From: Dennis Myers (firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi there. My name is Dennis Myers. Am the one who sent you an email in the other time concerning this item through craigslist. I've gone through the item on craigslist once again and am okay with your asking price. I'll have my assistant to mail you a check for the payment, cause am out of town now. so once you receive the check in the mail and after you cashed it at your bank. I'll send my delivery service to come and pick up the item for me at your location after you cash the check. I would also offer you an extra $50 on the check for holding the item for me. and kindly take the posting off craigslist and consider it sold to me. Get back to me with your
CELL PHONE #. to sent you the check in the mail.
I have no plans to reply to this, but I'm curious and hope you'll help me out in the comments.
What's the end game on this scam? Is he trying to hack my gmail account?
