Dear Chloe,

I am so thankful you have contacted me.  For this Item has been destroying me from the inside.  I normally wouldn’t consider parting ways with it, but the burden has grown so heavy… so heavy.   Given your expressed written need for The Item, I have full confidence that you are the one that can assume responsibility for it and its tremendous powers.

Please send your company’s agent to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro at midnight at the next full moon and bring a female virgin goat.   I will provide the ceremonial obsidian knife.  Your agent may or may not make it back alive, and goat will definitely not make it back alive.

I can only hope that you have the strength to be The New Holder of the Item that I believe that you can be.

Jizzy McStiffenpants, Esq. III

Name:  Keeper of the Item
Address: One Item Avenue
City:  Land of the Item
State: New Item
Zip code: 66666
Final asking price:  Your Soul

    Did you ever e-mail them back with this response? If so, did they write back?

      Yes. They did not write back. I guess the responsibility of The Item was too much for poor Chloe to handle.

    Have you thought about adding some relevant links to the article? I think it might enhance viewers understanding.

      No need. Pretty much anyone who sells anything on craigslist will get spam e-mails like this.
