Thanks for your response. I'm willing to pay your asking price and I'll be paying with a Check or Money Order which you should receive within 5 - 7 business days. As per pick-up, I will take care of that after you received and cashed the Check or Money Order. I'll also offer you an extra $30 so that you can keep it in my favor. I'm going to London on vacation so my assistant will issue and mail out your payment to you once you email me your full name,phone number and contact address. I would really appreciate if you take the posting off craigslist today and consider it sold to me. We'll proceed on the pick-up once the payment is delivered to you.I look forward to your full name and address for the payment.
Thanks

Take it to the local police and tell them you think it is a forgery. Take along copies of the emails so that you can explain how and why you got the check. And DO NOT try and negotiate that check anywhere.

I got an email from this person wanting to buy something off Craigslist. Said he would send a money order, and that he hasd to take a trip to London but would get the item upon his return. So I Googled his email address and this popped up. I sent him a message back telling him that I was going to report him and he need not try to scam me. Geez!

Warning about the "assistant"

We got an email from this address in the afternoon [zesdsfdgdvfgfn@gmail.com]

It was followed up later with the exact craigslist purchase request mentioned above. This scam is still operating and they haven't even changed the email!

Ditto

Got the same reply today on a craigslist item I posted. First was a crazy gmail account (dgdfd8765@gmail.com) followed by another reply from: [travistewart@jktevaluation.org] (clue #1 something was not right). They are not very creative. The verbiage in the second reply smacked of a user with a poor grasp on English sentence structure, (clue #2). The offer for an extra $20 to hold it was fishy (clue #3).

Here's the whole message:
Hi,
I'm glad it's still for sale. I'm going on a vacation to London but I
will instruct my assistant to prepare and mail you your payment which
I'm sure you will get it in about 5 - 7 business days. I'll add $20
extra for the delay. Money Order is the means I can pay you with. If
this is acceptable by you, Send me your info i.e full name, mailing
address and your phone number so payment can be mail out immediately.I
will also make arrangement for pick-up which will be after you must
have received and cashed the Money Order..
Awaiting your info
Thanks

Glad I googled that second email address to confirm what I suspected.

craiglist scammer

sent 2 emails the first one as brunosea <scottdavey375@gmail.com and the second one as [davey@jktevaluation.org]

This is what it said
Hi,
I would have just come over to pay and pick it up, But I'm going on a
trip. Therefore, I will instruct my Secretary to prepare and mail you
a Money Order and I assure you will get it within a week. An extra $20
will be added for the delay. So all you have to do now is to email me
your FULL NAME, MAILING ADDRESS and PHONE NUMBER. The pick-up will be
effected after you must have received the payment. I will be waiting
to read from you.
Thanks

As you see you can tell this has been pre-written because it never said what I had to sale they describe the item as it and they had my phone # and never
called if i wanted to buy something first thing i would do is call the sellers #
