A little help with craigslist!

Ok I have my propane injection kit on craigslist. I had a guy email me this.

Kindly let me know if the above listed item is still available for sale. like i said i will like to buy this item so please do withdraw the advert from Craigslist. I will also like you to know that i will be payingvia check.I will need you to provide me with the following informationto facilitate the mailing of the check.

1.Name to be on the check
2.Home address
3.Telephone

**I will like you to know that you will not be responsible forshipping i will have my mover come over as soon as you have cashed thecheck**
Regards

It just sounds funny to me for some reason..... Its not like he could scam me for my kit if I had already cashed the check. It is weird....
