Type of a scam Online Purchase
I received the following email in response to my Craigslist ad. I told her that I wasn’t interested in pursuing the transaction.
Thanks for responding to my email. Craigslist can be very frustrating when emails through their reply system don’t deliver most times. You asking price is good for me, I only wanted to be sure it wasn’t going higher. My intention is to buy this for someone as a surprise. I can’t come to see or inspect in person because I serve in the U.S Army as a Field Artillery Surveyor/Meteorological Crewmember (13T) currently on active duty. Email is the only way I can communicate with you at the moment, strictly no calls for security reasons.
This is the second time I’m making a purchase like this on craigslist and I hope we can complete this sale smoothly. Do you have any more pictures to show me?
I also need you to understand that I will be making payment with paypal reasons are it’s my only payment option for now and its a trustworthy form of making payments online. Do you have an account? If not you can set it up easily at paypal .com. It takes just 5minutes to get the account. If you consider my offer, you can pause or stop any negotiation and let make this a quick sale. We can make arrangements for pick up after you have received payment in full. Thanks for understanding and hope to read from you soon.
