I knew this was too good to be true, so I googled it and found similar results on Google. Here is an email they sent to me today:

Hello,

My name is Laura Albright, I\'m emailing you regarding the Yamaha C 3 Conservatory Series Grand Piano that I have for sale. The instrument is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no dings, special marks whatsoever. The piano has been gently played, very well cared for, measures 6\' with classic grand piano design and desirable satin ebony finish. The satin ebony finish is hard to find on a Yamaha piano. The high gloss ebony finish is much more common. The standard piano bench is included. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. I\'m selling the piano because my 21\'s years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee coming to our home at his little brother birthday. It was his piano and it brings me bad memories and that\'s the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. The price that I\'m asking is $2,000.00
Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .

Thank you,
Laura and Michael Albright
