@dynamic_duo:Yikes! I’m glad you didn’t fall for it. After my wedding I plan to sell mine through an eBay listing. <3 Good luck selling it!

@dynamic_duo: ummmm… that’s from someone in the UK?  Are we talking born in the UK or immigrated, cause that sounds like some of the Chinese emails I’ve got from trying to get a price quote and from the listings on ebay!!!  (We won’t mention the typical phishing emails about the 50k that will be sent to me from some arabian prince if I send ’em all my info… lol)

yeah, obvious scammer.  I’d have more believability if it were from the woman!

Oh I got so many of those. Anytime I see the words “certified check” I hit delete automatically and I don’t even bother to read through the bad English.  I also forward the email to oncewed.com or powd.com so they can add the person to their list of known scammers.

I also always add “NO CHECKS!!! ESCROW.COM ONLY! SCAMMERS NEED NOT BOTHER” to my craigslist ad which cuts down the number of those annoying emails.

I just posted one that I got too and I definitely now think mine was a scam too! I have never heard any one in the U.S. use “be chanced”
