I posted my minivan on the internet and got a similar email. Then I got a phone call since my phone number was in the add. About halfway through the phone call the interpretor cut the call off because it match the description of a scam running around. It was very odd - so I think you are right, it's a scam.

I always post in my for sale ads CASH ONLY!

Had somebody try to give me a cashier's check for a car I was selling, I told them that TCF bank was open Sundays too and we could go there and get CASH....all of a sudden there was something he didn't like about the car...

Everything I post on Craigslist gets the famous Nigerian response. The last one was for a Nextel i30, that I know damn well doesn't work in Nigeria.

If I'm bored, I lead them on. I'll give them the # to my throwaway, and a neighbors address. I've only had one call, and couldn't understand anything he was saying.

they like cell phones and cars.
