    Get a phone # and a address, Give him/her a call and just don't ship till you have the green in your hand. Make sure any type of payment clears the band.

    I can tell you now, it's a scam. Next the guy is going to ask if you can send the bass to Nigeria.
  4. The English is bad, the name of the bass is always in brackets, doesn't sound too normal to me. Get his number and make sure, if he gives you a check, that the check passes and everything and the money is officially in your hand before sending it away.

    Almost everything involving a cashier's check for classified goods is a scam.

    Tell him you can only sell it to him if he joins your church, Holy Church of The Order of The Red Breast. Have him send a photo of himself in the ceremonial garb:
