Full asking price no haggle..
Bad English in the email and yet from Ireland
Too many factors , pay cheque in .. pay driver ? take advert off ..
Sounds to good to be true and we know what that means ..
Personally I would say no ..

Tell him to send his address and you will deliver it to him FOC saves all the hassle and it doesn't sound like you will get the money any way. lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! 

Not going to say what national the wording leads me to but its not Irish. affraid

If you fancy a laugh you could accept the check and give the courier the bums rush on pickup. Or you might enquire with the police re them investigating the delivery address the courier will have.
Though these ideas are only if you lack things to amuse yourself with, we all know what this sort of scam is.

Re the Destiny I'd say don't be so shy not showing the awning. There can be some right lash up awning options but Carl's attempt looked quite good and it will have more space. If you're short of photos and can't find where the awning photos were shown: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Did you not get on with your Destiny? Most people list with Preloved you mention you listed with pre-used.

I'll have it ...... if your giving it away affraid 

Only joking but if you put your faith in that email you may as well give it away. Twisted Evil you want cash on collection, no couriers or dodgy cheques.

Its odd that he says he will be paying by bank draft and will wait for the cheque to clear. Dandies do seem to be in short supply in Ireland and it is not eadsy to get over here to collect one. He says he will wait for the cheque to clear.

Only prob I can see is that he will have your name and address and could send a heavy mob to collect it when you're not there. Very strange.

Don't touch it with a barge pole - complete scam I'm afraid. The same person is trying the same trick with several users on the UKCC website.

I cant remember how it works, but i think he's after your bank details wouldn't be surprised if somewhere along the line he wants your bank sort code etc: Pete

Had much the same offer (from Ireland) when selling a car recently. When I responded along the lines of "Cash Only" from the shipper he went silent and I haven't heard a single word since from him. It's a silly scam these days as it's so well known.
