Hello ,
I saw your item listed on several locations. It has the same photos, same description but a lower price! Is this yours or this guy is trying to scam us?
Take a look at the post and please advice: http://craigslist.org/cto/1941057764.html because I really don't want to lose my money. I want to make sure we are talking about the same item. In case the above link doesn't work, copy and paste in to your browser. Please let me know.
Also please reply and leave me your phone number 'cause I tryed to call you several times but I had no luck.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
