    Yea get used to it using craigslist, I get a email like that everyday. Its super annoying right, half the people email me about my items then I respond and they never email back, between sorting thru these scams and people who don't email me back ever I hate CL. The check will be fake, you will be the one to get into trouble first. I usually send back a email with a very disturbing picture of my feces =D

    Even replying to a scammer's email, even if it is with a disturbing picture, is a bad idea because the scammer then has your email address, and can/will use it in future scams. It's best to just delete the email.

    also avoid opening any links they send you. it's a good chance there's a virus/keylogger in there
