I'm selling a pickup and he wants me to do the same.  Problem--I'm a cop and see this kind of scam alot.  It starts out sounding a little too easy.  If he is having it shipped, why do I need to contact his carrier?

I recd this in response to car ad I have on craiglist in Los Angeles: Thanks i got all information i needed about the AD,  since you can assure me the goodness of  it, i will like to add $200 for your asking price. I am presently located in lowa and we have a private shipping company that will handle everything after you have your money in hand. As there are too many scams on internet as regards buying and selling with large bogus account, my mode of payment will be via electronic cashier check. Echeck is simple, secured, legal, fast and it is setup to eliminate the stress of  putting check in mail for days. you must received cash from your bank before they will come to pick it up, All you just need to do is to get a business check paper for $20 and ready to pay $99 for the software download. Once you have the business check paper  i will send the secured link to print out the electronic check to your email for printing. You can then print and proceed to clear and cash the check at your bank. The cost of procuring the business check paper  and the the money you will pay for the software will be added to the bottom price at the cost of $200 for both. you can get business check paper at office depot, officemax, staples or any stationary store wal-mart  shopping moll around. I will be waiting to read from you soon. get back to me as soon as you get the check paper and. you are not the only one i asked from, and first come first serve, get the material today, to make it faster.  you would have not need to pay for the software download, due to the high response they are getting of peaople using insticheck for fraud purposes, that is why you will need to pay for downloading, for safety purpose. Kindly delete the advert of this item if my mode of payment is accepted.I will await your email asap.

I received a first on two vehicles I had listed. The wording of both e-mails were almost identical which arroused my curosity. The only difference was the two different names on the e-mail account. John Paul and Smith Williams. I sent back a short note giving a contact phone number for the vehicles to be seen. I received back an e-mail almost exactly worded as the one received by Railshot on 3/30/08 which is listed here. Suspicions were further raised and I tried the phone number in Google and found this site. Thanks for letting us post these and expose the scam.

This 914-595-4296 number obviously isn't fooling anybody. Some criminals are to smart for their own good.

I was wondering if someone could help me determine if this e-mail is a scam. I posted a massage table on Craig's List:

Hello,
Thanks for your prompt reply.I really appreciate your detailed breakdown and frankness on this.Unfortunately, Im on my way to India on an official trip(I'm a marketing Executive) and wont be back for another two weeks, I would have come to inspect the item personally... Im taking your word for true on It though .
Im okay with the price, I think it worth it anyway. If you'd like to know, Im relocating to the UK soon and I'm trying to gather some good stuff for my new abode. Im buying yours amongst others,quickly! before someone else grabs it.So, I'll arrange to send you payment ASAP. However, I'll have to notify my shipper who's helping me move my stuff from the US ,to get set for the pickup of the item from your place as I MIGHT be delayed in India depending on how things goes.
Thanks.
PS: In the mean time, kindly get back to me with your information including your name to write on the check,contact address and your phone# so I can get certified check prepared and have it sent out to you ASAP....

I'm concerned because I keep hearing people say don't trust them if they say they use shippers. I just want to have other people's opinions. This is my first time dealing with online selling so I have no idea. Thanks.
