Default First Scam Email on my Ad

After receiving 2 well-written emails from this guy about my boat that is for sale, I receive this today

Thanks for getting back to me. I will offer you $17,000 for it and i will like to inform you that i will be having our local transporters to come to your location for a test drive process on the boat and moreover I will have to make a down payment to you so as to make you reserve the boat for me for not getting it sold to other interested buyer's till the test drive and the sale will be done as it would take time to get all of that done

I will make a down payment of $2000 and also I will include the test drive fees which will cost for $2500 and mind you I want the payment made out to you by check and also as soon as the funds of $4500 have been cleared into your account I will like you to have the boat ready for the test drive process and also you will make the remaining funds of $2500 payable to the transporters to cover for the inspection/test drive fees and all other expenses during inspection

I will be looking forward for proceedings to you and also get back to me with the full names, mailing address and phone number the check can be made payable to you

I will be looking forward to hear from you

Regards
Mark

What does this guy have against ending sentences? Can a guy get a period?

Tell him "Great. I will await your cashier's check made payable to <any name you want -- you aren't going to get a real cashier's check, but even if you did you could easily endorse to your account>, but I already have other interested buyers, so you better hurry. When should I expect to receive your funds?"

I simply told him to take his BS elsewhere.
