Very well known and well publicized scam. He is asking you to ship stolen merchandise. Ignore this e-mail and any others like it.

Boy, this old scam is still around?
Please stop looking at Craigslist for jobs. Consider it Scams List.
And know that anything to make money from home is 100% scam.
Other answerers will go through the trouble of telling you how this work.
It involves them sending you a fake check that bounces, and you sending money to them
