I'm trying to sell a camera on Craigslist and received the following query:

I would like to know maybe the item is still available for sale an in excellent condition?hear from you soonest..
without thinking, I went ahead and replied.  The ip up there is in Africa.  Why would
someone over in Africa be looking at my listing for Eugene?

Damn, I think I'm about to be annoyed by a scammer (and probably spammers)  time to
turn up the antispam settings on my mail server.
