Craigslist scam

I received a similar offer. Not sure why they would bother with a $50 TV on Craigslist, but here is the email:
I'm glad it's still for sale.and i would have love to come over and
inspect it,but I'm going on a vacation to London, since you said it's
in good condition, I will instruct my assistant to prepare and mail
you your payment which I'm sure you will get it in about 4 - 6
business days. I'll add $20 extra for the delay. Check/Money Order is
the means I can pay you with. If this is acceptable by you, Send me
your info i.e full name, mailing address and your phone number so
payment can be mail out immediately.I will also make arrangement for
pick-up which will be after you must have received and cashed the
Check/Money Order. Also i would appreciate if you can send me more
pictures of the item,and kindly take the posting off craigslist today
and consider it sold to me.We'll proceed on the shipment once the
payment is delivered to you.
Awaiting your Response Thanks
God Bless YOU...

This is a scam. You will receive a money order but it will be for a lot more than you were asking for. Then they will contact you to explain that they made a mistake on the amount. They will ask you to go ahead and cash the check, wait a few days for it to clear and then send them the difference but you can keep a frw hundred for the trouble.
The problem is that the money order is fake but it will take a few weeks or months for that to be found. Then your bank will take the money out of your account. You lose.
I like to play along with them and see how many times I can get them to send me money orders. When they ask if I received it I say that I never got it. My record is I got one jerk to send me three money orders. I cost them about $30 in shipping plus whatever it costs them to make the money orders. LOL

A word of caution. In some parts of the USA it is an offense to be in POSSESSION of a forged instrument, and can attract jail terms of up to FIFTEEN YEARS.

If anyone is found with one in his possession then it could be very awkward to explain.
