Rule of thumb, if they refer to what you are selling as "item" and never talk about any specific details of what it actually is- TOTALLY a scam.

I know I'm late to this party, but if there is ever really bad grammar it's a scam or a retard and you don't need to be dealing with them.

Make him send the cheque to a work address or something, then when he emails again, tell him you didn't get it. After he has sent you a couple, and you've cost him a few bucks, send his shipper to the address of the local Hell's Angels clubhouse (that's what I do with the duct cleaning pricks that keep calling me)

I don't quite understand how he's going to make money though. Does the check bounce and then they have the merchandise to resell? Seems like a bunch of hassle.

Usually don't they try to get you to cash a check for more than you're asking and then send them the difference?
Yes. My wife received a cashiers check drawn on a well known bank back east. The check itself was real, and actually drawing from General Motors for something that had nothing to do with them. We calle3d the bank, gave them the info, and they told us the chack would fund our account, then bounce at the originating bank.

We caught it for the scam it was, and shredded the check.

Something else I heard on the news about craigslist. Thieves will post a car or something for sale that is a pretty good deal so when you go to where they have you go they rob you.The story I heard was of an Acura for sale for $4700.00 the thief had the buyer go to a really nice neighborhood so they wouldn't suspect anything.

Ya... that's very common.

Never take cash when first going to look at a used car.

If the car is not parked IN a driveway... and if you see other cars that look a bit out of place, walk away.


Also....
There are unlicensed dealers that will park their inventory on a public street and arrange to meet their customers there. I was working an intersection and noticed about 12 cars with 4-sale signs. Between the 12 cars, there were probably 6 different phone numbers.
Two cars pull up, guys get out, and one starts taking the other around to look at several of them. Test drove 3 different cars before they both left.
