I had someone do that to me, except they wanted it to be shipped to South Africa. Lol at the scammers.

Read this on Craigslist:
http://www.craigslist.org/about/scams.html

At least two red flags: 1) money order; 2) shipping service.

Also, note how she offers to send more than the amount you ask for the computer... (As soon as you receive the
payment and it clears your in bank you will be deducting your actual fund and send the remaining amount to my shipping agent.). Not only does she want to scam you out of a computer, but out of some cash also!

This is classic Nigerian scam. But if you fell for it, you would never actually loose your computer, because the shipping company does not exist. You just send them money.

it's been said allready but yeh, it's a scam. It's easy to spot because they don't even mention the product. You were right to think it was a scam.

Definitely a scam, good thing you spotted it.

You should agree to it...get the FAKE money order

And then tell them it's fake and you reported them...you won't ever hear from them again.

Done it a couple of times...one actually got pissed and said he reported me...now that was funny
