I've replied to 2 craigslist ads for laptops, say they're in duluth in the ad and then you get this song and dance about how they ended up in the UK, but the warrantee is good in the US. I just got a reply from one today:
The laptop is still available and I hope you are still interested. My name is Linda Hamilton and I am now in Manchester, U.K. This machine has been used for professional needs over the past year, it is in great condition and runs perfectly, and beyond evidence of normal use there is only a small cosmetic blemish on the side which is shown in one of the pics. The warranty is fully transferable. One more thing, it works on US voltage so you do not need a converter. I have attached some pics with the laptop to this e-mail so you can see the condition of the laptop. Please get back to me and let me know if you like the laptop if you're really interested in buying it.
The best part is the email is almost word for word like one I replied to. The listing has disappeared from craigslist. Sounds like shawn has been there.
eek, RUN! Its either a scam, or the camera is stolen and the guy is trying to dump it off asap. Or then again, it could be an ex-spouse trying to "get even". I dont know how many times I saw that happen in Florida.
Hi, First of all I want to apologize for this late reply but I was not able to reach to a computer because I had some problems that I had to take care of. I'm located in the United Kingdom. We could use a third party to work between us for safety. I have found a way complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the camera in less than 2 days, if you move fast as well. The solution is provided by a company called TNT which is very similar to Fedex, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of the camera, that will allow you to pay for the camera only after you will receive it and through this way you will see it and test it before I receive the money. Like I said, I will pay for a 2 days delivery so you will receive the camera right away.With the camera will also come two flashes, a tripod and four lenses: 24mm AF D F2.8 Lens 60mm AF D Mico F2.8 Lens 35-70mm AF D F2.8 Lens 80 - 200 AF ED F2.8 Lens If you are interested please let me know. Thanks
