Browsing Craiglist to purchase tickets to next weekends Dallas game and received this email back after responding to an ad.

Wonder how many people get with these scams? These tickets are way more expensive than 75$ aso lol.

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in my tickets.
Up for sale are (4) Dallas Cowboys vs San Diego Chargers Tickets 12/13 in Section C112 Row 11 for $300 ($75each) ,including shipping
I have recently moved to London, UK with work and I will miss the game. I'm not a broker I'm very well paid here and I'm not looking to make extra money using these tickets.We will use Purchase Safe to handle this transaction as they act like a 3rd party, just like Escrow.
Here is how Purchase Safe works:
1.Buyer and seller agree on the transaction terms and price.
2.Seller contacts Purchase Safe Center with the transaction details.
3.Buyer receive the transaction details and payment instructions from Purchase Safe Center by email.
4.Buyer deposit the payment to ebay agent and send the payment details to Purchase Safe Center.
5.eBay center verify payment from buyer and then will notify the seller to proceed with the shipping.
6.Buyer receives the tickets and have 3 days to inspect it. After the inspection period is over, the buyer must contact Purchase Safe Center with the result of the inspection. If the buyer refuses the
tickets, the money is refunded to the buyer after the tracking number for the returning shipment is verified.
7. If the buyer keeps the tickets he must notify Purchase Safe Center to pay seller with the amount of money.
VERY IMPORTANT: After you send the money to ebay agent he will deposit them into an escrow account until you get and verify the tickets.
Shipping will be done thru fed ex overnight delivery.
IF YOU WANT TO PURCHASE THEM EMAIL ME BACK WITH:
YOUR FULL NAME:.......
YOUR ADRESS:...
CITY:...
STATE:...
ZIP CODE:....
EMAIL ADDRESS:....
Thank you

If you ever see the word "craigslist" its probably a scam. Of course, thats just the opinion of an ole geezer, but I have heard too many horror stories having to do with that site.
