Re: the Craigslist 27" iMac $550

Hi,

I'm Matthew, you've contacted me on Craigslist about the 27" iMac I'm selling.
I have attached some photos with it to this email.
It's a 2015 purchase. It's a promotion gift from work but I don't need it.

But I have some bad news, I am now in Toronto, Canada. I hope we can still make the sale.
I have found a company called Yes To Delivery that will deliver the Mac to you in the US and allow you to check the Mac before I receive the payment. You will be in control of your money and I will be in control of my Mac.
I will use 2 day delivery and I will take care of the shipping fee.
Please have a look at their procedure and we will go from there.

Dan, I've checked and COD doesn't work outside the country. I would have loved to use FedEx or UPS directly as well.
So, can we do this via Yes To Delivery?

Scam… yes to delivery scam site requiring wired funds (British Virgin Islands), TravelDan a scam site with email server, email address and name fraud.

She was a private seller on Craigslist. She stated that she was being deployed and needed to sell her van. It was a great price at that would pay it by MoneyGram and then the car get shipped to us within 5 days you can look at it and then get the money back to us so I agreed upon it I received an email from Amazon with a tracking number and it looks totally legit did when it stated on the email as well as I called and I spoke to the rep that was on the phone number that was listed he confirms what exactly of the seller were saying and what's the email saying. So I went and did that and pay the money gram then I received an email stating that they needed an additional $1,700 for shipping insurance on my side and then it would be refunded at the time of delivery I should have went and I went against my better judgement and I said that if that amount as well it was supposed to be delivered today I called the number and the person that answer the phone his name is supposedly Michael asked if I had made the second payment I advised him that I had he disconnected the call and is not answering it again and the seller is not answering her emails as well as the cell phone number I contacted her on that was listed and I text her about I just don't want this to happen to someone else.
