    This is the e-mail I just recieved from someone on craigslist about a couch I am selling. I am not sure what to make of this or if it is even real so I am asking opinions from BYC people on your thoughts and what you would do.


    Hi

    How are you doing today?. am Completely Satisfied with your advert.
    Hence it is still available ill instruct my secretary to make the check
    to Your full physical address,via UPS It will be delivered within 2-3 days i
    think, kindly delete the Post on craigslist...

    I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will
    be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up
    company to schedule an appropriate time for he pick-up at your
    location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be
    moved alongside with yours.

    Please get back to me with, Name to be on check and address with zip
    code..plus Mobile # to Contact you as well i want you to understand me
    that would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my
    work frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might
    want to have a good look.

    i look to read from you soon.

    This is SPAM!!

    Ignore the email and mark it as SPAM ~ DO NOT REPLY to it as then they will have your real email address and not the random one that they see on CL.

    Nope, that's a scam. The check won't be good and your bank won't return it until long after he has your couch.

    I was thinking scam to. I have not replied nor will I. That e-mail just seemed way to shady for me to want to deal with that person. Plus giving out a address or phone number. Who knows what I would be sent. Just didnt know if this could be an actual email or not.

    Typical scam. I've gotten a few of them when I've sold things on CL.

    Scam! Lately, everything I try to sell on CL has this junk come back.
    I have stopped selling there. Oh well.
