It is obviously a scam, but just to add credibility to this post, I checked it out here at scam central, verifying that it is a scam.

Someone should do a linguistic analysis of these scams. The adherence to common American English seems to be increasing. I wonder if they are hooked up to one of those on line services that will write your term paper for ten bucks.

    Interesting. I read this and immediately thought it was written by someone for whom English was a second language. It may be a little closer to standard American English than your average Nigerian scam, but don’t you think they could hire a native English speaker to write the pitch for a mass-email scam campaign?

    More info on this: Your job is to the recipient of the payments from Ebay scams and the like. You’re deposit the checks you receive, take your cut, and send the money on.

    Oh, and hope no pissed off would-be laptop buyer shows up at your house with gimp suit and a barrel. It happened(well, minus the bit about the gimp suit) to some poor mentally-impaired guy just last week.
