I’ve heard of this before, total scam. Steer clear sweetie! The cashiers cheque you cash will bounce, leaving you owing the bank for the funds if you withdraw it before it clears. My bank doesn’t put a hold on my account so you might be like me. If I deposited the cheque I can withdraw the same amount instantly, then I’d be screwed. It’s crazy, you can’t trust anyone!!

Hasn’t happend to me, but it’s definitely scammers. There are warnings all over craigslist about this, and I’ve read tons of stories about it.

@TheHotMrsG:  that’s a straight up scam. i’ve heard of people doing this with all sorts of things. you pay and western union some money or something for the “shipping” and then you wait for the rest of your money…that never comes. so then you’re out of the dress, and all kinds of money.

It is a well-known scam…

Be careful when you sell stuff on-line.  There are a lot of dishonest people out there trolling for innocent victims.

From what I’ve heard… PayPal is your friend… at least then you have more control over things.

Hope this helps,

its a horrible fact of life that there are assholes everywhere. in real life, and people who want to scam you when you just want to make an honest transaction.

dont trust methods like that – insist on paypal or steer clear. there are some other methods ive heard are safe but i dont know enough to recommend them

best of luck!!
