Does this look like a legitimate buyer?

    So a few weeks back I put my MBP on craigslist and forgot about it.

    Well I got this email recently.

    "Here is my phone number, (cell#). I have 950 in cash and can meet at a location of your discretion this evening. Thank you. Chad
    Chad W. Jones, CEO
    Executive Protection Solutions

    P.O. Box (box #)
    Dayton, Ohio 45420
    W-(phone #)
    F-(fax #)
    C-(cell #)
    www.exec-pro.com"

    Does this seem legitimate?
    I think I'm going to follow through with it.

    Seems legit, certainly professional. Just be sure to meet somewhere public, where plenty of people would see.

    Meet in a public place with plenty of people around, or take a friend or two with you. Be safe.

    email him through his company web site and verify.

    Also, wouldn't a CEO have enough money to buy new and not off craigs list?

    I agree on the cash thing- do the exchange outside the bank, take it inside the bank to deposit, then let him take the computer.

    Just to be on the safe side, bring the M16 and a grenade or two. It's a dangerous world out there.;)
