p.1 #1 · eBay scam?


I just received the following message requesting an out-of-eBay transaction. It is for a fairly old but popular item...

Hi
I'll buy this item off you right now for $xxx.
I have a confirmed paypal account I do business online all the time.
just haven't been on auction sites much.
I do t-shirt logo designs online at xxxxx.com and xxxx.com and other websites.
so my paypal account is always active every month for commissions I get from those websites.
I been using a wacom intuos 5 med tablet for awhile now.
and I need a different type to increase my progress for skill and work load.
and I hear [your product] will do that.
so right now I can pay for it the most $xxx. tops $xxx.
please let me know if you like to do this or just wait till your auction for bids have ended ?

Scam or not? Uncertain whether to engage, as scamming grows increasingly more sophisticated. Someone recently tried (unsuccessfully) to scam me out of an iPad, and he actually had the gumption to call me before realizing I would not fall into his trap.

I would be intrigued to hear your thoughts.

I think you know the answer to your question.

'tone' sounds allot like the craigslist scammers..poor grammar, punctuation, rambling on, trying too hard to convince,, on and on, etc...common sense just looking at this tells me not legit
