Got an response to my SAAB ad that seems 'interesting'. Wonder if it is a set up. Follows:

Hi Joe,
How are you doing? Thanks for the email and pics. I'm willing to pay $1500 (without shipping). Right now i'm out of town on business and won't be able to see the vehicle. You don't have worry about shipping, i'll handle that. Pls consider it sold to me and pls don't entertain other offers. This will be similar to a local pickup.

As for payment, I will instruct my accountant to issue you a cheque of $4,825 (Drawn on a U.S. Bank) as i am not in the U.S. at the moment. Once you receive the cheque i will like you to deduct your payment of $1500 and then you will have to wire the excess amount to my shipper via MoneyGram or Western union transfer the moment you receive the cheque so that the Shipper can immediately come for collection of the vehicle.

Pls let me know if i can trust you in wiring the excess funds to my shipper immediately you receive the cheque, as you know it is not easy to trust people nowadays.

Note: my shipper will be picking up some other Automobiles and Heavy Machineries for me in the U.S., including the vehicle i am buying from you, this is why his shipping fee is that much. This way you will be free from shipping hastles and stress, as my shipper will come over to your place for collection and shipping of the vehicle once he receives the funds.

And if you are okay with this way of payment, pls mail me your full details (Name, address and phone numbers) so that payment can be sent to you.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Bill.
