Does this guy sound legit?

So i put my beer light on craigslist. I get these messages today. Sounds fishy to me. What do you guys think?



(1/2)is your Budweiser - Bud Light Rotating Beer light - $175 (Altamont, IL) still available for sale?kindly get back to me ASAP ***Larry


(2/2)Cole***


It sure is.


(1/3)My name is Larry Cole, I'm sorry ,i would have loved to come myself and see it myself but i'm sorry I won't be able to come see it any


(2/3)longer because i am already on a business trip.I still want it anyway if you could sell it to me. I'm willing to pay your asking price


(3/3)and add an extra $50 if you have it sold to me.I will be sending you my payment via a certified check and you will not be responsible


When do you get back from your trip?


I dont know when i would be back from trip because i am here for a contract


I prefer cash only.


I can only make the payment via check

Tell him to come pick it up in person. If he doesn't have the cash, shoot him.

Just so you know it is against forum rules to list an item for sale here and on craigslist


That said...I've gotten checks before..they just don't get their stuff until the check is cashed AND cleared. That said, if he is offering MORE than you're asking it's a scam

Thanks, id really hate to sell it for any less, i gave alot more than that for it. But now im going for more of a motorcycle type theme in the garage rather than a beer theme.
