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

I “sold” a expensive item on FleaBay and was asked to premail it to a Western Union store for preinspection before their payment was made.  They provided an address.  I sent them a return email saying

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.

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 follow the old Golden Rule, if it sounds to good to be true, it most likely is. Stay Away ...................

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.

      When going on a hunt do you take 2 different gold detectors or stick just to the big guns?
      This last season with Covid and all, I was more fortunate to be out in the field.  On one of my trips to Oregon a Staff Member and I were eager to swing our GPZ's over some ground that held gold.  After about 2 hours of digging iron bits and old lead bullets, I decided the extra depth of the 7000 (overkill) was not proficient for this sites and hiked back to the truck to get the NOX... and what a smart decision it was.
      Lighter, faster, better target ID (I like the way it - NOX talks to me) and when I hiked back down the hill to the exact same piece of ground my ZED was having issues, the 1st target I dug was gold.
      Knowing capabilities of my detectors and when to make change is very important.  But as I meet so many folks that want to be nugget hunters, I see a good % of them are only taking 1 detector for a trip.  I realize if you have a Big Gun then maybe some of you feel it's best for all gold and or hunts and the little VLF types have no use.  Most folks (not all) started out with VLF technology detectors and then evolve to a PI or ZED, but do you keep the VLF at home?  Why do so many people I run into in the field only have 1 unit with them?
      This pretty yellow piece is probably the last nugget found in Oregon with my EQ800 and I'm most certain it would not be in my collection if I only had the 7000 on that trip.  Knowing when to make a change is very important and sometimes rewarding.
      Are you a 1 and done hunter or prefer to take #2 as a back up to the plan.

      I went to my local fresh water beach witch I have been to countless times.
      I got a very strong hit on my TDI BH gb off, I chased and came up with a 3 1/2 inch hair pin.
      A few feet away I got the same hit I pinpointed it took 1 shallow scoop it was still there I took a deeper 2nd scoop deeper than I thought
      the target was, still there and centered in the hole with the X on it. If this was a surface coin I would have got it.
      I have a good hunch that this another hair pin, so I took a shallow scoop to the left of my hole and there it was a large hair pin lying there.
      The pin was 6 to 8 inches off to the side of where I was pinpointing it. I have been detecting since the late 70s so not new at it.
              Y     do long narrow targets detect off to the side not on top of them ???

      We’re heading over to the Hauser beds (near Blythe, CA)  this week (11/25/20), has anyone been there recently? Any suggestions on good locations? 😁 I’ll post a collecting trip report with recommendations when we return. Thanks!

      I bought a Nokta Makro Pulse Dive, but I won't snorkel, I need to buy goggles and snorkel, what else? I have no experience, but I am willing to work hard to learn, only by using Pulse Dive can I avoid crowds, and that is, what kind of bag to use in the water to reduce drag to collect!

      I am in the process of making a Lipo GPX battery, Can someone who has made one verify this is the correct pin outs?

      also, what is the recommended brand/type of Lipo battery, so many models to choose from.
      If anyone has made one and is willing to share photos of what they did and how they did it that'd be great.  I intend to make one with a 3D printed housing with built in amplifier and speaker.
      A friend has started to make his own, he's on a roll so far, he's incorporated a built in amplifier that he made as he's added a 3W speaker into the housing, he's also going to put in a 1/4" socket for headphones/external amplified speakers that bypasses the little built in amp, that is there to drive the internal speaker so the battery can be attached to the side of the GPX and add a built in amplified speaker which the GPX is missing, why they don't put speakers on their gold machines I don't know.

      It also has volume control for the built in speaker.  It's coming along.   I'm not yet sure what mine is going to be like.  It should fit in his existing side pouch as he's making it a reasonable size but it won't weigh much.

      Hello metalheads! I’m helping to put together the upcoming 2020 Kellyco Metal Detectors Holiday Gift Guide. Now, I’m not here to plug my site or ask you to look at anything on it (but you can look at last year’s list here if you like). I’d just like to know which gear you think belongs on this year’s list.
      Are there any new detectors, pinpointers, or other paraphernalia you’ve used recently that you think would make good gift for a novice or seasoned enthusiast? Even if we don’t carry it already – heck, especially if we don’t carry it already – I’m eager to know your thoughts!
