    Are you seriously asking, or just wanting to tell us about it?
    Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they

    When I sold my last boat, I thought for sure I was being scammed, but the guy send me 3 cashiers checks which cleared instantly. He never looked at the boat or sent anyone to check me out. I would let him put the money in the PayPal account, withdraw it and hold the title and the boat till you move the money somewhere else. That's what I did and it worked out.

    That is a common scam. Don't even bother to answer him.
    Don't give him any info at all.
    Run the other direction as fast and far as possible!

    Yep. String him along for an email or two and talk of the item will completely cease. His secretary or 'agent' will accidentally make the check out for more than the price and the focus will shift to instructions on how to return the overage amount with a small 'deduction' for your troubles.

    I played along with one last year on a lens I was trying to sell. Took it to the point of actually receiving the check, which looked real enough to fool most people, but there were some obvious signs of fakery.

    the entire premise is based on 'greed makes people blind'.
