So I'm selling my Razorback, and I post a detailed ad for it in the facebook marketplace. I get a response about a week later (this morning) but it seems a little fishy. The girl isn't a part of any networks, has no profile picture, and wants me to respond via email only and speaks a little..odd. Is cashiers check or Money Order something I should be worried about? I've got 30+ feedback on Ebay but have only payed through Paypal. Also, why is she not just saying 'purchasing your guitar or razorback'? Why does she just copy and paste the ad title? Here is the message (with the email edited out).
What do you guys think? Scam? Keep in mind I live in Atlanta GA, she claims to live in Toronto, Canada.

RESPONSE TO THIS MESSAGE SHOULD BE SENT TO (********@yahoo.com)

Don't send the goods until you receive payment.

I won't send anything without receiving payment and having it cleared first..but this just seems really suspicious.

And I just shined and took 15 pictures of it for her. If "she's" really a Nigerian scammer I'll send her a case o' anthrax

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
