I put a bike I had up for sale yesterday and than I get these emails below. It does not sound right and I do not like the guys verbage. The guy is not even asking about the bike, its details - it sounds very odd.

It sounds like one of those Nigerian email scams.What do you guys think?

They are scams -- You will deposit the check and your account will be credited, then the cashiers check/money order will bounce when presented by your bank to the issuing bank a little while later and your account will be debited leaving you a very unhappy camper -- for overseas sales direct wire transfers and paypalk are the only way to go.... or cash!!
