Type of a scam Online Purchase
I posted an ad on Craigslist trying to sell my car and the next day I got a text message from this number wanting to buy it. So I gave this phone number my address for his freind to come pick it up and he sent me this message " You will receive the certified bank check within 3 to 5 working days,the check covers your funds shipping and insurance via the personal shipper this is because the amount i placed with my company is a refund for a cancelled order due to this the excess funds after deducting your funds has been placed and will serve as payment for the shipment, so once you receive and clear check at your bank you will deduct your funds $1000 from the $1880 and send the difference to the Shipping Co. C.E.O so as to make them prepare every necessary document for the shipment and arrange for it to be pickup .Get back to me once you receive this message."
