Default New scam approach?

I've bought and sold on RJ, Craigslist, and several other sites, and thought I had seen every scam out there. There apparently, is a new approach, that puzzles me. I get a text wanting to know my final price, and it wreaks of a scammer. When I respond, they ask if I will accept a certified check, and they will wait until it clears before they pick the item up. Of course, they want my address to send the check. I know it's a scam, but not sure what there objective is. Maybe to get my address?. They could find that through other means, so I don't think that is it. I played along with one, just to see the outcome, but never received the check or any further communication. Is anyone, here familiar with this approach?
