Cruising Craig's and thought this was funny

$4800.00 cash only - NO stolen checks, counterfeit money or homemade credit cards will be accepted, also due to a previous ill-advised transaction via Nigerian funding, wire transfers will not be accepted either.
AND NO for the last time I will not accept either Ford Pinto's or Ford Mustang II's as collateral. What the heck are you people thinking?

I'm not in the market for a retail priced Theatre of Magic but I like this guy's style.

Everything ive posted on Craigslist I have had someone try ta scam me.
It always starts out with a really long, way to well written email.

So I don't trust anyone using proper grammar in their emails anymore.

It should be just: hey you gots that ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- for sale still? That I believe

Tell them to leave the money first  ;)

I once had someone wanting to buy my coffin guitar case for $75. They sent me a money order for $1000,
And saif oops I made a mistake, I will let you keep 200 if you send the rest back.

I actually had a guy leave payment and the key to his house under his doormat once while he was on vacation so I could deliver an arcade game. 

Damndest thing.  The envelope said something on it like, "Steve, make sure you leave $200 in here for James." 

I took my money, went inside his house, opened his garage, unloaded the game in there, locked up and left.

All I can say is that was an era when gas was cheap and nobody had Paypal.  Never heard a word from that guy again.  I'm still shocked someone would be that trusting and still shocked I drove 125 miles each way to deliver a game without payment up front.
