No. It is a Scam. It is just your typical fake check scam. The check you receive will be for much more than you agree to. The scammer will blame his "assistant" (who really doesn't exist). He will tell you keep a some of the money. He will probably toss in an extra $100 for your trouble. He will then tell you to send the remainder back to him via Western Union. Then, a few weeks later, you are notified that the check was fake. You are now responsible for covering the fake check and you could even face criminal fraud charges yourself. Expect a few of these responses when you sell on CL.

The check will be 100% fake. They always are. These fake check scams have been around for years and years. Surprised you didn't know about them. You will wire money back. That will be the next email. That check you get could clear at first, but bounce months later. The pick up, is just a distraction.

I'd be very cautious about this. Personally, it seems kind of phony to me. A rule of thumb that has served me well for most of my life is this: if something about a business deal (or anything else, for that matter) seems suspicious to you, listen to it. I've found this to be true over and over again; when I go with a feeling that something isn't right, I've never regretted it--and have been very sorry when I didn't.

Scam. Don't even bother emailing back. I hate that ****! You can tell when it's a real person, they should have cash in hand ready to meet up.
