Hey, I am selling a bike on Craigslist and I got a good bite from a guy. However, he says he doesn't have time to pick up the Bike himself, so he wants to mail me a check and after it clears, arrange for a delivery/moving service to pick up the bike from my location.
The guy's work schedule is the given reason he can't try out the bike in person. But, he seems to know about the model and agreed on my price.
I see no problem in taking a local area check and waiting for it to clear before he takes possession of the bike.
I told him it's a deal if he will email me his personal contact info. But, I don't think I am getting his personal info.
Has anyone run into this before? I'm used to PayPal, so tell me what you think!
UPDATE--I think this "pay first" scam is making it's way around Craigslist. Beware of emails offering asking price plus extra to reserve item. Also, my "buyer" worded his email in a similar fashion as some others I found on a blog about scams! Ok, I might have answered my own question! LOL
