Ricardo Rey Bogus Response to Craigslist Posting

I got 5 replys to my posting immediately after posting my item for sale.  They all used the same bad broken English, improper punctuation s  The giveaway is the improper use of the language. This was obvious to me but might not be to other people so it is my duty to notify others. Here is the last email he sent even after I told him to “F Off”. He thinks he will gain access to my checking acount and other private details. I already told him “cash only” In God We Trust-All Others Pay Cash. He didn’t get it and now says he is sending me $3,000.00 for a $900.00 price negotiable item. What the what? I hope this helps others. These are all bouncing through g-mail.
