I received this response to two of my ads (which have been dormant for quite a few weeks.) Both responses in the same day, one for my Miraphone 4 Valve Rotary Flugelhorn, and another for my Larson Piccolo trumpet.

I have not responded to either. How should I proceed?

Or read the two threads in the horns forum about this “buyer”.

My post is for others who wander over here, not the OP who appears to be on hiatus.

A hallmark of a scamming purchase offer is that it fails to describe the item specifically. These emails are often generated by "bots" and include bad spelling and grammar.
Just hit DELETE.

I received two of these yesterday, from the same "buyer". Seems best to steer clear.

This is a classic scam. This happens on Craigslist all the time.

To be honest, I've been looking at your Larson piccolo for quite some time...but I also "needcash", so I kind of sympathize with the scammer in a weird way.
