Who you callng old?...
Actually these are for stagered set up. I thought I could make them work, and I suppose I can with reworking the tails, but I rather not mess with it.
Also in the Swap section.

Not once "headers" are referenced in his note. Form letter?
Why the long winded reply? Are these f|_|k, heads just sending a virus when I reply?
WTF is a "Doctor of Philosophy in Aviation"
My ad explains everything. (IE, condition; > new)

its a scam for sure. And people do fall for it. What they want in the end is to send you a check for the amount plus shipping and you send a check back for the "extra" left over. Then they keep the money from your check and their check turns out fraud, even if its certified or money order etc. See this all the time on craigslist.

I am selling a boat and got exactly the same emails. Now that this one has been exposed, they may change up their email.
