Default Scam or no scam

This is the story! And I know the answer

I have a 5th wheel RV and a truck for sale on Craig's list. Received a text yesterday from sgt.Cedric Martin.

Cedric claims that he can't have a cel phone on the base just the use of computers, anyone know if a Sargent can have a cel phone on base ??

I asked if he had a place to store the 5th wheel and when was he picking it up

Said he was sending someone to pickup the truck and wanted my pay pal number

That was the third scam I've had sinc yesterday.

Yeah, I've had four offers like that on my Caddy (not advertised on Craig's list). One was "he just had a stroke" so he couldn't pick up the car. Uh-huh. You just had a freakin' stroke and you want to buy my Caddy. SURE!!! PayPal me the money! The others were "I'm in boot camp, on base, or deployed overseas."

Funny how when you tell them you'll only accept a wire transfer and once it clears my bank, I'll release the car for pickup and send the title via certified mail... they just sort of go POOF! never to be heard from again.

Every time I post something on Craig's List I get the scammer emails. I recently started using LetGo and I'm be danged if I didn't get a scammer email from this site! I wonder what the percentage of people actually fall for these scams? I like stringing them along for awhile and then rip the hell out of them on an email. Low life pieces of $hit trying to take money that people earned by having to work!
