Craigslist emails gone wrong Vol 1.

Joined Jan 29, 2008
I was on Craigslist looking to get a new phone, and I stumbled on an ad that made me want to email the guy back. He was looking to do a straight trade for his Tmobile G1 for a HTC HD2. Anyone who keeps up with cell phones or technology knows this is a ridiculous trade. It's the equivalent of asking to trade an iPhone 2G for a iPhone 3GS.
Im sure he deleted the post since I can't find it anymore, but I will post our email transcripts.

Me: so you want to trade a g1 for a hd2?

Him: ya i know there is a 50 dollar difference an i really wanted to get it for my fiance's birthday im going to the airforce an i spent the last bit of money i had on my fiance's ring and wanted to get her somethin nice and was hoping someone would want to trade straight up not tryin to put on a sob story or anything jusy had a few people piss me off by emailing me about it and talking crap and etc. 

Me: I was gonna make fun of you but now I feel bad. Noone is gonna pull the trade but good luck 

Me: It's a 350 difference in real world.

Him: 350??? no G1 retail price is 369.99 HD2 is 449.99 its an 80 dollar difference 

Me: I don't know if your trying to pull a fast one, or your just oblivous to the fact that a g1 used is worth $75 and hd2 is worth $400 used. Go on eBay and see for yourself. There is not one person in the world who would give you a hd2 for a g1 without atleast 300 ontop

Him: Haha seriously your retarted if someone wants to sell a g1 for 75 then they can but my family works at tmobile I know everything about all there phones an I don't pull fast ones an its not used still in box haven't even been setup yet go look on tmobile .com thank you

Me: I was being nice to you the whole time you **** sucker, but i hope your wife cheats on you like every other military dude who get shipped out.

Him: Haha man trust me she won't cheat an your not man enough to talk to me like that I mean come on your talkin !!!! through email

Me: Lol. "Trust me she won't cheat..." (even if you got her knocked up, she still gonna get it)

I wish the military had a better aptitude test before they send a dumb-@@!+$ like you to represent America.

Imma go back to watching "Brothers".......

That was my comic relief for the past few hours. If emails back, ill post. If you guys have any other 
, or 
 experiences on Craigslist, post them.

as far as I'm concerned, you're a herb loser for talking to someone through email like that.

OP, I feel you on the first part of the exchange. But telling him his fiance is gonna cheat on him and resorting to name calling is just silly.

Funniest part of all this, is that this whole time his email stated his name at the top.
