    Craigslist scam... or is it scam-ola?

    Who posted about the table saw (?) for sale on craigslist? It was quite a while ago. Mawby trucking dropped the ball when their truck went through the ice. I almost got to be an insurance adjuster? Remember? Search returns me nothing.

    I think Girl is getting scammed on a dryer she's trying to sell.

    Anyone up for another game? Tex? Dr. Branson? Anyone?

    Judey,
    Count me in, the last time was too much fun. When Clancy told the guy he had taped the extra funds to the saw and then Tex went through the ice was priceless.

    The last one should have been placed on the top shelf of a Caferacer.net's all time greatest threads vault.

    Original ad:

    http://annarbor.craigslist.org/app/1326818742.html

    or:

    Like new LG electric clothes dryer. Has all the bells & whistles. This is the Cadillac of dryers. Purchased new in Feb '07. This dryer comes with a 5 yr warranty & transferable extended warranty. This means when you buy this dryer, it will be under warranty for another 10 years!!! I have the owner's manual, and a couple minor accessories that go with it. I paid $800 for this dryer in Feb 2007. $400 is a steal. You honestly cannot buy this dryer in this condition for anywhere near this incredibly low low low price. I love this dryer & the only reason I'm selling it is because my new house has gas dryer hookup and it would be too expensive to run electricity to my 2nd floor laundry room.

    Buy this dryer. You won't be disappointed.


    Scammer:
    Do you still have this available ?

    Girl:
    Yes - it is still available. Let me know if you are interested in looking at it. Call me at ***-***-**** if you would like to make arrangements.

    Scammer:
    Hello,
    Thanks for getting back to me, and am okay with the price and the
    condition and i will like to make an outright purchase of this
    particular item immediately because i noticed that you are serious
    seller, i anticipate that a cashier check or certified check will be
    sent to you via express mail or ups as the mode of payment, concerning
    the pick up, i will be responsible for that, where my mover will come
    for the pick up at your location upon your confirmation of receiving
    the payment and i want you to remove this item from the ad..So i will
    send the payment which will include the pick up charges in which you
    will make payable to the mover immediately you receive the payment to
    avoid the delay. Also i have other packages they will be picking for
    me around your location which i will like the to pick up with your
    item, would really love to come for the viewing but due to my work
    frame and the family issue for the year that might not be possible and
    i will like you to provide the information below so that the payment
    will be done as soon as possible:-
    1.......Full Name
    2.......Full Home Address
    3.......City, State & Zip code
    4.......Tel#
    As soon as this is provided i will let you know when payment is mailed
    out and i will update you on when you will receive the payment, and
    give you instructions on what to do..I hope we handle this in good
    faith..
    Thanks while waiting to hear from you


    We've given him no reply yet, but have passed it on to police. I know they can do nothing...

    Any suggestions how to reply to this ass?

    They probably already have a credit card application filled out in her name waiting to go.

    I set up an email and put all of my spamers in there. then once or twice a day i tell them all how big of asses they are and i wish the worst on them. it helps me vent my frustration.

    Judey,
    Get the ball rolling. I think I may have some items that will need to be shipped via Mawby Air Forward.
