Email Address: and
We listed a piano for sale, this scammer has texted 3 times from 917-719-6160 and has emailed from and, trying to get our best price and agree to receive payment by paypal and have his agent pick it up, but I researched and found the same addresses and method, in which the scammer reports a problem with the agent and he tries to tempt the seller with additional money to complete the transaction.
Follow Ups/Extra Information. Most recent is listed first.
Posted motorcycle to Craigslist - individual contacted me via text and laid out the same thing - buying for son as gift and an agent would pick it up and would handle title work upon arrival. Wanted paypal id to submit payment but would not give any details about "agent" or address/contact information for him/her self.

I was selling a 100+ old wood barn on Craig's List. Received several texts from main text reads: "am buying it for my son as a surprise gift and i wont be able to see this myself but i have mover that will come for the pick up once the payment has been made and completed so do get back to me with this details. 1) Are you the Owner? 2) Pick up Location? 3) what is the final Price 4) your paypal email id"
I asked him for his email address so that I could sent him a release of liability form to complete prior to completing the sale. Once the individual provided me with their email, that is when i decided to do a little research prior to moving forward with the sale and found this website with a reported scam so I am adding to the scam list to hopefully warn others regarding this individual.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
