Default Someone wanting to buy my Heads???

This was in my messages on RJ classified. Seems alittle wierd or am I just paranoid? My Ad #1550337 has multiple items but he refers to it as just one.

(My name is Tony Bagwell jnr,I have a client who is interested in buying your item,he informed me to ask you if the item is still in good condition and that the payment method will be remitted via a cashiers check or a money order ,the cashiers check that will be sent to you will include the money for the sales of your item and the shippers fees for organizing a home pick up service. If you agree to assist in this capacity kindly send your full name address and your contact phone number and price.to this email address [email protected] Waiting to read from you today, Best Regards.)

I wouldn't respond. It sounds like they want all your info so they can scam you in some way. If you do respond only do it through RJ. I know if I wanted something from you I would call you myself and not have someone else contact you. JMO

I reported it to RJ. I was curious if anyone else had received anything similiar. Does RJ report back to you on something like this?
