D2x $600 Craigslist scam to watch out for

D2x $600 Craigslist scam to watch out for

this one is pretty obvious but just thought I’d post it for the newbees


I still have the camera and the price is $600

My name is David Brenet and I am a professionist photograph but for this reason I'v had to move in London, United Kingdom.
At this new company where I work now they have gived me a new camera
and now I have to sell this one because I don't need it anymore

All original accessories, software and manuals...nothing missing. USA warranty card. USED 5 TIMES IN HOME PHOTO STUDIO.

I've only taken about 1200 photos with it. It really is in brand new condition. Not a mark on it.
We can close a deal asap.
Obviously we need a way to complete this deal that will allow us to make
sure we receive what we are after.
I have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in
this way you will receive the camera in less than 2 days, if you move fast as
well. The solution is provided by a company called TNT which is similar
to Fedex, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of the
I have found a procedure that will allow you to pay for the camera only after
you will receive it and through this way you will see it and test it
before I receive my payment.
Please click on the link bellow to the TNT website to see how we can
complete the deal safely and fast directly from the website of the

company where the procedure is explaine ww.tnt.com/country/en_generic/about/ournews/euexpansion.html

Like I said, I will pay for a 2 days delivery so you will receive the camera
right away.
I will explain to you step by step how this will work .
1) First you will have to send me your full name and address. I will
need them for the shipping.
2) I go to the TNT store and leave the camera onto your name as the
intended receiver.
3) TNT will check the camera to see if everything is OK with it and
also the legal papers that will come along with the pai .
4) TNT will send you a delivery notification to let you know they
have the camera,in which you will be told that they have the camera and
that they checked it.
5) At this point you will have to go to a Western Union Agent

Location and make a money deposit on the TNT payment agent name for the amount we agreed .
6) After you make the deposit you will have to send the info about
the money deposit to TNT (MTCN, sender's name and address)
7) TNT will verify the payment informations and if everything is in
order they will deliver the camera to you .
8) After you receive the camera, check it and see that all is in
order you will instruct TNT to send me the informations about the money
deposit and I will be able to receive the funds .
I will pay TNT for the shipping and you will pay Western Union for
the Money Transfer fee .
Let me know if we can do this.

Best regards
