The world is full of thieves. Beware!
This one looked too good to be true, and it was.

> Thank you for your email. I still have it for sale. It's in great working condition I can assure you that it's full operational. Unfortunately for the moment I am outside of my state for the next 3 months due to my new working contract. When I have received this working contract, I have decided to close the transaction using a Third Party Agency (This type of agency will take care of all the transaction details). A transaction closed through this agency will assure safety for both buyer and seller at the same time. The name of the agency that I prefer to use is iSOLD It ( http://www.887-iS0LDit.com ).
> This is a company provided by eBay for transactions closed over the Internet. It is very safe, recommended by eBay and also by Craigslist.
> At this moment the product is located into iSOLD It custody. I have left it there because in case we`ll agree to close the transaction they will take care of all the arrangements. If you are interested to purchase it please feel free to mail me for more information regarding the transaction terms.

> Thank you in advance!

Avoid UK Craigslist, about 50% scams and they never do anything about it.
