May be I am too naive, but I hope that he is a good man.
I do not want to have problems because I alredy had problem with Ferdinando Villano from Italy. You can read this case on forum

I also received an email from him telling me that he wanted to by my container.. when I'm only selling a coupon for a container.

I know that he's prob a scam, but what are the signs that immediately give him away?

Re: [zeldag] Username: unitedunited1 -- Classified Buyer Scam [In reply to] Can't Post

yea i got the same mail twice. one for a main conyainer and one for a canopy. they seem legit because he is offering to send the money but in cases like this the scammer is not actually after the product. when you agree to sell he will come up with a long convoluted story about not being in his own country to arrange shipping. he will arrange to send you more money than you are actually asking for your item. this is the hook that keeps you believing he is straight up. he will send you the check or money order plus extra for shipping but he will insist that he arranges the shipping and a courier will pick up. this is where the scam kicks in. he will ask you to send him back a money order for the extra he has paid you for shipping. you have either recieved the check or notification that the money order has arrived. you send him back the postage money(which is generally a very large amount), your check or money order from him is cancelled and he gets your money order before you even know anythings wrong. no one evr contacts you for the item and you just sent a prick some free money.. job done. blue skies to everyone out there...
