Does this sound strange to you? They asked me nothing about the item.


Hello,
      Thanks for the prompt response to my mail. I will be buying it
from you. so please kindly withdraw the advert from the web now.
i would have love to come down for a look but am busy in my office.
i promise everything will go smoothly.
and i don't mind giving you $50 in order to delete the advert from the web.
Please to be informed that i will  pay you with a certified bank check
or cashier check and
once you have the check cashed at your bank then i will arrange for
the pick up at your place..I will need the following details to write
the payment  today and end the transaction tomorrow you will be
receiving the payment by ups.


Name to be on the check_______________
Home address or office address________
City__________________________________
State_________________________________
Zip Code______________________________
Cell phone #__________________________


And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be mailed to you and
i will let you know when its mailed out. Thanks and i hope we handle
this in good faith while waiting to hear from you.

It's a scam...... Now a days you get more replies with scams then an actual person wanting your item(s).
