Scammed on ebay

I tried to sell my record decks on Ebay (2 x Technics 1210's from my days as a raver) The winning 'bidder' then sent this highly suspicious email..
Hi,  
  I am happy to buy this item from you that i saw on
ebay.however, it look great and I 'm interested in
purchasing it.Concerning the shipment,my shipper will
come and pick it up from your location as soon as we
seal this transaction. A client of mine in uk is owing
me some funds (£3,800)and i have inform him about this
transaction and i will instruct him to issue the
cashier cheque in your name and once the cheque clear
in your account you will deduct the cost of the
(2x Technics 1210 MkII Deconomix console, 100
records}{£410.00}and icompensate you £50 with your 
money and you will send my remaining balance to my
Shipper via western union money transfer for immediate
shipping arrangment. If this is okay with you do get
back to me immediately with your
information as listed below for me to instruct my
client to issue the
cashier cheque in your name.Hope to hear from you
soonest. 

NAME : 
ADDRESS: 
CITY: 
STATE:
ZIP CODE:

TEL NUMBER:
Best regards, 


N.B, THE CHEQUE WILL CLEAR YOUR BANK BEFORE THE
SHIPPER COME FOR THE PICK
A quick check on the bidder's ID showed that this 'person' had tried it on with several folks. And is now barred But as another person put it, doing any sort of business on ebay is getting harder and harder.
