Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you. Please just give me a moment to review your question....

Expert:  Patrick, Esq. replied 1 month ago.

Yes, this is a scam. The email address you have given has already been widely reported as engaging in Craigslist and ebay scams. What they will do is direct you to a fake "payment" portal which wires the money directly to them rather than to Ebay or any legitimate escow or payment company. In the future you want to avoid "too good to be true" offers like this, especially if they are trying to direct you to a specific manner of payment and they cannot meet you in person.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.

If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Very best wishes moving forward.
