I posted on craigslist to sell my ps3 for 200$. I only want to meet in person with firm cash. Today a dude texts me and wants to pay me 300$ as soon as I send him a PayPal invoice. When I demand to meet in person so that he can test my ps3 , he refuse. I smell something fishy so I continue the dialog for fun.

He told me this will be a gift for his girlfriend, who is out of the country , and I asked for the gf's address, he sent me a Nigerian address
