I bolded and underlined all the key points in this fake e-mail. Yup this is 100% fake. I sold a horse and I got an e-mail similar to this.

Chances are, he would send you fake money or something along the line. Take the horse, and either keep it or sell it to slaughter.
My dad had something like this before. And he ended up calling CIA. No joke. The fake buyer sent someone to pick up the goods, by the time the guy came out of the store the police guys (SQUAT, right?) were surrounding the buildings with heavy guns. My dad was there and saw it all happen, he said it was pretty darn cool.
When this happened to me we were thinking about doing the same and busting the people, but for the safety of everybody we didn't do it.
I hope this doesn't happen to you again.
Maybe in your ad you can include "MUST SEE HORSE FIRST BEFORE PAYING" or something like that.
