Possible scam

I posted a classified for a Necky Kayak last week.

I had an inquiry that seemed odd .Someone from out of state, wanting the boat sight unseen.

The grammar was incorrect and it sounded very similar to a scam that was perpetrated on an older friend .

A buyer for something from someone out of state that would be sending a truck to pick the item up.

Then some promise to pay and to my friend the request to cash a check for someone else and pay for another item that was also being picked up at another location.

I didn't contact this person again after I suspected where it was headed but did initially send some photos of the kayak.

So just an FYI.

This was THE ONLY place I listed the kayak !
