i go thru this all the time. i have 8-10 counterfeit checks here in the office that i've rec'd from buyers all over the globe. it may clear your acct....but 2,3,4 weeks later it'll be charged back. i always contact the bank that the check is drawn on to verify before i even depoit it. best bet is an escrow service. good luck

That is not the question of the day.
The true question is how are stupid the people falling for it?

All it takes is ONE out of how many thousands are selling something to fall for it.

Remember all those $1 ads in the back of woodworkers or Popular mechanics? Send me a Dollar and I will send youo a copy of how to build it!

I know many people who made $$$$$$ on those ads.
I was one of them as a kid
