The wild roses are blooming everywhere–Montana native folks tell me this means high water is over. Judging by the river flow, the Cowboy thinks it means the water won’t get any higher!!
We use Craigslist extensively when either buying or selling. During this recent “stuff” purge we’ve listed almost everything on Craigslist and had great luck! Unfortunately those idiots with nothing to do are still out there. When selling an item on Craigslist you can elect to allow the seller contact via phone, text or email. Your email address is not actually published, it is encrypted by Craigslist so the person contacting you has no access to your email address.
The scammers are always out there–frequently we receive emails asking “is your item still available?” Sometimes just minutes after the ad goes live. IF you answer that email then the fun begins. You will usually receive another email which goes something like this (spelling errors are intentional):
“I am seriusly wanting to buy your itme. I have problem I am not there if you will give me email address I will send you cashir chek”—–and it goes on and on. When we receive these emails I have the almost uncontrollable urge to fire back an email which states, “fat chance jerk!!!” but I restrain myself! 🙂
We don’t respond to these emails, we just delete, period. Today while the Cowboy was scrolling through Craigslist, he started to chuckle. This scammer is way lacking in intelligence!!! Can you find all the mistakes he made in his ad not including the too good to be believed price???
