I got something exactly like this the other day for a large 24" printer that I listed on Craigslist. I kept telling the guy cash only and then he pulls this I am not located in the US and I want the item and I will send you a cashiers check, blah blah blah. Same stuff exactly the guy wanted proof of ownership, address, etc.

I once posted an ad on craigslist for needing a room mate. I get this one response from some African country, via e-mail. I decide to play along. They sent me a "check" for a ridiculous amount over what I was asking for.
It looked real,to some degree, from some "US bank." They wanted to pay for 3 months, and then have me send the "extra money A.K.A the balance" ASAP in the form of a personal check or to a US ADDRESS ( PO BOX)..
Of course I didn't think about cashing it, as I was told I would be held responsible for the fake check. BEWARE!
