Yep - it's a Craig's List scammer. They send you a fake cashier's check for more than the purchase amount, then ask you to refund the overpayment. Plenty of info on 800notes (30 pages!) regarding this scammer.

When can I come check it out?Shoot me an email back as soon as possible please or you can leave me a message here on my phone number (301) 741-4871,I'm speech disabled though, remember to leave your name and email address when you call.PS: - You can just reply this email, I'm always with my computer

This is a scam to part you with money and property. DO NOT RESPOND TO THE EMAIL.
