    Default Funniest Craigslist Scam Email EVER!

    I just got this email from a scammer responding to an ad I placed on craigs list. The title of the ad was "WTB - SAXOPHONE OTHER BAND INSTRUMENTS - CLARINET TRUMPET TROMBONE". I don't even get the point of the scam, but the wording sure is funny...

    Hello

    had been you nevertheless seeking for a WTB - SAXOPHONE OTHER BAND INSTRUMENTS - CLARINET TRUMPET TROMBONE noticed you posted on craigslist searching for a single in wi.

    I just purchased a new WTB - SAXOPHONE OTHER BAND INSTRUMENTS - CLARINET TRUMPET TROMBONE and was likely to throw my old one particular away. In case you live close to me in wi
    you could allways occur and gather it. I am not looking for any revenue for it as I was going to toss my WTB - SAXOPHONE OTHER BAND INSTRUMENTS - CLARINET TRUMPET TROMBONE within the trash.
    email me again and allow me know.

    Yeah...pretty good sign that it's a scam if he says he was going to toss his WTB - SAXOPHONE OTHER BAND INSTRUMENTS - CLARINET TRUMPET TROMBONE within the trash instead of making a lamp out of it like most normal people would.

    They're simply seeking valid email addresses, which they'll get if you write them back.
