    Ok maybe this is just me but, i recently put my old ps2 up on gumtree for sale and have had a few emails back about it, and once i replied back saying it was still available i recieved this message.

    Then after i had a email fro another person and also said it was still available and i recieved this.

    Maybe its just me but is this some sort of con?

    NEVER trust someone who uses the word "Nigeria" in his mails. Nigeria is scammers-paradise.

    Definitely a scam. I'm so sick of these emails every time I try to sell something on Craigslist. I just recently placed an ad for my MacBook and I got about 5-10 of these emails a day for about a week.
