I thought I had an orignal idea when I started responding to emails inquiring about things I was trying to sell on craiglist. Then I gooogled out of curiosity and was humbled by the artform that you guys have made of scam baiting.

I just want to know if this post is a waste of time here, in the wrong spot, wrong format, etc.(please excuse the politeness, I'm new to forum etiquette):

I got an email from Mary after listing a dashboard on craigslist. By the time I got her first email, I had sold it on ebay for $80.

I will make comments throughout this post (***like this***) otherwise I just copy from my email and paste onto here...

This conversation is over. I haven't heard from Mary since March 17, 2005

Subject: 1996 Impala SS Lower Dash

Hello am Mary Houston am intreested in buying your 1996 Impala SS Lower Dash posted forsale and i will like to know maybe it is still available and the last price of it ok.
Mary.

(***it was obvious Mary copied and pasted the "1996 Impala SS Lower Dash" directly from the listing. So basically she has no idea what she is "buying"***)

I did it Mary. I broke down. I gave into temptation and I gambled it all away. I stopped into a bar on the way to the western union office and had a beer. I hadn't drank for a while and it tasted sooo good. Then I had a second, then a third. Beer turned into rum, rum into whiskey, whiskey into tequila...I started feeling invincible. I slammed $7000 on the pool table and declared that I could match any trick shot in the house. The room stood quiet until a surly-looking man with an eyepatch and a nosering limped over to the bar and boldly accepted my challenge. He removed his prosthetic leg and placed it on the bar, hopped 20 ft over to where I stood and sunk the 8 ball. He proclaimed to have sunken the 8 ball with his left leg on the bar. The pool table was bolted down, Mary. My only hope was to throw the pool stick in a desperate attempt to escape this horrible situation. I drew back that pool cue with all of my emotions, and with one mighty heave...I lost my balance, and with it, my dignity. I am so sorry Mary. I have been in church all morning because last night my crack addiction snuck up on me again. The money is gone. Is there anything, ANYTHING that I can do to make it up to you? I give myself to your mercy.
Tom

hello mary. how are you. i'm sorry for that last email. i had to make them believe that i no longer have my wits. i think it will be safe to talk soon, but for now i am whispering because i don't want them to hear...i am now wearing a tin foil hat because i think they're on to me. you're the only one i can trust, and email is okay because there are no sound waves that can be picked up by the millenium transfunctioner. it is for this reason that i ask that you not read this aloud. i have moved into another apartment and i have changed my telephone number. please call when it is safe. (***payphone outside of Wawa given***) i have moved all goods to my new apartment. i will give you that address when you have received your money. western union details are as follows: the test question is "how long is a chinaman?" and the answer is "yes he is" take care and good journey *hand gestures*
