iphone 4s 64gb $350.00 craigslist scam

I'm reading some of the posts in here and around in the internet. I'm not too sure but I feel this it's just a craigslist scam, more so than a myparceldelivery scam. I'm reading in the internet people trying to be refunded but if you make a payment through Western Union to some persons name you never heard of during the whole transaction mine was "Jacob Marshall" and shows no proof as to how this person is attached to myparceldelivery. It seems as tho the person's name that is left to send the money to in each post is different, but there's a lot out there getting scammed by an Emily Xxxxxx somebody.

below are the emails:

Hi, I am getting back to you regarding the iPhone 4S with 64GB from Craigslist

My name is Emily and I am now in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The iPhone is still available and I hope you are still interested.
I am selling the iPhone for $350 USD. I have attached a picture with it to this email.
Included in the $350 price is everything that came with the iPhone and also the warranty papers.
I tried to be as thorough as I could with the presentation so you can have all the info if you decide to go ahead and buy it. So what do you think? Do you want my iphone?

Thanks,
Emily

my reply:
Hi,
Yes, lets proceed, I agree with myparceldelivery sound good. Let me know what you need, other than my address maybe we have to agree on how many days I have to inspect the phone. I would think 2 or 3 days would do just to be able to check the service

scammer:
I will sell you the iphone for $350 with everything in the pictures included, I will use 2 day delivery and allow you 5 days to inspect it.
I will send it tomorrow. I will keep you posted.

I feel very bad today and I can't leave the house.
I hope I will be better tomorrow so that I can send the package.
Sorry for the delay.

scammer:
I talked to my brother and he can send it on Monday.
Let me know if it's not to late. I apologize for the delay.
Are you still interested?

my reply:
Yah, That's fine. Let me know on Monday. Hope you're feeling better.
