    Yeah I would think it is a scam. Who in the world offers MORE than the selling price just to “reserve” an item for sale. Most folks are going to say, I’ll send you a deposit of $X and give you the rest when I pick it up.

    I’ve heard of this before….a friend was listing an item and ran into this. It has something to do with having an item picked up, I think that way they can say they didn’t receive it and cancel the cheque.

    Only ever ever ever accept cash and Paypal.

    I never accept any form of payment other than PayPal for online sales. If someone wants to physically pick it up I accept cold hard cash only.

    No checks, no unverified credit purchases, no exceptions.

    It’s a scam! I used to work at a bank and we used to hear similar scenarios.

    If it smells fishy  – don’t bother with it even if it isn’t fish!
