Default help judging a craigslist sale

So to maken alonger story short, which i can elaborate on if anyone would like to hear more details.

I have a partially built bicycle for sale on my local craigslist here in Portland OR. Im getting emails from a guy in los angeles, amd he continues to ask for my address so he can get a quote on shipping through his own company. And he asks for my paypal second to send me the money.

Nothing special about the bike in particular, just seems strange, every email he sends me he is asking for my address. Is this something i should be weary of? I came here because i know there are quite a few honest people who regularly deal with strangers, and figured you guys could give me some solid advice. Thanks for any help

He doesn't need an address to get a quote, just knowing the zip code will get him a quote. Sounds fishy.

Not worth the risk, wait for a local buyer.

I wouldn't give him your address on there even if he was a relative.

I'd meet him somewhere else to sell things on CL.

This has nothing to do with car audio for one.

I would post this in off topic area instead.

Lastly we isn't car audio counselors. Or Craig's list for that matter.

Sounds legit, email him your address phone number, social security number, and maybe throw in a couple of shirtless selfies just for kicks. And tell him to send you a cashiers check for 1000 over the amount your selling your bike for and you'll send back the difference. .....to Nigeria.

Damn. My intention was for it to go in the off topic spot exactly for those reasons navigation on the phone isn't always spot on

and I want to thank everyone else. I've done some more thinking, and I've seen PayPal scams where the buyer claims the package was no good. I think that might be what he's up to.

I should add that the shirtless selfies would go nice with pantsless selfies!

Tell him you will gladly mail it to him provided he sends the payment as a gift. lol

Seriously thought the dudes in L.A. I am sure he can find a bike, It's almost certainly a scam
