Is it possible? Sure.

Is it likely? No.

Spammers usually are trying to sell something, not buy something. Just use common sense, if the offer seems sketchy just ignore it and move on.

There are actually a lot of scams that involve someone buying an item you have for sale. In one instance they want to send you a cashiers check for more than the item is worth and have you cash it and send the difference back. I see this ALL THE TIME at my check cashing store. The checks are counterfeits and you get stuck with no money, no item, and a counterfeit check charge. They get the item and the money that you sent back.

Like eng said just use common sense.
