Early morning spam in my inbox

I recently received a response regarding some tires I listed on Cragslist. It later turned out that the person responding was really just sweetening me up to later net me into some rediculous ebay-esque website. Here is how my most recent interaction went down. . .

My reply. . .


I'm so glad you thought of me and of how you can help by sharing your amazing bidding site with me! I thought that listing an item I had no need for on Craigslist would be a great method for earning a little extra money - which is something I could definitely use. It turns out that what I really needed, was to use this bidding website you pointed to me to so I can more crap I don't need and have even less money than now. It seems counter-intuitive but the way you initially responded to my ad as though you wanted to buy my tires (thereby getting my hopes up) only to later send me this email letting me know you actually want ME to buy something from YOU has really grabbed my attention. Thanks for helping start my day off on such a positive note.
