I am playing with a guy right now... He said he wanted my item on CL and so it began.....
Actually it started by getting an email asking if the item was still available - it had only been listed a few hours...
I looked at the email address he used and went ahead and replied - thus exposing my email address - well one of many I have for different reasons..
Then he sent another email saying he was going to London for vacation and his assistant would take care of things...
The address and name I gave him was the sheriffs office and a fake name...
He shortly afterward said his assistant had sent too much money and was concerned that he would not get his money back - he asked if I would send the overage via western union and of course I told him I would..

Of course I will never see the fake money order but I will have some fun with him next time he emails me... Next time I will give out my real address and paper my work shop with the fake money orders.... OH I really do not think anybody will ever show up to collect their items ---- "Dr. Mossberg" is a very light sleeper !!!!
