Has anyone heard of a lad using an iPhone?

I saw a listing on Craigslist that looked suspicious to me: A guy looking for a home to do a Playboy photoshoot in. Thinking it a scam I responded, but the guy's response came from an iPhone asking for pictures of my home and suggesting we meet.

It may be a scam, but I'm thinking it's not the advance fee fraud I thought it was. Should I dig deeper or abort? I'm leaning towards the latter but just wanted to see any of you know of a scam that opens like this?

May be for real, may be someone wanting to check out your security arrangements to rob you. Where did you hear the ad? Is he offering more than $50 for your inconvenience? Is your house special in any way? I assure you, there is no lack of average looking houses that he would need to advertise to find one on something as scattergun as CL!

I have seen plenty of craigs Lads (not) sending mail from their iPhones.

Most just put the words "sent from my iPhone" in their auto-signature.

I've tried de-education my putting "sent from my eaterPad" in mine.

That was a good point about lads just tacking "Sent from iPhone" to their sigs so I pulled the header info. The X-Mailer line says it was from an iPhone:

Using a live.com email address seems like a strike against him.

I'm in Houston and this email is originating from Houston. He offered $200 for use of my house.

And I haven't sent him pictures of my house yet, I just sent out a feeler email to see what kind of response I'd get.

Not everything that you see on craigslist is a scam. Maybe this one isn't.

You showed doubts in you opening post:-
