Someone who tries to scam you via email after you list something on craiglist. They typically send you a form email requesting personal information so they can "arrange for payment". Normally they don't reference the specific item you listed but refer to it as "your product" or "your listing". Scamtards are worse than used car salesmen but not quite as bad a child molesters.
Sample email from a scamtard:
Hello,
