Within posting my wheelset for sale for less than 6 hours I got my first scam.
Here is the message i got...

Hello, I came accros your ad and i am really intreted in geting it. So i will want you to pls email me if it is still available. And also tell me its present condition.Also send me the pics if it is available and give me your last price.Also i will want you to know that my mode of payment is with a certified chasiers check which i believe is the best way of payment. If you are ok with that you can get back to me so that we can conclude on payment. Regard

Hmmmm...he doesnt say his name...give me a phone number...even asks about the present condition of the product even when I clearly state it;s in perfect condition in my ad...

Should I email him a response talking about his mother?

Better yet, don't email him at all. Sounds shady.

Run away, run away..............

I have recieved the same e-mail almost word for word for a couple of items I had posted in the classifieds. I figured something was up when I recieved the same message from two different e-mail addresses that were both interested in the same item I had for sale. They even had the same misspelled words in the text. I wouldn't even bother e-mailing back.
