Doesn't that seem like another craigslist scam?

I recieved that email, when the author saw my posting:

"
Thanks for the swift response, just to let you know that am okay with
the condition and price of the item, am ready for its purchase and my
form of payment will be by sending you Check via UPS/FEDEX next day
delivery.

I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will
be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up
company to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your
location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be
moved alongside with yours.

I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work
frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might want
to have a good look. Please do get back to me with the following

1.Your full name
2.Your mailing address(Physical as Ups does not deliver to P.O.Box}
3.Your phone number.

I appreciate you holding this for me. Please delete the posting as I
am definitely buying it from you and it would be sad
for me to have the payment in the mail only to be
informed of the its sale also am deaf and will like to be contacted via
email.*Looking forward to receiving this information, so the payment
can be made out asap


Thanks and God bless"

Yeah, scam. They even might actually send you a check. It will eventually bounce, they'll have the goods and you'll have nothing.

thanks for your answers guys. Looks like a template to me, that this scammer is sending to everyone... "God bless you"...

not a good sign when they dont mention the product or posting, and deaf people have a proxy that speak for them on the phone (ive spoken to a few of them on the phone at work)
