SALES SCAM. The check the “buyer” sends you is a fake. If you deposit it into
your account and then obtain a Cashiers Check for the difference and send it to
the accomplice, it will be cashed before the fake check you deposited is
returned to your bank and charged back to your account. You will be ripped off
for the amount of the Cashiers Check that you sent. You might want to warn the
members in the magazine.
