This is getting crazy, I think I just dodged a scam similar to this, but different phone numbers.

Please don't put your email or phone number in your For Sale or Wanted topics. That opens you up to be contacted by anyone, anywhere, including con men in foreign countries where they can't be traced or prosecuted.
Paying with PayPal will give you some protection. Never wire money or send numbers from a cash card.

Exact same name and phone number, address that tried this on me, refer to my 8/13 post. I guess that is why they say there is a"stairway to heaven" and a "highway to hell".

They tried it on me also.

I actually called the "friend" just for the fun of it and after I told him that his friend sent me to him for a particular sign, he said he had one and all I had to do was send him a money-gram and he would send the sign. I asked for a picture and he then wanted my email address, I told him to send a pic to my phone and never heard from him. The guy I talked to spoke with a foreign accent.
