I put up a listing on Craigs list and within 2 hours he emails me asking if it was still for sale. Then says he will buy my truck, site unseen, pay by cashiers check and wants my name, adress ect to send the check. His first email was from a account. Listed had a austin addy as said above.

When I said he can call me for details, he replies within 5 minutes that hes away on business and left his phone, but email him my info so he can send the check asap.

Something doesnt smell right, did some research and found this.

Sounds to me like an identity thief.

there are two scammers with this name

One is in Afghanistan purporting to be an american soldier, when his IP tracks back to Ghana. This one is a bit dumb and easy to lead on

The other said he was a businessman in NYC and I tracked his phone number to scam letters from Nigeria

I believe the guy on craigslist is the Nigerian and he's nasty as hell when he realises you're onto him. His email address is This one is more sophisticated in that he works with a team. He also had a false Facebook profile and I tracked down the real owner of his profile pic and we got his FB closed down

Dont send your info to these guys, they onsell your details to other scammers

Good luck

link here

google Steven J Edward scammer

its a huge scam, they send you money to purchase the item, but send too much. Ask you to refund the overpayment. Then your bank bounces the payment and you're left with a bill to pay and serious money laundering questions from your bank and the authorities. People have been up on fraud charges when they are innocent victims

be careful and good luck guys x

Steven Edwards just wrote me with all the same info for an armoir I am selling. Wanted to have you setup a paypal account and then provide him all the usual details.

Funny that people still ask for this stuff and even more funny (not really) that people provide it to losers like Steven.

He wants to buy a mountain lion from me, sight unseen and wants all my information. His first email was from an i phone with Then his next two emails were from 2 different gmail accounts. The following is the address he gave, which is a real address. I also believe he is an identity thief, and am sure he is trying to scam me by sending a cashiers check which will clear the bank, but will be a fake, and leave me responsible for the check amount. What a CREEP!

If you look up google maps and locate the address, it is an apartment building. Between the e-mail reply and the fact that it was just a basic apartment building with no apparent storage I was very skeptical and began a search for him that lead me here. I am very glad I researched it before doing anything.
