Agreed. I e-mailed him & told Mr. "Antonio" that his ad seems a little dubious.

There is nothing bogus about yahoo, gmail or hotmail email addresses nor toll free numbers. Its the user thats bogus.

However, a web search on 877 seems to suggest that it is the toll free prefix for the scammer of choice- Idea why? Perhaps because all the legit businesses grabbed 1-800 years ago, and the internet taking off in the '90s and scammers taking off made them take whats left- the newly assigned 877 numbers.

As for Gmail, hotmail and Yahoo- its easy to set up and FREE.

You best insurance against getting scammed is FREE too. Google the ad info; phone number item etc- See what comes up.

The Web is easy to post on.
