I posted an ad online to sell a chair. Received a mobile request if item was still available. I responded yes it was for cash and carry only. Received the following email which is obvious scam...

Hello,

Thanks for the response.I am okay with the condition and price of the item and am willing to add extra $20 so you could keep it in my favor. I\'ll be paying with a Check via next day delivery.

I\'ll be responsible for the pick-up and the movers/pick up money will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable movers to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.

I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible. kindly get back to me with your full name and
address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment to you.
I believe this is based on trust.

Thanks
