In reference to your on-line placed advert, I will like to know if this item is still for sale and If it is, is the condition still remain as described in the advert?
Kindly include your bottom price. I will be waiting for your response at your earliest convenience.
General rule of thumb: If they don't mention what you're selling, if their English seems forced and awkward, and if they use that combination of "bottom price / as described", they are scammers. Don't even waste your time, unless you want to mess with them. The next email you'll get is about a check that's on its way, which will be for over the amount, and you pay them back the difference between your item and their fraudulent cashier's check.
You can always make them send the fake check, make like everything looks great, then ask them for a "good faith" prepayment of $10 via Western Union before you cash the check and send them them the difference. Then go buy yourself a twelve pack, and send them a pic of you, drinking their beer.
