Posted a camera on Craigslist a short while back.

Got a reply. Never mind all the huge warnings all over craigslist about being wary of long distance buyers and their false checks! This guy must be legit!

Because you saw this on Craigslist, I’m not sure why you are asking 
me “the price”.  It clearly says I’d like $700 for it, but I’m willing to entertain 
offers.   However, for you, I’ll let the camera go for $2500 dollars.  
I’ll include shipping in that price, though!!  k ok pls thx ok.

Why not do what that guy who did the P-p-p-p-powerbook thing did a few years back.
