Its always the same kind of ad, a Dell XPS type laptop, with the same first sentence "You will find the specs bellow. If you have other questions, email me. I will do my best to answer asap. If I don't respond in 24 hours it means that I haven't received your email." followed by the laptop specs

When I play with them, they always tell me the same thing, that they are in UK for work, and that the laptop wont work there since it has US power supply, and that they cant sell it there for that reason, and want to sell it, and will ship it back via TNT. I havent really baited them long enough to figure out much about them.

Anyone ever did a good bait on one of them? ", title is "Dell XPS M 1710 Core Duo, don't miss it - $620" posted on LOTS of different sections on CL.

I had to revise this, the email address to reach the scammer isnt valid since the ad has been flagged
