    1. We got the exact same message. However, he sent an additional e-mail which really made us suspicious:

      Hello,

      I hope you are fine and alright. I have been busy myself but doing great. There is something i think i must bring to your notice. After a reconciliation of my account, i discovered that somehow my assistant must have over paid you. The payment that was meant for another transaction was sent to you and the one meant for you was sent to another; however i want to believe i won’t have a problem with you.

      Please once you receive your payment, i will like you to deduct your money and send the remaining via western union to the manager of the shipping company that will help me with the pick-up. I will ask them to contact you as soon as possible, Let me know if this is ok with you. Please contact me as soon as you get your payment.

      Warm regards.

  1. I got the same message too. In addition when I took my listing off of craig’s list he wrote further saying:

    TO STEEL PEOPLE’S MONEY!

    BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE. This sounded too funny to me so I decided to look up his name and account. The account he used with me is: Smith Gill smith74893939939@yahoo.com

  2. Same thing happened to me!!!! I even gave him my address and he sent this message, “Hello thank for the information,please i just contacted the post office and they admits to the delay to be their faults, but they plead y to me on your behave that they would soon deliver it in your mail in the next few day, please let be little bit be patient with them.”

    WATCH OUT FOR THIS PERSON – i do not feel safe on Craigslist any longer! He emailed me from the following address: smith74893939939@yahoo.com

  3. I got it too. Came from Smith Gill and message only said “I’m interested in buying” with no other details.

  4. This is a classic Nigerian email scam. They use this rouse to accomplish several tasks. One is if you do in fact sell to them, the credit card numbers used are stolen or the money orders are fake. Then the entire arrangement all the way to shipping is accomplished through stolen credit cards. The other item of business and most common for these guys with this scam is to obtain as much info about you as possible in order to appear legit in future scams. When you reply with your name or phone number, an address etc…they are able to provide this information to prospective victims in order to look legit. They will take your name and make a new email address in order to throw off potential victims as well. My wife just posted an item for sale and began receiving email from this guy “Smith Gill <smith67890009865@yahoo.com" ha ha, too bad for him… I am a Fed and have been on task force for one year dealing with this very issue busting these guys over and over… looks like I have a new case.

  5. I received the same email on September 14th from Smith Gill indicating he wanted to purchase my posted item right away and will even pay an extra $50. When payment not received/delayed, I wrote to say no longer going forward. He then sent the alert email asking to be patient and that his assistant sent the wrong payment and ask for my patience.

    Don’t trust this person!

  7. Here’s the email I received from this person (Smith Gill (gill67578788@yahoo.com). Luckily I knew it was a scam immediately:

  8. Got email today from Smith Gill at gill07079797898@yahoo.com. After posting an ad on CL for my couch, he wrote “Available for sale? would love to buy it right away.’

    He then sent the following email when I said it was available:

    “Thanks for the response.I am willing to pay your asking price.I will pay by a money order as its the only way i can pay you at the moment.I will make arrangement for the pickup after payment have been received by you.I don’t mind adding an extra $50 so you can keep it in my favor.I would have loved to come take a look at it but i am presently out of town,send me some pictures.Reply with your name,phone # and mailing address where payment will be sent.I will let you know how i intend to pick it up.Please take the posting off craigslist today and consider it sold to me.
    Expecting to hear from you soon.
    Regards.”

    I wrote him back and told him I knew it was a scam and that I would report to CL.

  9. I am okay with the price of this item and the condition of items and
    i will like to make an outright purchase of this particular item
    immediately because i am in need of it and i want to get it as soon as
    possible, I anticipate that a cashier check or certified check will
    be sent to you via express mail or ups or Fedex as the mode of
    payment, concerning the pickup, i will be responsible for that, where
    the mover will come for the pick up at your location upon your
    confirmation of receiving the payment and i want you to remove this
    item from the ad now. So i will send the payment which will include
    the pick up charges, in which you will make payable to the mover via
    money gramm/western union immediately after you have receive the
    payment and you will be compensated with $50 extra for your running
    around to the money gram/western union outlet to avoid the delay. And
    I would really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame
    that might not be possible……..and I will like you to provide the
    following payment information as soon as possible;

    full name ………………………..
    full home address (physical)………………
    City…………………………………………
    state…………………………………………
    zip code……………………………………….
    tel#…………………………………………..

    As soon as this is provided i will let you know when payment is mailed
    out and i will update you on when you will receive the payment and
    give you instructions on what to do….thanks and i hope we handle
    this in good faith.

    Thanks.

  10. Got the same thing but from an Aaron Karen. Funny thing is in his second email he signed Smith Gill, and I asked if his name was Smith or Aaron. Probably had written so many emails he made a mistake. Needless to say he did not respond.
