“Hi, I am getting back to you regarding the iPhone 4S with 64GB from Craigslist

My name is Bruce and I am now in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Please take a look at the pictures attached to this email.
The iPhone is brand new, it works with any GSM carrier and comes with warranty.
I tried to be as thorough as I could with the presentation so you can have all the info if you decide to go ahead and buy it.
Let me know.

PS As you can see in the second picture, I also have iPads 4, Minis, and iPhones 5.

Thanks,
Bruce”

“Hi mate,

I was checking for a way to make the exchange from here to you in the US and I came across this option, which is a very good way to make this exchange.
It’s provided by a company called RapidParcel and it will help us with this transaction.
They seem designed specifically for internet transactions, they handle both the payment and delivery part of this transaction. They seem pretty nice and trustworthy and they provide a service that we can use for our exchange.
The link below is from RapidParcel website and it explains their procedure. Please check the link and the procedure and let me know if you agree to the terms.

With this procedure RapidParcel will deliver the iphone to you, receive your payment and I will receive the payment for the iphone only after you instruct them to do so.
I will pay the shipping.
Let me know if we can proceed.

Cheers.”
