@MayaBean:  I got the same message – how did you find out it was a scam?

@gangqinjia:  This is a pretty typical internet scam.  They send you a cashier’s check way over the amount you are asking and then ask you to send the rest back to them for whatever purpose.  By the time  you have sent the money (via western union), your bank informs you that the check has bounced and they then debit the entire amount of the check from  your account and you’re out the amount that you wired.

@greenviolets:  Ouch. Good to know. I was just going to ask her whether she meant “certified check” or “cashier’s check” because they’re two different things, but I’m definitely glad y’all told me!

@gangqinjia:  Glad to know you haven’t moved forward yet!  Always be careful when the person says “the item listed” and has poor spelling and grammar.  If the person doesn’t ask many questions that you would ask if you were purchasing something, beware!!  Always be careful when they talk about courier services, etc.
