Default Need Your Feedback Please!!!!

I have never experienced this before when I listed items on Craigslist but I wanted to get your feedback on this.
I posted an add for a 6" lift to an F250 and this was one of the replies I received from an interested party...

Hello,

Thanks for the response,like I said am highly interested in this
item,I will be glad if you could please withdraw the advert from
Craigslist as am totally committed in buying it . I will also like to
inform you that my mode of payment will be via Certified check .I will
need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate
the mailing of the check. It will be delivered by the United Parcel
Service within 2-3 days.Please note 'United Parcel Service' do not
deliver to P.O.Box addresses

1.Name to be on the check
2.Home address
3.Mobile #

I want you to understand that,I would have love to call but am a deaf
and only uses a hearing impaired relay phone.You will not be
responsible for shipping as I will instruct my shipper to come over
as soon as you have cashed the check.

Regards,


WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? - I think this is a SCAM!!!

Craiglist is full of these scams. Just trying to make you aware so you don't fall for one of these cons. You knew it was one any way or you wouldn't of asked. If you want to sell your nordic ..............I could send a check from the bank of kenya and............

that is one of the more obvious scams, there are many on craigslist.

This section should be required reading http://www.craigslist.org/about/scams.

I see more seller scams than buyer scams.

I prefer not to get in to a pissing contest with you - If I was sure about the reply I would have never made a post for "Feedback".

There are many ways to reply back that this was a SCAM but your so called tough love tactic doesn't set well with someone asking for feedback - again, thanks for your reply.
