    And you don't think the scammer is going to get wise to that and cancel the check after day 10, or day 20 or day 28 even.


    Also, if the original scammer is that dumb, then Spikito would be guilty of fraud, which would not be smart on his part at all.

    it wasn't a serious suggestion, but it would be funny if it worked. and how is that fraud if he gives the guy the title after the check is secure?

    You didn't mention anything about giving the title over, I assumed you meant cash the check, keep the money and the title, since you said, scam the scammer. If he did get the money and didn't turn the title over, that would be fraud.

    I've actually heard about these scams. What happens is that you cash or deposit it at your bank. You then take responsibility of that amount. It's in the fine print that you over looked when you started your account I think. Anyhow, the scammer then cancels his check that he sent to you and your bank still processes it. You are then without the cash. Even if they cashed it for you, your account will be charged that amount. That could put you negative in most cases. The scammer gets his cash back for the check he issued that he had to purchase and by that time the scammer has received the product. I think that's how it goes though. I was warned a few months back about this and I even think they had this scam on the local news.
