Fishy AutoTrader offer i recieve

Here is the offer i recieved, and have heard things of this nature before being a scam...what do you think?

I received you reply to my request on your Ad.I
concluded with my client concerning your vehicle after
presenting him with the pictures i downloaded from the
Ad site.He instructed me to proceed with the
transaction at the agreed price of $11,600.00.Due to
his office schedule;he asked me to inform you that his
agent will be coming for the pickup after you have
received your payment.He asked me to relate this
arrangement to you,that he will be paying you with a
cashier check of $17,600.00 which was an earlier
cancelled order to be made to him,and due to company's
policy that only one refund payment is allowed on a
cashier check,you are to deduct the cost of the
vehicle $11,600.00 and refund the agent the balance of
$6,000.00
Please this money is to mobilise the agent do his
services for my client and pay for his expenses during
transportation of the vehicle to my client.Please you
are to confirm this and send me your NAME,ADDRESS and
PHONE NUBMER so that payment will reach you.You are to
keep the vehicle,title paper and other necessary
document ready for signing as soon as you receive the
payment so that arrangement for the pickup will
commence.I will be waiting for your reply with the
information.
My regards

Steve

Yeah I know this pretty well, I bid on a few angels on eBay awhile back and the ones I didn't win I suddenly got an email telling me "I'm selling blah blah blah angel with this this this this this for $400, I need to get rid of it asap blah blah blah just send the money to me"

I replied saying "Go to Hell, it's only $500 and I really need the money."

Tell them you only accept cash, but you have a friend that will cash their check in Monopoly money for no fee.





... And then say you cannot accept Monopoly money.
