I think I’d pass…Anyone shopping on craigslist who can throw $200 over the asking price doesn’t sound legit to me.

I’ve been almost scammed by these types of people on CL. They sent me a fake PayPal receipt, and when I checked my account, sure enough, it hadn’t gone through. Thank god I checked, otherwise, some scammer would have gotten a pretty sweet laptop for free. They try to get you by “paying” more than the asking price. That’s a red flag.

Never trust anyone who won’t meet in person, no matter what they say. When I’m trying to sell something, I always get at least a few of these e-mails a week (it’s generally for stuff of a higher value). I usually reply by saying, “I know you’re scamming me, don’t e-mail me again.”

Hope that helps!

I’ve seen people have this kind of response before, don’t do it!  It’s definitely a scam.

No, it’s a scam.  When someone wants to pay over the asking price it is always a scam.  I would keep looking for a buyer.

I agree…. walk away!

If he can pay over the asking price, why wouldn’t he get one from a legit jeweler instead of craigslist?

Honestly something seems fishy about it.  The weird grammar really screams at me that it is a scam.

The scammers offer the extra money so you send them a check for $200 after they send you the fake paypal reciept or whatever shady “proof” of payment they have.

Try a local jewelry store and see if they buy used jewelry (not a pawn shop, just a regular jewelry store).
