Yes it is, I got the same one for my atv and sled, there from the UK and want to pay you more than you are asking right. Check out the scams forum here you can read about it. I believe they hijacked the Monkey Ads sight, is that where you are advertising it.

Scam!!! I have a fake check from one of these clowns- would you like to see it? It looks very similar to a real one.

I have gotten that same pitch via e-mail at least six times in the last three months and it sounded almost identical. An alarm should go off when he wants you to cash a check in excess of the amount required for the deal. By the time the transaction is completed the certified check turns out to be bogus and your screwed, holding the bag.
