the money to be credited to ,please include your email address in your
reply for effective contact and,i will be glad if you can end auction
for the item immediately to confirm to me your readiness to sell the
product to me.You can reach me via my E-mail address (LINDACONDA@

They are responding to an ad I placed to sell a laptop, the price of the laptop was $100. Why would anyone offer to pay more than twice that much, and without even looking at the item. Beware of scams like this, there are tons of them in Craiglist.
