Is this a craigslist scam?
you are about to fall for a fake check scam. Why would the scammer offer $50 extra. Tear up the check and find a local buyer paying cash. A check clearing can take weeks. Banks have to make the fund available after a few days, but if the check turns out bad a week or more later, the bank takes back the money.

It's a SCAM NOBODY but a scammer offers $50 MORE than the listing price. Real buyers try to negotiate the price down, not up If the check is for a penny over $220 you DO NOT cash or deposit it. It's fake. if the name and address on the check are NOT the same as the person you are talking to and the exact address he told you to send the phone to, then the check is stolen and you can be charged for cashing or depositing it. You ONLY have the right to deposit a check from the person you are in contact with for the exact amount agreed upon in emails - not a penny more It can take up to 4 weeks for a check to clear

Could be, most dont overpay willingly like that. You can always cash the check and check a few days later with your bank (your bank only, dont go by anything he tells you) to confirm the check has cleared. Then send the phone. Here are some common online scams, yours sounds like number 1 http://www.justtext.com/scams/index.html

Not always, read this http://onyoursi.de/2012/01/is-this-a-scam-even-a-cleared-check-is-never-really-cleared/ there are a lot of scammers out there I wouldn't trust this. it could be a genuine person but most of the time its not! deal in person only! pay pal would be safer!

if the check clears it is no scam. A check clearing means that it is all legal and stuff.
