hey all...this email is good times. So as some of ya'll might know...dell.com had a SWEET deal on a TIVO box. Anywho..I bought one with resale in mind. Well, to make a long story short, I'm selling the TIVO box on craigslist, and here is the emails as follows. HOW can I get my money? RED flags ALL over the place, but I was wondering if I can still get my money from this guy LEGIT, following all laws and screwing him over.
here are the emails
I will like to know if this item of yours is still available
and i will also like to know the present condition of this
item......get back to me as soon as possible....Thanks......
email two: me replied
the condition of the item is sealed, new in box. Everything new...never touched. here are some pictures of it on my floor. there are 2 other people also wanting to purchase it, but none have followed up yet. First come first served.
email three: replied back to me

carrier will pick it up from your door step,So get back to me with

funny stuff going on here. HERE is the major red flag. I'm selling the box for $165.00 and he's offering $170.00. as you read, he wants to use bidpay. I'm almost 100% sure this is a scam. But!! I wanna play around with this a bit and see if I can get money out of this and he gets his product. Any suggestions on how I can achieve this?
