Ok ha! The person just answered the phone! 100% scam! Extreamly broken english, I could barely understand him, had no idea what material its made from, apparently he bought 2 but doesnt need one of them.. Sounded like he said it cost $1530 new... Payment through Walmart, because his wife is "a registered user".... wtf...

IMO-- Wal Mart is the new way to launder $$$. You can deposit cash and anybody Anywhere in the world can access it.
Nice way to get money to your family in Mexico or anywhere from what i hear.

The 1st giveaway that it is a scam is they ALWAYS use a "Gmail" address. THEY are all over Craigslist with their ****. It's VERY rare that you even got to talk to some one. I have never gotten that.

I got the same scam on my WTB post in the "Wanted" forum. It was a PM from user Mikeshore. Exact same response when I got the email from Robert in Texas.

He has been banned.
That is not saying he won't come back with a new identity/screen name at some point.
Everyone should be cautious when doing any type of deal with unknown people.
