Default Marc Pen paypal scam buyer

[email protected] emailed me to buy my rolling chassis sight unseen for full asking price. Then gives a BS story about being busy and send this list of questions:
1:Are you the first owner of it?
2:Why are you selling it?
3;your Phone number #
4.Does it has any fault affecting it?
5.Can you send me general close up pictures as i will be unable to
come look at it in person and so that i can have a better look?

Q1 is stupid because it's an old roller.
Q4 is awesome because it 'has many fault affecting it'
Q5 I have many pics if he followed the link.

Then I looked him up on paypal.

I'm not going to fall for this guy. Be careful out there.

Sure seems to be a lot of them from gmail accounts. My smart phone uses gmail so I use it but I also have a hotmail account. I try to use my hotmail on places where I will buy or sell things because people seem to not trust anyone with a gmail address.
