I want you to consider it sold, pls do withdraw the advert from site to avoid disturbance,I donít have time to come over to take a look because of my Business but you donít need to bother yourself with the shipment, Iíll take care of that by engaging the services of a mover, hence Iíll be sending a certified cashier check and it will be delivered to you via Fedex, so Iíll need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of the check.
1.full name on the check.
2.Full Physical address to post the check

4.Home & Cell Phone to contact you.

Yeah I have seen the exact same formed reply from another scammer. RCU sent me an email and saw that this other guy was a scammer and not do biz with them. RCU cancelled their account. RCU hasn't sent me an email saying this sam098/coltonamos is a scammer

I reported him to the mods a while back when I saw his fishing posts,, no response,, not sure if anyone is moderating the classifieds any longer since the account is still active.

This is a very old scam technique,, be smart boys

Those kind of people have mental problems. They know only one way and that is figuring out ways to steal from people. They can land in jail time after time and again they have mental problems so when they get out they just go back to stealing. My advice is if a person gets ripped off by this clown the person that got ripped off should find out where this clown lives and go break every bone in his hands and cripple up the clown so that he can never use a computer again

He sent me a check through the post office. Going to take it to my bank and have them verify the account and then cash without depositing into my account. If the check is no good going to report him for mail fraud. Hate people that are rip offs. If anyone has actually been ripped off by him or had their accounts hack after responding to him please let me. I do not want any personal information from you but you may have to talk with fraud department from the post office

Does anyone on this thread have any experience dealing with Larry Roman, ROMANADVENTURE111? I received an offer via email from him with a very similar format to that used by Colton Amos. He did not make the offer through RCU but rather send me an email directly. Not feeling warm and fuzzy about this guy.

Better suggestion

Don't deal with these people at all. Why set yourself up for risk? If you see either of these people on this site, please report them immediately instead of trying to find a "safe" way to complete the transaction. They are not here for the hobby. They create accounts for the sole purpose of taking your money.
