Hi, yes, it's a scam, www.q-check.com is a legit site, it is often used by scammers, they will expect victims to print of the cheques via the q-check site and cash them, it's cheaper for the scammer that way, rather than him getting fake cheques made and having to send them via courier.
The scammer has no interest in buying an old antique machine, he just wants the money from the overpayment he will put on the cheque
