Not sure if this is in the right spot but oh well

This is probably some dick trying to rip me off right?

Thanks for the swift response,I'm ready for its purchase and my form of payment will be by sending you Check with a 1st class mail delivery via ups which delivers next day. I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the mover's money will be included in your payment to avoid delay, cost of postage and to enable them schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location as i have other properties to be moved. Would really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible, please do get back to me with your full name and address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment. Awaiting your response.

I get those all the time when I sell on CL. Ignore it. Scam.

Your best option man. Tell this dude" "
Dont get sucked in by "really needing to sell something," and winding up screwed by some scammer.
If you do though, I promise I wont laugh at you.... too much...

I told him I'm only accepting cash already, just wanted to know for future reference though, what I got from it is that he's sending friends to come get it while he mails me a check for which he needs personal **** that he shouldn't. I was like

Yes, it's a scam...notice how he doesn't even mention what the item is in the message. That's because he's sent the same one to everyone on craigslist.
Actually called Mark!

Exactly!! 100% correct. Looks like a copy/paste to me.

Definitely a scam. Common elements of the same scam:

Never mentions the item.
Says a third party will be handling/delivering/picking up.
This person is "out of town on business" or something similar.
Is going to either pay by check or money order.

When it comes to craiglist you always want to deal in cash only unless you somehow happen to entice someone you know and trust.

I can add to that, "I cannot talk on the phone because I'm hearing impaired."

I got the same thing when I was selling my SG. My response, "Read the ad again bub, cash talks BS walks".

so let me get this straight... he wants to mail you a check which includes all costs of everything in the mail but then go pick up the guitar himself? lol? why doesnt he just bring you the check himself. also, when it comes to buying/selling over the internet, NEVER take checks. its impossible to tell if the check is legit or if they have enough funds in their account. i bought a zune 30 gb with my dad on craigslist and this is how the transaction went down:

1) we emailed him and said we were interested
2) he emailed back and told us to meet him in some parking lot at a certain time
3) we were driving there and called him halfway there and it turned out we were closer to him then the parking lot so we ended up meeting him on the side of a rode (yeh it was a tad bit sketchy)
4) he showed me the zune, let me test it out, look at it etc...
5) we gave him the money
6) we drove away, transaction complete

it was a bit sketchy but i was with my dad (i'm 16). the guy was very nice and was 95% honest. the plug that plugs into the zune had a tiny little small part missing that he didnt tell me about. it still works but it takes a bit of skill to get the plug out of the zune. so definately don't trust that guy. try finding someone else, it won't be that hard.
