Does this seem like a scam to anyone?

Scam...I get these types of emails all the time from people with yahoo or hotmail accounts trying to buy random equipment and wanting to pay with Mastercard... We just ignore them all...

Ah hell, have some fun with him like i did last time this happened to me. I got the check, surprisingly it was for $1500 more, he asked me to send him a check back for $1200 and I could keep the rest. I dug through my financials from 15 yrs ago and came up with an old checkbook on an account that had been closed for at least 10 yrs from another state and sent him a $1000 check from that account. He probably got all excited, ran to the bank and cashed it, I would have loved to see his face when it bounced! I had to send it overseas so i wasnt too worried about writing a bad check, and kept a copy of the bad check he sent in case it ever came back around.
