My buddy James was trying to sell his Marshall guitar amp on craigslist.
Someone tried to steal the amp from him using a fairly common craigslist scam. The person contacted James as an “out of state buyer” offering to buy the amp, but only if James would accept an out of state check. The buyer claimed he was going to send a moving company to pickup the amp.
The answer to any inquiry like this is “Hell no!” (Or your favorite angry Samuel L. Jackson quote)
If James had gone through with this he would have been left with a bad check and no amp.
Practice safe computing with a healthy dose of skepticism on craigslist.
