I got the same email from a person named Arianna Greenan, as a response from my craiglist inquiry. Unfortunatelly, I sent the money already through Western Union. After they received the money, the sent me a tracking number for the shipment. Today is the second day after I got that tracking number and somehow the status has been the same for the last 2 days. I called TNT and they said they do not have that service. The tracking number is not even what TNT use. I emailed the "customer department" but my emails bounched back saying a permanen failure.

I should have known this, unfortunaly late ------ but the bottom line is - we should convince ourselves that craiglist is facilitating a LOCAL transation and we should not send money to unknown people, moreover internationally. US police cannot do much with international fraud.

I have attached some pics with the laptop here http://www.photoworks.com/photo-sharing/shareSignin.jsp?shareCode=AF68893C926&cp=ems_shr_alb_pml&cb=PW so you can see the condition of the laptop, and I hope we can work out a deal.
