Hello,
I am an agent interested in immediate purchase of your item.After several consideration over the advert placed on the website,my client has really shown interest in it and would really want to issue the payment in form of Money order/Cashiers Check at the BUY IT NOW PRICE.Will you be accepting a money order/Cashiers Check? The money order/cashiers check that will be drawn by my client would include the cost for shipping this item to my client and my commission would be included on the same Money Order/Cashiers Check.We shall solely be responsible for the shipment of the item. Please contact me asap via email for further questions as regards this transaction if you really show willingness in selling this item asap.Thank You and I am expecting your response asap.

Thanks

Scam scam scam

See highlighted portion -- they fish for more from the scam by "paying you extra" and asking you to remit that portion to the scammer / "agent."

Of course, the money order was printed at home, and it's a fake...
