Yeah, I didn't even do any aspect of 'research' per se, I just glanced at my phone and saw yet another 'offer', and instantly thought it was the same person writing (again) since I had yet to write back to them 'sorry, made my own'. When I got home, I sat at the computer and then realized it was from a different person, but with the same grammatical errors and near exact phrasing, enough that I'm 99.9% it's a skim and phish attempt.
If I get 'bored' (haha, 4 day old daughter, almost 2 year old son...bored...sure...) tonight, maybe I'll write back all 'yay', and see the responses -- I'll bet paypal would be out of the question, but western union would be suggested!
Thanks for the research -- Also a bit 'off' was the inclusion of location, especially the specific location. I use craigslist here and there, and these forums, and initial contacts rarely include as such -- It was almost trying to build 'too much' credibility.
