    I got one kind of like that. I was selling a 25' stainless steel chimney liner kit for wood and gas stove installations. I received this in response to the ad:

    I wish I could find a wife who would be happy with a chimney liner kit for her birthday...

    thats why i quit selling shit on craigslist.. i got NOTHING BUT spam from third world countries trying to scam me.. i had no inquiries from anyone around here, not to mention.. if there was someone from around here i probably ignored them thinking it was another scam

    craigslist seriously needs to do something about it..
