Definitely a scam. I had a similar thing happen when I was selling a toolbox for $400 on CL. The guy said he traveled a lot and would send me a check with $20 extra (inconvenience fee because I wanted cash only). Said he would mail the check and pick up the box after a few days. I told him to show up with cash and meet me somewhere (other than my home) to make the exchange. He still insisted on a check because he said his bank was in Florida where his home was but he traveled around for work. I asked him if he ever heard of an ATM? and told him to show up with cash or don't show up at all! To my "amazement", that was the last I heard of him.
So yes, I would say that is definitely a scam. Probably a cut and paste scam right off of the internet.
