Unless yu can do the deal in person, consider it a scam. At least that's the way I think.. Internet is too easy to rip people off.

This is not
As bad as the email that I recieved the other day... Check this out!

Good day,

I hope you are having a good day and this message meets you in a good mood.
I am Tan Seng Chew, and I am an employee of one of the top financial
institutions here in Singapore.

Please allow me to give you a brief picture of what I have in mind,In my
position as safe deposit manager at my bank, I have become privy to a lot of
unclaimed deposits and Accounts and I have particularly monitored one of such
accounts for years now, and can comfortably state that the account is there
for us to convert to our personal usage, hence my email to you.

This is a very straight forward transaction and I would say the funds are at
my disposal right now, if and only If you can pledge your concrete commitment
to assist me convert this fund to our personal usage *Immediately, all I need
from you is to stand as the original depositor and follow my instructions.

Please get this very clear, nobody knows about the existence of this money
and if anything happens to me today the funds will revert to my Bank's or
Singapore Government coffers; this is why we need to act now.
Please understand I am ready to share this money with you for your
assistance, I do know that I have not given you a clear picture and amount
involved, but when I get your reply I will be more revealing.

Your immediate response will be appreciated, via my email address below. ||

Best Regards
Tan Seng Chew

Definitely a scam, I was trying to sell a guitar amp (still am) on CL and I received several emails which are word for word exactly what your "buyer" emailed you. Any time there's a whole bunch of complications in how they want to aquire the item, just ignore it.
