Default Scam alert: Chalesp73

This person created an account the day I posted a want ad, had me reach out to a "friend" and gave me the run-around. I almost sent money to them, but PayPal kept kicking it back. Within 10 seconds of telling them PayPal was kicking it back, they sent another email address.
