I send back:
I am surprised people still fall prey to scam artist like you.
Have a good day sir.
I will not be selling my TV to you.
then, I start having some fun:
When are you coming to get the TV?
Thank you for your prompt action on this matter.
he replies back:
As soon as the check clears, my shipper will come for the pickup.
I apologize , this is for local pickup only.
I will not deal with your shippers.
You have to pick up the TV in person.
Bring a big truck because the TV is big.
It dont matter if it dont work now does it?
Write me back asap please.
I got a blind guy who might want to buy it. ( the sound still works so I think I might be good!)
Let me know

I prefer to resond thusly:
I have entertained your most generous offer, but now is my counter-offer. Instead of a check, please send your oldest virgin daughter. I will have an expert examine the daughter to certify that she is indeed a true virgin. If not, I shall send her head back to you via Federal Express. Please forward pictures of daughter, if she is ugly or underage I shall send the pictures back smeared with hog feces and the deal is off.
Looking forward to doing business with you"
