I don't know if this is real or not, I've been warned by craigslist.com that replies like these may be spam.

I posted an ad on Craigslist to attempt to sell my old sound system. I succeeded in selling my amp that way, so I reposted the rest of the ad.

I got this reply about 6 hours after I posted it from a person named "Margaret Success"

Hello,
Kindly let me know if you still have the subject item for sales?if yes,Kindly get back to me with the present condition and your last asking price.
I will be looking forward to hear from you very shortly.
Regards


^^^ No I didn't edit that.

I figured... hmm... that is a strange name.. but at the same time, maybe I'll sell more of my stuff. So I wrote back.

Yes I still have the items for sale. The items are in the same great condition as the pictures linked in my ad, and work great as well. If you want all the items, the lowest I want to go is about $225... Asking $250. For the individual items, $40 per sub, bought for $75 each new. Head Unit $100, got for $160 including all the mounting hardware and whatnot that is included. Capacitor that I barely used $75, got for $100.

She sent this at about 5 this morning

hmm.. how about this ...

Sorry to inform you that I have gotten a better offer on the items, local and cash payment. I feel safer getting cash rather than a money order or check, so its a case of first come first serve.


And I am thinking next time I post an ad I will specify CASH ONLY

only problem is, i wouldnt EVER buy a pre-owned piece of stero equipment in cash... specially off craigslist... could easily be stolen. and putting an ad up as cash only def raises the stolen flag to me
