Sorry there has been a little change of plan , I was in the town to celebrate a House warming party , but i wont be able to meet with you any longer because i left town already.

However , I'm ready to issue out a Certified Bank Check via Postal service Express mail or UPS overnight delivery because am ok with the condition as seen on the advert as well as the price stated. It's my first time on Craigslist but i believe everything will work out fine. I'll arrange for a local pick up once you receive check, cashed it and have your money with you.I will appreciate it if you get back to me with your Full Name,Full mailing Address with the zip code,Cell
Phone Number and Agreed price.

More so i don't mind to pay you additional $30 to withdraw the advert for so you can know am ready to buy asap.If you are selling it to me,do get back to me with your Full name to be on payment , Full mailing Address,Cell Phone Number and Agreed price. to mail out the check immediately via Postal service Express mail or UPS overnight delivery..

Trying to sell us camper for $2500

text # from craigslist. They in turn text me that her camper was sold but her friend (Sarah) has camper for sale and to e-mail her. Sarah in turn sent pictures and told us she wanted to sell as soon as possible because her husband died recently and she didn't want the memories.
She said that she would pay to ship it to us in RI and it would be handled through Amazon so that it would be safe for both of us. She said that she would have Amazon send us the paperwork to handle the transaction. I received a form (?from Amazon) noting our name & address information and Sarah's name & address. Our address is incorrect and it's highlighted on the form to call Amazon support dept (408)457-1770. I'm thinking that they're going to ask me for bank information at that time. She sent me another e-mail asking me if we received the form. I told her I did but that I wanted to wait until my wife got home from the bank. I'm not sure how to send you these e mails but you can reach me @ (401)714-4214
