Does this sound like a scam? Got this in via convo regarding a very pricey item in my shop.
"I saw your posting on online and i will like to tell you that i am interested in buying it from you if its still available for sale. ...
I will be glad if you have a picture to show to me and i will like to let you know that i will be paying you by check and i am going to handle the shipment myself by pick up after i have send you the check and have your money with you, then the shipping company will come and pick up the item from you. Get back to me if you accept paying you by check and if not pls don't bother to email or waste my time... you can contact me on my phone 814-746-4469"

Yep sounds like a scam.
They can see the picture already in the listing, so you shouldnt have to send another one, sounds like a scripted letter normally doing the rounds on craigslist.
(Also you shouldnt have posted their phone number in the forums, sorry)
