Craigslist Macbook Pro Using Tnt Service — craigslist scam using fake tnt shipping service
Internet fraud using craiglist and fake TNT shipping service. This has been reported elsewhere and they're still at it. Note the web page looks pretty legit but check it out carefully; note no depot in "Wolverhampton" and if you simply go to www.europetnt.com, you will be redirected to the real site of TNT shipping.
The craigslist posting was for a Macbook Pro - too good to be true. Hope this helps others to avoid making an expensive mistake. Email correspondence follows.

Yes I still have the laptop. But there is something that I didn't mention in the post. Please bear with me on this. I am now in United Kingdom. I have been relocated here with my work several months ago. I don't need the laptop anymore so I tried to sell the laptop locally, but with no luck. I was offered silly money for the laptop because of issues like - it is a US version or the warranty doesn't work here or that it has a US keyboard format. That's why I'm trying my luck in the US. Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I found a service that will help us with that. Click on the link below to learn more about the service: TNT is a worldwide delivery company but it is better known here in the UK. You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check out the laptop before I receive the payment. In this way the both of us can be at ease. I will use 2 day delivery on my expense.
Please read their procedure and get back to me. Thanks,
