    Today i posted an ad on CL selling my laptop cuz i really need the money. Selling it for 150. got several calls from local people around the area. but got this one email from this guy from Nigeria who offered 220 plus shipping for me to send it to him there (cant help but to think Nigerian scammers). I just dont wanna get fuked by paypal as i've heard many stories of buyers doing charges and sellers losing their product and money. so should i send it?

    O okay so you are asking $150 for your laptop and someone is offering you $220. They also live in Nigeria, and you found them off Craigslist. If that doesn't spell LEGIT then I don't know what does. :rolleyes:

    And you're 100% serious about this thread too? Why in the world would anyone be searching on CL looking for a f'ing laptop when they live in another country?

    Actually have fun with the scammers, I had one to send me their fake check once, the funny thing is that he mailed it to the white house under the name of Joe Biden.

    Send it to me and I'll give you $5. That's $5 more then you'll otherwise get if you do this...

    what is the specs of your laptop? because i am looking for one. But i am not US, from Philippines.. Let me know if you are interested..

    But about the nigerian thing, if you are worried, maybe you can just sell your laptop to one in you locality, just to be sure.. :)

    lol @ this one guy from Nigeria, what are the odds.
    the inflating of the price alone is a dead giveaway, it's actually the only reason you want to even bother questioning your common sense:

    Just go down to the closest laundry mat and place a piece of paper with tear off strips with your phone number on them saying your selling the laptop. Some lower income people would be interested in buying a used one.

    Yup. And don't ever do anything with a Nigerian - seriously.
