Does This Sound Suspicious?

I'm negotiating with a seller on eBay via eBay Messages. Does he sound suspicious or sincere and just poor English?

Do they have the original receipt of purchase?

I would ask if they have the original receipt of purchase, and to provide you with a pic of it and and of the seal on the unopened Apple box.

Maybe it's stolen and he's preventing fingerprints?

Didn't ask about receipt, but the box isn't sealed.

Yes it does, especially if you have to ask a forum.
