Often, these are stolen checks that will clear initially, then later the bank will want their money back when it is discovered the check was bad. You are out your gear and the money.

I just got the same message from him and thought it looked a bit shady so I came here to search.

Yep, definitely a scam.

Ok... so this idiot was buying something from me for $200. He sent a cashier's check for $3640 and wants me to western union the rest back to the other idiot listed below. The check had a return address of San Diego. The tracking information says it comes from PA and the cashier's check comes from a bank in TX. Is there a law enforcement agency that cares enough to go after this guy?
