The text is well written, much better than Nigerian 409. It could fool someone.

Yeah... Thought the guy was an *BLEEP* for not replying to my requests for info. Not sure either how the scam works--maybe 'seller' asks for some amount of money for shipping, trusting that buyer will pay actual telescope price upon delivery? Since there is no telescope, the 'buyer' is now out of a few hundred dollars...

As for the fake Cloudy Nights payment management, the requirement to use Wester Union gives it away. Somehow, scammers are very fond of Western Union....

I notified Kijiji of this and they removed the ads. I wonder how they were supposed to scam you...
