:What is really bad is that a lot of time their victims are elderly. When my daughter worked for First Credit Union she use to tell me very sad stories about elderly people who would come in and not understand how the bank would let someone take all their money. They are easy targets, I know many times my mother-in-law would tell us how someone would offer to to winterize her windows, paint her house etc. They always needed money up front as a good intention to pay, or to buy the supply's. Every time she handed them money, she never saw that person again. She was dishing out $300.00 to $800.00 at a time. For every victim there is 10 or more people willing to take advantage of you.

    Geez I wish my eyes could see straight before coffee that way I wouldn't have to edit.

    When I worked at a bank, the "big" scam was people would steal your outgoing mail, and sort it by bank, then wash the ink off, and rewrite the check to themselves (their fake ID name) and go cash them. They would have them organized by bank in big boxes and just go from bank to bank (drive through) and cash them. You always knew because they wrote in a felt tip and you could feel the ball point writing from the original writing. Now they just steal your check and instead of washing it ... they just order checks on your account and go all over town buying stuff. Nice!
