Here is an email I got in response to my ad here on the forums
I have sold alot of stuff so have recieved hundreds like it, I can see a scam a mile away in an email, this one is easy and normally I dont even take the time to respond, But this one was so bad it is funny.
To those unfamiliar with the scammers, if I replied to the questions the next email would be for my address so they could send me a cashiers check for around 2k more then the selling price, and a request to forward the 2k to their shipper, the check would come back bad in a few weeks and I would be out the 2k....
I thought some might get a kick out this one as it is so bad as to be laughable.

advertised 1979 24' Excella motorhome for sell .So I
picked interest in buying it, moreso with the full
description that was attached to the advert ,kindly
get back to me with your selling price. Also i will
like to know your prefared mode of payment

certified personal cheque, i will like to know it's
present condition kindly tell me if the AVION as
ever been involve in any form of accident ? If yes,
Don't essitate to tell me the affected part. Your
fast responce will highly be appreciated.
Here is my Response
Alex it is so odvious you are a scam it is laughable.
Did you even read your own email?
Sure I will take a bad check, and then I would of course be happy to send the excess funds to your shipper.
Better yet why dont I just give you some cash?
Go **** yourself, I see right thru you.
People like you should be shot on site.
