 Help is this a scam

I have my machine forsale on this site in classifieds. This is the second email I got, the first was saying he wanted the machine. Is this a scam, I don't know why the Western Union money, but I can't see where any imfo he asked for could be used against me. "here is the email"Thanks for any reply

I have recieved your messge,I need the photos scanned & attached to my mailbox... Ok i 'll have my partner who is owning me send you a U.S Postal Money Order/U.S Certified cashier Check of $41,900 dollars for my payment & plus my shipment ...I 'll handle the shipping my self. All you have to do is to minus your $36.000.00 & send the remaining excess fund's via western union to my shipping agent so as they can come immediately they recieve the fund's for pickup out from your location..

Get back to me with all the information's needed below,
(1). The name you want issued on the check,
(2).Your full postal mailing address &
(3).Together with your contact home/cell phone number..

Reply me immediately,

This sounds hokey to me. There is no reason why you should be sending $5,900 in excess funds to anyone. I would stay away from this.

This kind of scam is common on eBay for large ticket items. Postal money orders and cashiers checks can easily be forged, and if you deposit them you may find out two weeks later that they bounced leaving you responsible for the missing funds.

IMHO this sounds like a shell game. I'd have to agree and stay away from this one.

So no one picks up the tractor but I'm out 5900. when they discover it's a forged check. I emailed him back and asked for his shipper and his name and number and then we will talk, he pays the shipper and me seprate. So maybe I won't hear from him again.

Archdean, no offence taken, that was my big question too. If you are in such a hurry, pay and arrange the shipping yourself and take the machine when the check clears or better yet, pay cash, although I would have that checked at the bank too.

After that guy gave an introduction like that I would be hesitant to accept anything from him. Like Ken says - you could be getting a forged certified check - you hand him the tractor - and you are out $36,000. It could take months before forgeries are found out.

It sounds like we are all pretty much in agreement here. I doubt that you will hear back from this guy but, if you do - extreme safeguards are in order if you decide to gingerly go forward. It sounds as if you know the proper precautions to take.

Let me be a bit stronger in my statement. Do NOT conduct any more business with this person.
