    Hey, I'm in a bit of trouble ... a friend of mine is trying to sell his car and he posted an ad on a famous mobile site (doesn't matter which one, but if you're curious it's mobile.de)

    anyways, someone contacted him and told him he's going to pay him via Scheck (I don't know what that is) and even agreed to send him some extra money to reserve the car. This guy was the single person to respond to his ad and seemed very interested in the car.

    my questions are:

    1) which is the safest method to perform the sale ?
    2) has anyone had experince with scheck ?

    Here's the attached email he sent my friend:

    I think what he meant was check-a bank certified check...I'll tell you what I think, this deal has the setting of scam. I bet the shipping destination will be Africa. The check will certainly clear but your bank will ask for a refund in the future (because the check is fake). Tell him you'd prefer bank to bank transfer so he can cash his check and transfer to your designated account...he will never agree.
