Scam Email: Abdul-Quahaal

This scammer went right for the fake name that doesn't even sound english, perhaps hoping that might explain the bad grammar and formatting. This scammer also wasted no time in going right for the meat of the scam, that they will use their third party shipper (which really doesn't exist). That way, they can then in a later email explain why they are sending payment for MORE than the amount and ask you to send the difference on to the shipper via Western Union. Again - no shipper. Fake payment (whether by check or credit card). Only them at the other end of Western Union, collecting up your good money in a very untraceable way.

Don't fall for it.
