At some time or another be it buying, selling or just surfing the Internet you are going to encounter a scam of one type or another. From your supposed friendly bank asking you to verify your account security details or someone asking you  (in poorly written English) to part with your beloved 7 in exchange for a forged bankers draft.
The procedure is the same for all these scams ignore them!!!

If you are selling something and you do not know/trust the seller then part with no goods until you are sure you have the money. There have been occurrences of money seemingly safe in your bank account only to vanish once they have possession of you goods.

Whilst they are inevitably normally so obvious to not be taken seriously some scammers are clever than others.

Here is some more reading material of which there is plenty available on the Internet.

To prove they are not all stupid or obvious

A friend of a friend was last year selling a Hummer on Autotrader.
He was contacted by a seller who came & viewed ended up buying with a Bankers Draft.
Now the buyer appeared respectable had no end of legitimate looking identification Drivers License Passport etc
.
Fine so far
Seller - "No sorry, you cannot have the vehicle until the draft has cleared"
Buyer - "OK then if you can telephone meto arrange collection when the funds have cleared"

Still fine so far
Following morning seller looks out of the window --- Oh shit, uninsured Hummer no where to be seen.  Sometime during the night it had been removed and was on the first ferry out of Dover (CCTV) driven to  Lithuania to be delivered to a Russian buyer.
He did get it back after several trips to Lithuania and a few nasty encounters.

Never mind "Caveat Emptor"   Sellers Beware
