I'm Confused

OK. I consider myself pretty intelligent but I can't even make sense out of this... As some know if you've looked in "for sale" thread I'm selling my bike, I also have it post on CL. I got this response.

Hello,
Thanks for your prompt response.Nice to read from you .. well i am okay with your description of the item and also the price and i will be buying , but am very busy at work for now and i will like to tell you my only method of payment is via certifiled
bank check..and the check will contain my shipper fund .. and once you get
the check cleared from your bank .. the esxcess fund on the check will be
wire to my shipper via western union /moneygram money transfer to be able to come over
for the pick up at your place ...And i will advise you to withdraw the advert from the web. please if you are okay with this term ..
kindly get back to me with your full details that will be on the payment
check asap.
1 your full name
2 your full address
3 your state and your zipcode
your phone number .....
thankx

I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO READ FROM YOU.

He is sending you a counterfeit check, which you will be able to cash and then when the bank realizes the mistake and you have already sent his money to him, you will have to pay the bank back that money.
