That is a scam.

They will send a false cheque, for a bigger amount than the price of the car, and they will ask you to send them back the excess of money.

Just stop the communication with them, and don't be worried because they will not move a finger for you.

Cheers

Looks like an overpayment scam, where they send you a fake check for say, $1000 more, and have you send them the balance before the check bounces and you get hit by the bank for full repayment and/or arrested for giving them a bad check.

Welcome!
You're right to be suspicious. It's a scam. Commonly known as the overpayment scam. You'll be asked to pay the shipper by Western Union, and sometime later, you bank will tell you the cheque was bogus. Leaving you with a much depleted bank account, if not overdrawn.
I certainly wouldn't buy a car without seeing it. Would anyone?
Don't attempt to bait him as he has your real life details. Just tell him, that you've sold the car locally

Just a P.S. for anyone who receives this type of scam....if you've money in your account, a refund cheque to a scammer could be paid out of your account before their cheque bounces.

And people sometimes misunderstand that, just 'cos the bank has credited your account with the scammer's cheque and allowed you to draw on the money, doesn't mean that they are guaranteeing that the cheque has cleared and is good......it can still bounce, sometimes much later for a foreign cheque.
