Looks more like a machine translation to me, or someone with rough English language skills. It looks like he's asking about defects, wanted more detailed pictures, and was seeing if you'd budge on the price- scammers don't ask for a lower price because they don't intend to pay anyway, and don't really care about minor condition problems because they're getting it for free.

There don't appear to be any red flags in it, like-

-wanting to pay extra and having you refund the difference

-asking for ultra fast shipping regardless of cost

-paying with a 'cashier's check' from a bank you've never heard of, isn't in your area
