Craigs List Scam (2015 Version!)

Another scammer, different email address (again, I received this exact same BS on 4 different items).

computer wasn’t working this morning ,can we set up a time for me to look at it. Just give me directions then i can locate the place . I’m going to work out,but if I hear before I leave, I could be there this evening or tomorrow morning. If not, would tomorrow night work. I teach piano so am flexible mornings and evenings. Will wait to hear. If gone, please leave message . Thanks

Considering the fact that I have nothing else to do other than play games with Craigs List scammers, I again decided to play along!

We can set up a time for you to look at the stereo and the other items you are interested in. Be aware, I am requiring cash for all purchases, no checks.

Ummm, again email addresses not the same and the email from “tara” has a male avatar. Last time I checked Tara was a female name.
