Watch out for that. I did this with my last boat 5 or 6 years ago. You take that to a bank and try to cash it or "verify" it and they will black list you and close your account. Even though you were on the wrong end of the scam they will close your account.

Ask me how I know this? I had the "I'll show you" attitude going and tried to deposit it then Bank of America closed my account and never let me back again.... Not that I want to go back to BOA but they put me on some kind of list thats for sure.

Gloria Labrado is another one. I was suspicious and Googled her name.....and then had some fun with her over email.
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!
