Pool Table For Sale... $1000

I decided to sell my 8' slate top, Connelly Pool table. I've had it for about 16 years, but for the last 11 years, it has remained covered and a great storage table for items no longer of great use to me. If I ever took the cover off and broke the balls, Bogie would grab as many balls as he could fit in his mouth and take off running away. It became useless to try to play with him around, so I didn't. Now that Bogie has gone off to that pool room up in the sky, I've decided to start thinking about smaller accommodations and certainly a place that won't fit a pool table. I put my favorite recreational facility on Craigslist and within literally 24 hours had 3 substantial offers.

Two, I suspected were scams and the third was just an email offer of 20% less than I was asking without ever seeing the item he was offering on. I don't consider that legitimate. The first email is below and it offers me full price and all I have to do is make CHANGE out of my checking account after his cashier's check clears. Naturally I looked into this and it said right on the Internet when I googled the guy's name that he was a crook and his check is counterfeit. This is as close to a real life crook as I've ever gotten and it freaked me out a little.

The next one seems legitimate until you get to the part where it says he just moved here from Glendale, AZ and that's where his check is coming from. We are almost walking distance from Glendale, AZ here. This guy claims to be deaf, so he can't speak to me, thus only emailing will suffice.

I'm only asking a thousand dollars and what I'm looking for is a buyer who'll come and look at it and say, I'll take it or make me a real offer that's reasonable. Here are the 2 scam letters for your inspection.

Hello, Thanks for your prompt reply.Well,i must say you ve got a nice item and as a matter of fact,In a transaction like this, i will appreciate it if we can put trust first so that the transaction can go smoothly.I would have love to come by with cash and pick it up but at the moment am a kinda of too busy to come over,so i think i can send you a cashier check via Fedex Or UPS overnight and my shipping company could come pick it up once payment is cleared.The Check will be excess and all what you will need to do is to just send the remaining balance to my Shipper for pick up after deducting your money,if you are ok with this pls do get back to me with your full name,address and phone number so i can proceed with the payment and pls do keep this item for me and inform other interested party that its been sold..okRegards,


Hello my name is Tony,i am interested in buying your item listed on CL, Please let me know if its still for sale and perhaps in good condition and I await your response and i will proceed with purchase if its still for sale and in good condition i also want you to know that I will be buying from you so please kindly withdraw the advert from CL. Please be informed that i will be paying with a certified check from my Bank as i just moved here from Glendale AZ on a job transfer.I will need the following details to mail the payment later in the day ...
1.Name to be on the payment2.Home address3.Cell phone #
I am completely satisfied with the advert and the payment will be delivered within 2-3 working days.** I use a hearing impaired phone # and will receive your calls via email I await your response and i will proceed with purchase if its still for sale and in good condition

I seldom leave a response, however i did some searching
and wound up here "Pool Table For Sale... $1000". And I actually
do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it give the impression like a few of the comments come across like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I'd like to keep up
with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list
of all of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

I'm completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so
