There are various buying scams in circulation on the web, many involving a buyer (frequently from outsied North America) who is, for various reasons, unable to receive the item by mail or pick it up personally. Instead, they inform you that someone will be sending you a cashier's check for an amount much larger than your asking price, instruct you to cash the check and after doing so, send all but the purchase amount back to them. Then, they or their agent will come by and personally pick up the item. Unfortunately, the checks are almost certainly worthless, and if you follow their instructions, will be out the entire amount, and still will not have sold your item. Communicate with your buyer; ask a few questions.
