 Classified ads scammer

smith001  contacted me about a classified ad I posted and was very suspicious in his email. He obviously did not even view the post because all of his questions were answered in the description. he wanted to use cashiers check and wire the shipping money. This is just like the craigslist scams that were going around. BEWARE

heres copies of the emails:

Hello, I came across your ad and I'll like to know the following questions regarding the ad. Q#1. How long have you owned it? Q#2. a) Have you owned it from new? b) If not how many previous owner? Q#3. Why are you selling it? Q#4. In your opinion, what sort of condition is it? Q#5. Any available photo? Q#6. How much are you asking for it? Q#7. Do you accept a Cashier Check as a mode of payment. I'll like to have the response to these question in your earliest convenience. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello,
Thanks for the fast response towards this transaction,I'm okay with the asking price and the present conditions of it and i want you to note that i will be paying with a certified cashiers check and the payment that will be sent to you will include the shipper's fee which mean's you don't have to bother yourself on the shipping and immediately you receive the payment you will cash the payment and deduct your item fee and get the shipping cost wired via western union or money gram to the shipper's information that will be sent to you and if you are okay with this terms kindly get back to me with the Name,Address and your contact telephone number so that the payment can be issued out to you as soon as possible.
Hope to read from you soon...
Regards...

did you tell him you prefer that he pay with Paypal instead??  cashier's check is riskier...sounds like a scam on those dating sites where scammers would have treasury checks mailed to you so that you cash them, then send the cash through western union...the "girl" and western union agent were usually in on it leaving you to answer to the FBI for cashing bogus checks..

yeah, I told him either pay with paypal or forget it , I had the exact same email from another user yesterday. Obviously there are scammers on here too, it's unfortunate but people should know. If someone asks you questions that are already answered in the description (like price, condition, etc.) and they refer to what you have for sale as "your item" and don't ever actually mention what "it" is then just be careful. these scammers are on every classified listing site it seems.

no offense towards foreign people or anyone who speaks broken english, but it seems like any of these potential scams I've been subject to are obviously written by a foreigner with broken english.  Here are actual examples of what i'm talking about in bold and underlined, notice the verbiage and how he never speaks of what is actually for sale.

I like to play with these scammers.  I tell them yeah I'll accept the cashiers check, and then they'll FedEx it overnight to my house.  I'll email them saying I never got it...and they'll overnight another one.  I do this about 3 or 4 times.  Lets see...they've sent checks to Hugh Jass, Ivana Humpalot, Harry Balls...the list goes on and on.  I find comfort in knowing that these scamming pieces of #@^% had to come out of pocket to overnight the checks to me.  It feels good to scam a scammer.  I even had one scammer send me a fake email from the FBI telling me he reported me...had a good laugh at the one.
