I had a similar one on Treasure Classifieds.  I kept stringing it along to see the cashiers check and turn it over to the Postal Inspection Service.   I think he smelled it out and quit emailing.

I had one just like this, just this week. I posted a wood stove for sale on Craigslist and get an email just like Johnny's, bad English and sentence structure too.

Fortunately I have been around the block a time or two and recognized it for what it was. I sent this reply by email which ended any further contact.

Avoiding Scams

Deal locally, face-to-face �follow this one rule and avoid 99% of scam attempts.
Do not extend payment to anyone you have not met in person.
Beware offers involving shipping - deal with locals you can meet in person.
Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - anyone who asks you to is a scammer.
Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.
Transactions are between users only, no third party provides a "guarantee".
Never give out financial info (bank account, social security, paypal account, etc).
Do not rent or purchase sight-unseen�that amazing "deal" may not exist.
Refuse background/credit checks until you have met landlord/employer in person.

Yes I've had that type of reply on Craigslist.  It's amazing what they'll come up with next.

whatever happened to good old fashioned handshakes in person sales transactions  and green cash, altho I see cashiers constantly checking even 10 and 20 dollar bills for fakes ?

Society just seems to be going straight downhill lately, dunno why ?

I almost got taken after receiving several emails from this website on a detector that I had mentioned in a post long ago but had yet to advertise,  until I questioned Steve, and he set me straight.

The guy wanted to pay with Paypal, $2,000,  but have somebody local pick it up. And he had never actually posted here before plus his language made it sound like one of them Nigerian con artist schemes. He swore up and down he was legit and an artist and had an FB page to prove it.

I told him to leave me alone.

I guess over the years selling items on here I got the gold mine. Just maybe one day I’ll get the shaft .

      How many of you have a non-human prospecting or detecting buddy? Dog, cat, burro, reconnaissance bird... whatever. Post a pic and tell us about them. Here is a chance to brag about our best friends!

      A few weeks ago I lost my Garrett Carrot AT when detecting down at a local river, I didn't realise it was lost until it was long gone, I tried for a couple of days to walk the same path to find it but never did so I decided I'd buy another one and some gadgets to prevent me losing it too.
      I have the standard belt holder for my Carrot but didn't like it, too high on my body for my Carrot to sit so it kept getting banged.
      I first tried my Minelab finds bag to look after it, it appears to have Carrot holders on the side of it but it doesn't fit well which makes it difficult to get in and out and has no clip for a lanyard. It sits really high on the bag too and gets in the way of my elbows.

      So I hunted around on Ebay and found a Chinese made finds bag for a good price and it had a clip and fits the Carrot much better, the bag has more features and better quality too

      I like it's drink bottle holder pouch. A zip up pocket for the important stuff and a big area for the junk with holes to let out the dirt.  It was about $15 USD delivered.
      Then I stumbled across bike torch mounts so I bought a few of them thinking I'll mount my carrot on my shaft 😀

      They worked fine but again, difficult to get it in and out but there was another model available that looked better.

      The top is firm rubber and lets you get the Carrot in and out easily and they're only about $1 USD each with free shipping to NZ.

      They hold stable and won't be lost like this, I don't notice the weight, some might...  I can use a torch in them for night detecting too if I wish.
      And the best news bit of this story, I found my original lost Carrot today down at the river while testing my new T2, it's in that photo on my Equinox shaft after I got it back... lucky it's waterproof as it's been through a lot of rain and snow.  
      If anyone has a better method of not losing a Pinpointer I'd be interested in hearing it.

      Hi People when you see other detectorists, how much distance should one give each other?  and 2nd question is, i have the minelab 15 pinpointer  but it really struggles unless its all most on the target, it was a free pinpointer that came with the 600. Do i buy the minelab 35 or another brand? thanks

      Being new to these forums, if this is not the place for this, please move. Due to excitement just wanted to sing out here.
      I am adding a Gold detector to my arsenal..  I did research this for quite a bit and realized that gold detecting, nuggets anyway, would only be maybe 1%, well maybe less, use of the machine. It would also be used for general detecting and a unit for friends that want to give it a try (it’s a easy to use detector.) But, I do want a capable detector the will work for gold also. Reading Steve’s review and rating of this detector, I'm pulling the the lever.
      For these reasons I have chosen a     Fisher Gold Bug Pro.
      Thanks for listening.  Joe

      Found this while scouting out another section of woods along a main trail. It's a Harvard Crimsons pin that was gold plated over brass.
      Also found a 61 silver Canadian quarter. Got excited at first until I whipped the dirt off the rim and saw it wasn't a really old USA coin :( . Also a musket ball and small round.
