I put up an ad trying to sell my old TV for $200. I said I would only accept cash. Here is his exact email:
Hello i really appreciate your response to my earlier mail.like i said
i will like to buy this item for the exact price, pls do withdraw the
ad from Craigslist. I will also like you to know that
i will be paying via check.I will need you to provide me with the
following information to facilitate the mailing of the check.
1.Your full name to be on the check
2.Home or work address
3.Your cell/phone number.
You will not be responsible for moving,i will have my mover come over
for the pick up as soon as you have cashed the check**
Have a nice day.
...end of email...
Him being the only person that has responded to my ad, Its either through him or I don't get anything for this thing. Also, any idea why he would put those two** at the end of check? I don't get it either.
