My wife put up a bag for sale on craigslist and throughout the day 'janet' emailed her back and forth stating that she would use [protected]@gmail.com for a money request towards paypal.

here's the text from the email:
The price is affordable to me. Do you have PayPal account concerning the payment? if you have you can send money request to [protected]@gmail.com for me to make the payment today.i would like to add $30 for the shipment cost via Canada Post.below is the mailing address
167 New Gower Street
P.O. Box 908
St. John's, NL
A1C 5M2
so let me know your decision.

I'm glad that I searched out the address and that scamchecker already had posted some info re the addy.

Thankfully no money was sent and correspondence was terminated.
