Hey guys, I decided to sell a pair of Roland DS90 active studio monitors recently and figured I'd try Craigslist first since it's free. Within a day or so, I received 4 or 5 responses saying they wanted me to consider them sold and wanted to know if they were still available.
I replied back that I was waiting to meet w/the first responders and asked each for their general location (around Memphis). I received nearly identical replies w/this general format and all with first/last name gmail accounts like 'richking', 'akonedge', 'davewenzy'....One is below:
I am very sorry for my late response,I really appreciate your
response to my email.I want you to consider it sold, please do
withdraw the advert from craigslist to avoid disturbance from other
buyers.I want you to know that i will be paying via bank certified
check .I will like you to provide me with the following.information to
facilitate the mailing of the check to you .
1.....Full name to write on the check
2.....Full Physical address to post the check
3.....City, State and Zip Code
4.....Home & Cell Phone to contact you*** Note that the payment will
be shiped to your address via UPS NEXT DAYSERVICE and I will like you
to know that you will not be responsible for shipping i will have my
mover come over as soon as you have the check cashed** Thanks.Let me
know if i can trust you on this so we can move forward from here.
Sounds fishy to me and none mentioned anything about meeting in person. All replies returned the same which leads me to wonder if it's the same account. Why would someone try this w/monitors that are used anyway??
