This indeed look like a scam but FYI a certified check, if legitimate, is like cash, that is, unless regular checks, funds have been already withdrawn and are ready to be cashed by the name listed. I am not sure how the scam works, they may lure you into giving them money or the goods at some point, but the check is only a gimmick imho.

I got a similar message (see below). It is unclear to me as to how the scam would work. Definitely suspicious that the person wants to lose the money of an overnight delivery of the check. What exactly are they hoping to achieve? Thanks for your prompt response, actually I am sorry that I could not come to pick the item in person, I actually just had a change in my work schedule but I believe am ok with the condition as seen on the advert as well as the price stated. I am ready to make instant purchase with my mode of payment would being a Certified Bank Check via Postal service Express mail or USPS overnight delivery. I have my own shipper that will come over to pick up the item from your place as soon as you receive check, cashed it and have your money in hand, I promise you everything will go smoothly as I would like to have it before my son wedding anniversary which comes in a week. Kindly get back to me with your *Full Name *Full mailing Address, City, State, zip-code *Cell Phone Number and Agreed price. As soon as this is provided, payment will be overnight to you and I will let you know once mailed out with tracking number sent to you. I will also add an additional $50 for holding it for me till the Check gets to you and make sure you mark the posting has sold. Thanks and I hope we handle this in good faith while waiting to hear from you. Have a Wonderful Sunday
