Yeah most likey you are. I have a guy who kept doing that to my sled like "I will send my sipper to pick the item up" or they will give you a large number saying that you have to pay the shipper when he comes and stuff.

I had this happen to me on a motorcycle I was selling. The buyer asked me for a mailing address to send the check and when I received the check it was for $3000.00 more then the selling price of the bike. When I contacted them they told me it was for the inconvience I was put through. When I took the check to the bank they informed me the check was not only fake but the company name on the check closed their account over a year ago. The bank officer then contacted their fraud division who put me in contact with the FDIC and I am still getting calls from them for information. It is a scam don't deal with them. Contact Craig's list with their user name and they will look into other complaints and possible ban that user.. It won't stop these people from doing this but it will slow them down if they have to keep changing their user name....

Got the same thing happening to me right now quick. I have my Exciter II on Craigslist. I just respond with "Quit sending me your SCAM emails AFRICAN"! Most of these people and scams are from Africa I guess?!?!?

nigerian scams are abound on CL. after about 1200 emails or so and no bite from you they will eventually give up on you.
