The Craigslist Scammer

My story goes like this…
Over the course of the past month my kids have upgraded their ipods and I picked up a newer used Nexus tablet.  So, I found myself with a pile of used electronic gadgets that needed to be turned into cash. Naturally, I turned to Craigslist and the Facebook for sale pages in my area. After successfully dumping four ipods and a Galaxy Tab2 I’m left with a pair of used phones still available. The first being an HTC Rezound + extended battery and an iPhone 4s both on Verizon. (Don’t worry, I’m not trying to sell em here. Rather, just laying out my story.) Twice now in less than two weeks I’ve been contacted by the same number. Both times wanting me to provide shipping information on my iPhone and then they’ll wire/PayPal funds. Umm… No! No thanks. I’m not about to play with a scam artist. At least not in the way they wish to play the game. Below are screen shots of this mornings text message conversation. I’m undecided at the moment on just exactly what games I will play with this individual. One possibility is to edit my listing to include a message with their number.
