The issue in GetHuman-simnioni's own words
I posted an ad with the Yakima, WA CList. we are trying to sell an event tent. I had a response about ** minutes after I posted by text. The buyer requested a e-mail communication as to whether the item was still for sale. This item is $**,***.** I sent them an e-mail with my phone * and asked them to call. This story is involved and it seems to be strange in that he will continue by sending a few e-mails but makes up an excuse he can't call because he is in the Marine Corps in Quantico Virginia. He also utilizes the US Marine Corps Logo in his E-mail to establish credability. He says he will pay full price without viewing the item. I have asked to physically talk to him and he avoids providing a phone number. and wants to send the payment to a paypal account. I have not given him that info. I think he is trying to scam paypal accounts. I have asked him to explain how he plans to pick up the item and he does not respond. I do not believe he is a real buyer. It bothers me that he is impersonating a member of our armed forces. I hope this rises to someone's attention please call me at ***-***-****
