    Got one of those responses to my ad on Racing Junk. "Still available"? I thought that looked fishy, but I did reply "YES". Then got this rely.

    Hi,
    I appreciate your response to my inquiry. I really want to buy this
    item from you.what is the final asking price ? I would love to come and check it myself but Ijust got married and I'm presently on honeymoon to Palm Beach with mybwife. I would love a surprise change of look in our home on ou rreturn. Pls do withdraw ,with immediate effect, the advert from Web, idon't mind adding $50 extra for you to do that, so i can be rest assured that the item is held for me. I should believe it is in goodcondition as stated. I will be making the payment via Check, whichmy secretary will mail across to you. I'll be picking the item fromyou with the aid of my mover. My Mover will be coming to pick it fromyou once the Certified Check has been cashed. Pls I will need bothyour full name and residential address with postal code, also your
    phone number to issue out the payment.
    I await your response.
    Regards.
    Larry

    So it is a scam.

    My question is, when I answered the first time, did I give up information the scammer can use against me?

    And no Mark, all you did was reply the information they are looking for would be if you sent him all the personal info he asked for in the second email
