-- Is the item available?


I reply:
Yes this is still available.

To which I recieve:
Hello,Thanks for the prompt response. I will add $50 to the asking price forbest offer.. i will instruct my boss to mail out(overnight) certifiedcheck that could be cashed in any cashing stores and any destinatedbanks for quick payment,while you hold on my behalf. Once you receivethis, my mover will arrange for pick up at your locale. I will beneeding the following information to issue out the payment... *1.Your full name to be on the check.2.Your full address not P.O.Box for quick delivery.3.Zip code4.Your mobile phone number *Please note that the payment will be overnight to your address and itwill be delivered within 2 days.I have taken a close look at the ADand am satisfied.I appreciate you keeping the item for me.Kindlydelete the posting as i am definitely buying it from you and it wouldbe sad for me to have the payment in the mail only to be informed ofit's sold.I will also wait for the check to clear before i have mymover come for the pick up. Best regards

I send back:
I am surprised people still fall prey to scam artist like you.

Have a good day sir.
I will not be selling my TV to you.

Thanks

then, I start having some fun:
When are you coming to get the TV?

Thank you for your prompt action on this matter.

he replies back:
As soon as the check clears, my shipper will come for the pickup.

Then:
I apologize , this is for local pickup only.
I will not deal with your shippers.
You have to pick up the TV in person.
Bring a big truck because the TV is big.

It dont matter if it dont work now does it?

Write me back asap please.
I got a blind guy who might want to buy it. ( the sound still works so I think I might be good!)


Let me know

I am waiting to hear back from him....

I prefer to resond thusly:

"Sir:

I have entertained your most generous offer, but now is my counter-offer. Instead of a check, please send your oldest virgin daughter. I will have an expert examine the daughter to certify that she is indeed a true virgin. If not, I shall send her head back to you via Federal Express. Please forward pictures of daughter, if she is ugly or underage I shall send the pictures back smeared with hog feces and the deal is off.

Looking forward to doing business with you"
