Watch for this scam. Most already know about

I have sold several bikes on this site and others in the past 5 years and have always had some fool like this one below trying to play me. This below email is one of the many ways the scammers try to fool people that have little experience selling over the internet.

Here is the email I have been sent :

"I am interested in your item and i will be paying you through Cashier
Check but i have to tell you what i do i am an agent and i deal on
commission for a living i get whatever my client need and make sure it
gets to the destination in a short while......................for
example when my clients need anything they will contact me and i will
find it for them and i contact the seller and the seller give me a
price and i add a little on it to cover the shipping damages and so on
and including profit for myself .......................so please i
need your total honesty to do this kindly get back to me with a list
of what you have for sale as i have a lot of client and this will help
me a lot and once you receive the check kindly take the check to the
bank.It will get cleared in the next 2 day you will deduct your money
for the item and send the remaining balance to my store keeper through
WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER for him to schedule the pickup of the
item ok.so if this is ok by you kindly get back to me with your final
asking price and your full name and full contact address so i can go
ahead with your payment thanks "
