Trying to sell our Karastan rug and got an email from an interested buyer on CL. After a couple emails this is what he sent me:

I am okay with the price of this item and the condition of items and
we will like to make an outright purchase of this particular item
immediately because we are in need of it and we want to get it as soon
as possible, I anticipate that a cashier check or certified check
will be sent to you via express mail or ups or Fedex as the mode of
payment, concerning the pickup, i will be responsible for that, where
the mover will come for the pick up at your location upon your
confirmation of receiving the payment and i want you to remove this
item from the ad now. So i will send the payment which will include
the pick up charges, in which you will make payable to the mover via
money gramm immediately after you have receive the payment and you
will be compensated with $50 extra for your running around to the
money gram outlet to avoid the delay. And I would really love to come
for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible.
and I will like you to provide the following payment information as
soon as possible:
full name ...........................................
full home address (physical)..................
City................................................
state................................................
zip code..............................................
tel#..................................................As soon as this
is provided i will let you know when payment is mailed out and i will
update you on when you will receive the payment and give you
instructions on what to do....thanks and i hope we handle this in good
faith.

Very total scam. And it's just like the cake scams. Like I would pay their mover to pick up something they're buying.
